Find a comfortable seat on the deck of the catamaran and settle in for your half-day scenic tour. This high-speed cruise allows you to experience multiple attractions in the Bay of Islands in a single trip, which tours on slower boats can’t manage. As you travel, you’ll enjoy in-depth commentary about the area’s geology, environment, Maori heritage, flora, and fauna from your guide.
Keep an eye out for local marine life such as sea birds, penguins, dolphins, seals, and whales.

We went on a cruise to the Hole In The Rock earlier this month. The weather was really rough, so we didn't get to go through the hole, but you cannot predict this. Also no dolphins to be seen due to the weather. It was...More
