Great tour would do it again well done
The tour was great and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
An absolutely impressing tour - the only disadvantage: due to big distances sometimes simply to much driving. But all the visits on the tour: just grandious! Will go back to some places one time, that is for sure.
All the reservations, connections and transports worked.
The places visited were nice and very interesting.
Such a great trip. Knowledgeable driver/guide. A lot sucked into one day.
Thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip - very well organised and our pilot Dan was extremely good and informative throughout. Would recommend this as a must for anybody wishing to see the wonderful landscape in its entirity of the Bay of Islands. Trip was nicely broken up by some fun features and a welcome cup of coffee!
This tour was awesome! The cruise was so well organized and the crew was very friendly. The scenery was so beautiful and the narration of the captain was fun and interesting. We saw so many dolphins and they are so much fun to watch. The sea cooperated and we were able to sail through the 'Hole in the Rock too . Ther was alot of bang for the buck.Thanks to all for a great time.
A must do!!! Amazing scenery and well worth the cost.
Fabulous! Each day was different and with a different company. However it was well organized and a lot of fun. I loved doing 3 days instead of just one so we could slow down and take in the sights in Pahia. We thought it was too much to do in just one day. 90 mile Beach and going to the light house in Cape Regina were the highlights for us.

What a fantastic day!
There were two in my party, myself and my wife. In the past we have taken bus tours where you literally stay with the same vehicle for the tour duration. Your approach of using whatever transport was available at the time it was required was new to us, and we found it marvelous. It was a genuine attempt to maximize the use of your resources.
All of your drivers were great. They were respectful, incredibly knowledgeable, had a good sense of humour and were always on time. Perhaps one day, we will return to New Zealand and use your facilities again. Until then we will recommend you to any of our friends who are planning a New Zealand holiday.
Regards and thanks for a memorable trip,
Chris and Anita Taylor.
Fantastic tour operator and had opportunity to see killer whales next to boat
This is definitely the way to see the Bay of Islands! This was one of the highlights of our trip. The helicopter company was on time and the pilot was very informative. Would highly recommend.
The best time ever..the crew and vessel were amazing..
Brilliant cruise. This was the best excursion trip we experienced. The cruise alone was extremely enjoyable and was easily accessed from the cruise shuttle bus. The hole in the rock wasn't passed through due to weather and sea conditions but the lady Captain reversed into the hole and gave us the full view and feel for natures creation. Well done driver, a brilliant piece of boat handling skills, I'll try to remember this before criticising lady drivers.
What a bonus we had though, there was a pod of local Okra killer whales in and around one of the bays we visited. They were very close and surfacing often as they were feeding on Rays in the shallow waters of the bay. This made for an unexpected once in a lifetime experience which will be remembered for years to come. Not guaranteed on the trip but you never know your luck!
Value for money, excellent, we saved 60 two of us on this trip through Viator compared to our cruise ship excursion.
Great experience. Very professional and knowledgeable tour guides and providers. Loved the special opportunity to see tons of Orcas! Lots of information. Worth every penny!
We only had 4 days and this tour was perfect. We saw and covered so much that we could not have if we did on our on in that time. The drivers, tour guides were amazing, organised and professional, but most of all fun! Accommodation was clean and the staff were lovely. I can't say enough good things about my three day tour in the beautiful Bay of Islands. I would highly recommend this tour if you don't have a lot of time, but want to make the most of the time you have.

The experience could not have been better. The crew took good care of us and we got to see dolphins, sea lions and travel through the tunnel that a boat could go through. The weather was perfect. If you are in this area you should do this.
Picked up at motel by friendly helpful staff, saw the dolphins in three different areas, bit to rough to go through the 'hole', dropped off at Russell and free trip back to mainland.
Awesome trip and well worth the relaxing tour, great staff and informative. Highly recommended.
Nice big catamaran with snacks and toilets on board. Good narration. Beautiful scenery. Well worth the money. Tip: do not wait to be picked up by a bus. Go into the shop and check in at the big white desk. Boat loads at the pier out in back.
