Tauranga is a busy port city on the beautiful Bay of Plenty coastline and just 2.5 hours’ drive from Auckland. Tauranga also provides easy access to the most popular tourist locations of Rotorua, Waitomo Caves and Hobbiton Movie Set. Our airport is nearby in Mount Maunganui, and this popular seaside location is a fantastic destination for holidays, surfing, fishing, cafes, boutique shopping. The Bay of Plenty has now become a much desired destination for cruise ships, conferences & sporting events and has recently adopted the phrase “Plenty to do for Everyone”.

The Bay of Plenty has so much to offer and our close proximity to Rotorua and its geothermal wonders (1 hour drive) Waitomo Glowworm Caves (2 hours) and Hobbiton Movie Set (1 hour drive) is an added bonus. Gather together your friends or family, take one of our people mover vehicles and have a fantastic day ashore.
