A favourite experience in New Zealand

My group loved this activity. The boat ride around the Bay of Islands was amazing. We lazed in the sun and took in the stunning views all around. Then the excitement when our boat actually went through the Hole in the Rock. It was a perfect day of fun and relaxation with a little history of the area thrown in. Highly recommend this experience.

We saw dolphins!

The trip out to the rock and back was so cool and a great way to see the sights of the bay of islands. Me and my partner enjoyed this trip. The skipper was informative and fun and the crew very welcoming
