The Ultimate Great Barrier Island Tour

Your ‘Barrier Big Day Out’ begins when you board Sundancer at Whangaparapara Wharf.
Imagine cruising up the beautiful west coast of Great Barrier Island, exploring the private and secluded bays and inlets on the way, meandering through the Broken Islands and visiting the Gannet colony.
Enjoy dolphins on the bow and the sun on your face as you make your way through the Man-O-War passage and into the stunning Port Fitzroy harbour.
After a delicious on-board lunch, your personal tour guide will meet you at the Fitzroy wharf to begin the road tour back down the east coast of the island.
