"The Hole in the Rock" cruise with 2 island stopovers was awesome. Adam & Blue were so friendly, informative and helpful, they were just terrific. We had a stopover on Roberton Island and the walk to the top of the lookout provided stunning views of the island and coastline. Passing through the hole in the rock was thrilling and then we had an hour to snorkel or swim. We were also lucky to see pods of dolphins, fairy penguins and huge schools of fish.Such a great day.

We picked this trip as boat called in at 2 islands, as well as visiting hole in rock. Fantastic crew, really friendly, great commentary. Captain stopped so we could see small blue penguins, and dolphins came right up to the boat. We even had a talk about sea urchins just before we got on boat to return to paihia/Russell. Really recommend this trip

My 4th trip to Hole in the Rock since the first way back in the nineties. This was the best by far.
A smaller vessel and it felt personalised from our warm New Year's day welcome, right through to our return to Paihia wharf.
The opportunity to leave the vessel was our highlight. An hour to chill on the beach, while others snorkelled and swam. If only I'd remembered to pack my swimming gear.
Commentary at different parts on our trip was informative, especially when dolphins and other wildlife were spotted.
A highly recommended trip - well done team!

We went on the Bay of Islands boat trip to the hole in the rock. Adam and his crew were incredible, so helpful and friendly. They offered us blankets in case we were cold, although it was a warm sunny day, but early in the season. We were taken to Roberton island and the views were incredible, we also stopped at a conservation island where you could swim and there was a cafe serving good food. Whilst there the crew gave out food for the fish and there were lots of them and a Pied Shag diving for the fish. We went to the Hole in the Rock which is was exciting and even more so as Adam decided the conditions were safe and sailed through it. You know you are in safe hands if someone can do that! The whole experience couldn’t have been better and I highly recommend it especially as it’s such good value

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.
