Tonga Island Marine Reserve, in New Zealand's South Island, is filled with beautiful sights and curious creatures, and with this day tour you can explore the region and meet some of the friendly locals. The journey begins with a 1.5-hour cruise into Tonga Island Marine Reserve from Kaiteriteri to get up close to the Tonga Island Seal Colony, a major highlight of this trip, and take in views of the beautiful Tonga Quarry Beach.

Getting off the boat, you'll then continue to explore the region on foot. Crossing the swing bridge near Bark Bay Falls, walking over a forested saddle, trekking the Bark Bay waterfall trail, and relaxing in the picturesque Bark Bay Beach and Medlands Beach, this tour combines adventure, exploration, and relaxation.

The golden sands of both Bark Bay Beach and Medlands Beach contrasting against the azure waters are the perfect spots to picnic on the shoreline and cool off with a swim, and after the 2-hour walk around the reserve, you'll be wanting to dive in and cool off.
