Local Attractions & Activities

The Tui Motel’s central location is an ideal departure point for all Bay of Islands activities. We are positioned 150m from Paihia’s wharf which translates to an easy, flat stroll to scenic cruises, dolphin swimming, Russell ferries and the beaches. We are the closest motel to the Ex-Serviceman’s Club (RSA).

We have extensive experience and knowledge about the various excursions available in the Bay. We are happy to book your trip in advance or you can visit us at reception and create an unforgettable holiday with our expert local knowledge. We’re always happy to recommend our favourite day trips.
