Experience Northland’s best kept secret.
The Perfect Day ocean cruise will take you on a half day journey of marine adventure for the whole family. Above and below water, the Poor Knights Islands are abundantly populated with unique and incredibly varied plant, animal and fish life, and thoroughly deserve their protected status.Converging warm water currents, a micro-climate and thousands of years of separation from the mainland have resulted in a unique biodiversity with the world’s largest sea cave, only living dinosaur and largest insect.
The Maori history of the Poor Knights is dramatic, turbulent and astonishing, especially considering the inhospitable nature of the craggy Islands. Perfect Day is a multi-level cruise boat that has air-conditioned comfort, full toilet and hot shower facilities, so you can experience a day at your own level; from sunbathing, relaxing and bird watching, to kayaking, snorkeling or even diving for the first time. Full buffet lunch provided, mask, fins and snorkel equipment included, as well as a live camera that drops over the side so you can view the multitude of fish in this marine reserve without getting wet!
