We have two beautiful new Jeep Wranglers to take our guests on safari. Being 4WD they are in their element when we hit our rural gravel roads on our tours. You have a lovely high view from the Jeeps and with air-conditioning available you will be cool and comfortable, or we can open the top and let the wind blow the cobwebs out.
The prices includes up to four passengers in your group and if both of our Jeeps are available, we can cater for groups of up to eight. Simply book two Safaris and we will saddle up both wagons for you!
We have a selection of standard Jeep Safaris that you can choose from starting at 4 hours and extending up to a 10 hour trek. Some of the tours have a specific theme but all can be tailored to your individual tastes. These usually depart from the Paihia i-Site but we can easily pick you up from your local accommodation in Paihia, Opua or Russell.
We also have a selection of excursions that are ideal if you are visiting from a cruise ship and are looking for a shore excursion or are limited in your time in the Bay. They cover a selection of the top sights in the Bay of Islands but also are designed to get you away from the crowds whenever possible. If you arrive by cruise ship we will pick you up from the tender jetty in Waitangi otherwise we can pick you up either from the i-Site or your Paihia, Opua or Russell accommodation.
Let your hair down and enjoy a blast in our Mustang V8 Convertible. Since 1964 Mustangs were born to be saddled up and ridden and for owner and beast to live life to the fullest, with passion, and excitement.
Remember the buzz of getting your first car – possibly with a staggering 100 bhp if you were lucky, constantly working on it, tweaking it, modifying it and just cruising without a care? A trip in our Mustang often triggers all those lovely old memories of living the dream when you were younger and much more!
“Hearts flutter at the sheer mention of her, then knees start to tremble at the thought of possibly sitting in her. Just wait until we take you for a spin with her – your grin will start to ache and you get to understand what is special about Mustangs and muscle cars. The brakes are amazing, the control is wonderful, the engine is powerful, it is just an extraordinary machine.”
It is a wild beast, always pawing to get out, not designed to be let out once in a blue moon! Let Mark and “RIDEV8” ignite your spark in cars and life, with up to 3 passengers included in the price.
Similar to the Jeep Tours we have a selection of excursions that are ideal if you are visiting the Bay from a cruise ship and are looking for a shore excursion or are limited in your time in the Bay. They cover the top sights that are accessible to the Mustang and are designed to get you away from it all as much as possible and we will pick you up from the tender Jetty in Waitangi.
If you are not arriving in the bay by cruise ship then the half and one hour rides depart from Russell Wharf in the afternoons. The longer excursions depart from the Paihia i-Site or we can pick you up from your local accommodation in Paihia, Opua or Russell.
Keen on something that you can’t find on one of our standard tours? Let us know what you want to do and we will tailor you a custom outing to suit your tastes. We have a lovely selection of wineries and craft beers in the Bay of Islands and have beautiful chocolate, cheese and art galleries available too. No two tours are ever the same, as the interaction with our guests can steer the tour from a sightseeing tour, to a focus on dairy farming, history, art or whatever road we go down.
Do you like to sleep in? Short of time? Would you like your end your tour just before you get on your plane out of Kerikeri? We can work your tour time to suit your plans. Love taking pictures? We are always happy to stop in the perfect (and safe) position for you to take that once in a lifetime photo when a passenger calls out – “photo stop please”. Have you been wanting to ask questions about NZ while you have been on holiday? Well on our tours, there is no set commentary, there is just you and your guide. We love answering our guest’s questions and engaging with them.
