The idea of the "boat and bach" package has been so popular that we decided to add more baches for our clients. The "Boat & Bach" option allows the freedom of a Sounds bach holiday with the fun and adventure of a runabout for all your days activities – fishing, diving, biscuiting, waterskiing etc. You control your transport to and from the bach without needing to coordinate with a water-taxi timetable further offsetting the cost as well. 

With the choice of  80+ baches well positioned through-out the Sounds, we have options for everyone. All we insist is you choose a bach with a safe mooring and/or jetty. You will find all details provided about this one each bach webpage. We also have a great holiday house (sleeps 12) 2 minutes from Waikawa boat ramp for those who still require a little civilisation close at hand!

The Boat

"Orion" is the best of the lot. Powered by a 175HP Yamaha with a 15HP aux. Having an enclosed Hard Top you have all round protection from any weather you encounter. New colour chart plotter, fish finder, washdown pump, stereo, trim tabs, water ski pole, a very comfortable with a fantastic cockpit and all the facilities for fishing.
