About Us

Welcome to Bay of Islands Shuttles and Shore Trips.

We are a locally owned company and we operate in the wider Bay of Islands area.  We specialise in providing  short tours for passengers from Cruise Ships. Our Cruise Ships tours range from 2 to 4 hours making them perfect for passengers who have limited time ashore in the Bay of Islands but would like to see as much as possible.

All our drivers and guides reside in the Opua or Paihia area and are passionate about showing visitors the best that this amazing region has to offer.

The Bay of Islands is one of the most picturesque and popular holiday sites in New Zealand, combining great outdoor experiences with some of New Zealand's most significant historic sites. It was here in 1840 at Waitangi that the British Government signed a treaty with the indigenous Maori people which gave birth to the nation.

This area is steeped in New Zealand’s early history and the role Maori culture played in the development of the country.

All of our guided tours offer you a plethora of outstanding views and wonderful photo opportunities. Our driver/guides are all local people and can give you further insights into their communities.

Our tours for cruise ship passengers start at either Waitangi Wharf  (which is where the tender from from your ship disembarks you) or Paihia.
