Bay of Islands Bus Pass

If you're looking for a chance to escape Auckland for a couple days, this bus pass is the one for you. The pass includes travel from Auckland to Paihia / Bay of Islands - a piece of New Zealand paradise with a sub tropical climate and heaps of beaches to explore. 

You can add this onto any of our other small group tours or bus passes if you have a couple extra days to explore. In the summer on the way from Auckland to Paihia, we include a stop at the Goat Island Marine Reserve where you can snorkel in the incredibly clear waters. 

Once you arrive in Paihia, you can head out and explore the Bay of Islands or book a day tour up to the very tip of the North Island - Cape Reinga and 90 Mile Beach.
