It was wonderful to be out on the crystalline Bay of Islands water in sunny weather. Along with friendly, informative crew it was a great way to spend the morning.

This 4.5 hour cruise out to the Hole in the Rock was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Stops to get off at Motuarohia Island and the climb to the Lookout returned incredible views across the Bay of Islands. The weather was calm enough this day to drive through the hole in the rock! The second stop off was to Otehei Bay for an hour to have lunch and stretch the legs. The guides were only polite and very nice to talk with, always looking out for their customers while on the very comfortable boat. Would recommend this tour to anyone coming through the Bay of Islands.

A fabulous 4.5 hour cruise from Paihia to the Hole in the Rock, stopping at Roberton island for a walk up to the lookout . Amazing views. We sailed through the Hole in the Rock, viewed the lighthouse and keepers house. The crew were very friendly & knowledgeable of the local area. The tour was really enjoyable.

This tour is phenomenal… our skipper and co skipper were lovely and super experienced and very knowledgeable about local history with a deep family connection to the area. We hit some rough seas as we had a high wind day but always felt safe. The scenery is stunning and the time frame provides an immersive experience. The 2 stop offs were fabulous and I would definitely come back to do this in the summer. Support a local family business. Well worth it !

Great friendly team on board provided a fantastic service. Awesome scenery, saw dolphin, snorkeled, tried kina on the beach and a lovely cuppa after our walk to Cook's lookout. Highly recommend.
