Tauranga & Rotorua Cruise Tours

Tauranga Cruise Tours 

Tauranga is home to the beautiful Mount Maunganui Beach – it’s famous for its sunny climate, white sand surf beaches and relaxed lifestyle.

Your ship will berth in the Port of Tauranga – a dramatic harbour dominated by Mount Maunganui – or Mauao, which rises 232m from the water.

Known as the ‘fruit bowl’ – the Tauranga region is the heart of New Zealand’s kiwifruit industry and a powerhouse in New Zealand agriculture.

Its also an area area surrounded by forested mountain ranges and deep ravines and dramatic waterfalls. A shore tour in this port is an excursion which will leave memories of great scenery, warm climate and lifestyle.

Rotorua Geothermal Cruise Tours 

Rotorua is well-known for its geothermal activity and rejuvenating spa therapies. The town is surrounded by sparkling lakes, forests, mountains and rivers which all provide a base for a great range of adventure activities.

Situated about 1 hours drive from the Tauranga Port, Rotorua is steeped in Maori history and is the perfect place to hear the legends and experience the arts and crafts of New Zealand’s native people.

Rotorua was New Zealand’s first true tourist destination with the Pink and White Terraces on the edge of Lake Tarawera – these were sadly destroyed in a volcanic eruption in 1886. A day tour to this region from your cruise ship will unveil beautiful scenery as well as providing you an enriching cultural experience.
