Great Mercury Island Cruise
- Duration: 10 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Whitianga, New Zealand
- Product code: GMI
This is a big day out to one of the prettiest places on earth. We depart at 8:00 am for the 15 nautical mile journey. It is way off other tourist routes and a real treat to experience. This cruise allows us to trim the sails and feel the old schooner healing with the wind. Weather permitting, we head for Peach Grove, which we often have to ourselves. Once there, you have so many options. You can swim or paddleboard ashore in the crystal clear water followed by a walk on the flawless beach. You can then take a short jaunt through the bush to a stunning waterfall and enjoy a dip in the freshwater pool, whatever you choose to do. Native parrots, kaka and tui are abundant so you are sure to catch sight of these beautiful creatures along with seabirds and dolphins.
