Leave the city behind and cruise to an island paradise with white sandy beaches, native birds, plant life, and crystal-clear waters that are safe for Adults and Children to swim.
Motuihe Island is a great destination for Day trips, Picnics, and Walks around the island’s coast,
where rocky platforms alternate with sandy beaches, and give visitors a chance to explore the island, enjoy wide views of the Hauraki Gulf and visit relics of the island’s varied history.
Guided walks and tours are available on the island when booking as well as the opportunity to undertake conservation work alongside the Motuihe trust. Camping is permitted on Motuihe at the various campsites and can be booked through the department of conservation. Wether you are going to lay on the beach and enjoy the sunshine, take a guided tour, go camping, or be part of the conservation effort, Motuihe will be the perfect destination for you.

Vaccination Policy: The Red Boats will require everyone who travels with us regardless of the service (Fishing, party cruises, ferry services) to be fully vaccinated and carry a vaccination passport on them to be shown upon boarding of ANY vessel we operate. Due to the recent government mandate, if we do not adopt this approach then we are unable to operate any of our services until we reach the Green Light setting which could be months away. We will require proof of vaccination and identification for all guests aged 12 and over. Vaccination certificates can be ordered from the Ministry of Health website, we encourage you to have these ready as we await the release of the digital passport system. Refunds will not be offered for any passengers or guests who are unable to provide a vaccination passport upon boarding our vessels.
