  • As New Zealanders we often travel overseas before we explore our own country. Here at The Rock Adventure Cruise we wanted to make it as easy as possible for you to explore the Bay of Islands. Joining up to the Local Mates mean you can take a weekend away each year in the Bay of Islands including a nights accommodation, three meals and all your activities for less than a coffee per day*.

  • As a bonus for being one of our mates we will throw in a YHA membership which gives you deals all over New Zealand and abroad at restaurants, activities and accommodation.


    And if you are like us, then you love doing great things for your community. With that in mind we are going to donate $1 each week to Bay Bush Action for every Local Mate.

  • Subscribe now for 12 easy weekly payments of $25.00 to enjoy a weekend away in the Bay of Island while helping to save our native wildlife + forests. You can book to travel anytime in the next 24 months once sign up is complete and 1st payment is made.
