The idea of the "Boat and Bach" package has been so popular in recent years 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, water skiing 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 4 runabouts and 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 on 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 civilization close at hand!
