The Triple C

Cove, Caves & Coastline Cruise

We are on the water for 2 1/2 hours to ensure you get an in depth look at the volcanic coastline between Mercury Bay and Cathedral Cove with its many sea caves, blowholes and golden beaches.
The Triple C scenic cruises depart at either 9.30am or 1.00pm and 4.00pm.

The Triple C cruise leaves from Whitianga wharf, we journey below the towering Shakespeare’s cliff and past the historic Cooks Beach.

We visit Cathedral Cove and the islands in the Marine Reserve, then explore the spectacular volcanic caves and coastline around Champagne Bay.

We will enter a variety of sea caves around the coast including looking up through Cooks Blowhole and of course the magnificent Orua cave.

Swimming with the fish in the Marine Reserve with our on board snorkel gear. Snorkeling in the reserve is a fantastic experience for all ages. We will provide life jackets for those less confident in the water. If available on the day our crew can be in the water to assist if required. Please ask in advance if you might need this additional assistance.

There will be time to swim and snorkel in the marine reserve (20-30min will be allocated if conditions permit).

Not into getting wet!

We also have included on the boat 2 new bathyscope. These tubes allow you the advantage of a great close up view of the fish without getting wet, great when its a bit cold to swim.
