Sea Shuttle Bay of Islands
#1 of 48 Tours in Paihia
When we arrived in Paihia we picked this tour out of the large number of boat tours available as it seemed the most interactive and we wanted the opportunity to explore and participate in the on water activities.
Brilliant day with Caity and Adam, on the full day trip (5hours) I have been on one of the other tours in the area and this one way by far the best, small groups, and more personal.

Would highly recommend it, absolute value for money and a bit off the beaten track, and to meet locals - really good stuff - a refreshing change from commercial tours.
Overall it was a great experience and out of all the ways I've seen the bay with other operators and on several different tours this was up there as one of the best!

When we visited the Bay of Islands aboard the Celebrity Solstice this week, we chose to take a private Jeep tour with Rogue Pony Tours ... which proved to be an inspired choice.

Phantom Sailing Russell 3.5 km away
#1 of 17 Tours in Russell
I totally agree with all the comments made by earlier reviewers - forget the bigger tours and join Rick and Robin on their lovely racing yacht "Phantom" you cannot but enjoy your time aboard.
We chose Phantom deliberately for our day sail (after a recommendation from Tiki Tiki Ora owners Mark and Angelique) because we wanted a more intimate experience than the commercialized large group tours.

My boyfriend and I did a bit of sailing so we decided to rent a boat for the day and check out the area as it is cheaper then booking a Tour and gives you a lot of freedom.
We did the inappropriately named Cliffs and Caves tour- this trip is much better than its name!

Great service and even a personal guided tour.
Still, the boat tour of the Poor Knights and the commentary was first class so if your not into diving, its still a great day out.
