Overview

Enjoy a ‘Perfect Day’ out on the water. On this one day Snorkel the Poor Knights Small Group Tour from Auckland, explore Poor Knights, a world heritage site and marine playground in New Zealand, which legendary ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau named one of the best dive and snorkelling spots on the planet. You will find incredible scenery, a large population of marine mammals, a variety of sea caves including the world’s largest, and some of the world’s top snorkelling sites. There are also unique flora to be seen as well as an abundance of sea birds, fascinating rock history, plenty of kayaking opportunities, great food and spacious, comfortable launch.

On this tour, we collect you from your hotel then journey north to the Tutukaka coast. Expect to be greeted with the unfolding scenery of New Zealand’s east coast beaches, mountains and forests along the way. Finally we arrive at the Tutukaka Marina where your real adventure begins.

Step aboard Perfect Day, a large comfortable launch featuring ample indoor and outdoor space and fitted with all the equipment and comforts you might need to experience what this boat promises to deliver. Then you cast off for a 23km open ocean trip to the islands with a chance to encounter a variety of marine life along the way.

On reaching the island, you’ll find many protected harbours that will make your stay safe and comfortable. The choice of where to seek shelter is yours. Your hosts will show you around the islands that are truly a marvel of nature, and even lead you right inside the world’s largest sea cave. Following this tour, you’ll have time to explore this world-renowned marine icon as you kayak or snorkel around the caves and arches and see the wonderful marine life that calls it home.
After your time in the water, refuel with delicious complimentary buffet lunch, coffee and tea before enjoying some more relaxing time or sunbathing on the boat. Then you will be heading back to shore as the ocean part of your trip comes to a close.

Your friendly guide will drop you off to your local accommodation after landing on the shore, or drive you back to Auckland and cap off your Perfect Day with a few surprise stops on the way.
