Very quick to organise and confirm the booking. Great tour on the day with very helpful tour operators.

Product rating:

Very friendly tour operators, when we were running late they switched us to the afternoon tour no questions asked. Gave us the chance to cruise around the bay of islands and see two pods of dolphins!

Perfekt oplevelse, hvor vi fik set mange delfiner. Meget fin information fra besætningen undervejs om, hvad vi så. Vejret tillod, at vi kunne sejle gennem Hole in the Rock, så helt perfekt.

Service rating:

Fantastic experience, great commentary explaining historic sights etc. along the way. Beautiful weather and calm seas allowed us to go through the hole in the rock, and a bonus to encounter a pod of Common dolphins as well. Really enjoyable trip!

Great trip, worth the money. The Captain and crew were excellent! The Captains commentary and humour made the trip exciting and he had the whole boat happy and laughing.
We got to the Hole in the rock and had Dolphins join our boat ride twice. Would recommend to all ages.

Sadly the day was too rough for the full cruise. Wisely you did not attempt anything silly with safety no 1. You did your best to offer everyone alternatives which was the best I have seen for some time. The dolphins made the day

Everything Travel Group Review

Wow! What an awesome half day!! This is a big call but I'd say this is probably the best value for money trip in New Zealand. You get to see dolphins, cruise out to the Hole in the Rock, go for a swim at Otehei Bay and enjoy the spectacular Bay of Islands views from the comfort of the fast catamaran. All for under $100.

Suggestions: If you want to make a full day of it for no extra charge then book the morning departure and you can stay at Otehei Bay resort for 4 hours and wait for the afternoon boat to take you back to Paihia. Also be sure to take a sweater or jacket as it can get a bit cold on the boat if its windy.

Is this cruise suitable for pregnant women? How fast does the boat go? Are the waters choppy? Thanks!
