William said... I have visited the Bay of Islands 8 times, and I have always been turned off by the big tour companies, the crowds of people, the large boats, and the high prices. Well, this time I had the pleasure to go out on the Albatross, a smaller boat with no crowds, with a very reasonable (much lower) price. The owner was actually in charge of the tour, and his first mate and he did a most professional and entertaining job. It is my pleasure to recommend this tour to all ! Thank you.
