Travel to Great Barrier Island
Our next tour of Great Barrier Island is on Monday 22nd March to Friday 26th November 2021. (just two seats left)
We stay in Auckland for one night and we car ferry by Sealink Ferries early the next morning. Staying the night prior to when we sail makes it so much easier for everyone as the Ferry travels at roughly 7:30am, and it does take tme to collect our clients along the way.
Great Barrier Island is a perfect get away place to visit, if you love nature and the sea and knowing about the history and being with like minded people then come join us.
Last summer we had a great grtoup of clients all ready to head off and then Covid struck us a day before we were to head off. We set off early morning from Mangawhai and head to Mahurangi collecting our clients from North Auckland all the way to Orewa. We catch the Sealink Ferry from downtown Auckland which takes four and a half hours to get to Great Barrier Island. The time soon passes by with the gorgeous sunshine and site-seeing along the way.
Our accomodation in Nove and then again in March 2022 is at Gt Barrier Lodge. Bookings are now being taken for both trips. Contact us, Lynette 0276264427 and home on 09 4313358.
We experienced so much at Great Barrier Island
While there, we took a wonderful boat trip on the launch, ‘Hooked on Barrier’. We had a wonderful day with a fabulous guide, Lyndsay. We stopped off at Swens, who is a local on the Island who makes beautiful products for well being and skincare from the bees. I must say the majority off the group brought something back home with them
While on the Boat trip one of our lovely ladies, Jo, lost her Sketcher shoe, I actually think Pete knocked it off the boat while he was happily cleaning all the shoes that were covered in mud from visiting Swens. Galantly Peter hoped into a near by Dinghy and chased the shoe. Peter saved the day and the shoe. We do go the extra mile and there were lots of laughs and we all looked on in ore as the shoe slowly started heading out around the bay.
We found the Great Barrier Island to be a relaxing, laid back fabulous place to stay. We visited craft shops, galleries, beaches, ate out at some nice eateries. and some of the group even went for a hike. There is so much to do, from relaxing with a book, walking the beautiful bays, hiking, bush walks, camping, sitting at the local having a beer or wine, and basically just having a great time away from it all at Great Barrier Island.
