Cruises from Rotorua (Tauranga)

Rotorua (Tauranga) is a centre of tourism and a place of extraordinary natural beauty. It is a smallish city on the shores of a lake of the same name, in the crater of an ancient volcano in the Bay of Plenty region of the North Island of New Zealand. The entire area is thermally active, and the smell of sulphur, a 'rotten eggs’ smell that is never far, results in the nicknames 'Sulphur City' and 'Rottenrua'.

The surrounding geothermal wonderland including 16 beautiful lakes and the lush green of the abundant native flora, soon causes one to get used to the odour.

Rotorua (Tauranga) Cruise Calendar

Port Highlights

  • Grab your swimmers and strap in for a kayaking adventure at Waimarino Adventure Park. Here you can enjoy a ride down the kayak slide, rock climbing and diving boards, a glow worm cave tour at twilight or even just a relaxing swim in one of the natural thermal hot pools.

  • Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland is New Zealand’s most colourful natural volcanic area, so it makes for spectacular sights and feats of nature. Go for a walk at your own pace and take in the bubbling mud, huge volcanic craters and even the Lady Know Geyser which will generally erupt around 10:15AM each day.

  • The Hobbiton Movie Set Tour is an essential stop for movie lovers when visiting Tauranga. Journey through the 12 acre set used in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies and then end your Middle Earth adventure with a special brew in the Green Dragon Inn.
