Definitely worth it.would do it again in a heartbeat.
Unfortunately we went on this trip on a misty rainy day. Fullers offered us a full refund if we didn't want to go du to the bad weather or a shorter trip at a reduced cost. We decided to go and we were glad we did, still an enjoyable trip and we saw lots of Dolphins swimming up close to the boat, we couldn't go to the Hole in the Rock due to rough seas but we enjoyed the day despite the weather.
The coach driver was great a really nice friendly guy good commentary the only thing was the food stop was a bit of a scramble and not well set out, the food was mediocre. Of our four meals two persons fish was soggy and undercooked.
Most beautiful sceneries ever.
Great family day out. The crew really made a big effort for the children, even giving them fake pirate tattoos. From the views to the food and private beach swimming this is definetly a bay of islands must do. Thank you to all the crew
Full on day with spectacular weather. Saw dolphins up close but had a calf so unable to swim with them. Boom netting was a great alternative! Lunch on island was terrific, had a walk, climbed the hill and admired the views. Skipper very knowledgable and we went through the hole the in rock, perfect
This was the first time my husband and myself have ever been in a helicopter. It was such an amazing feeling. We could have not picked a better place or time of day to do it. It was just wonderful. We are definatly hooked.
Absolutely fantastic trip. Firstly we were allowed, at no extra cost to travel to Russell on the other side of the Bay and spend a few hours looking round the lovely little town. Then with no hassle we bordered our trip and had a great time. Staff were excellent and very informative telling us about the dolphins etc.
We had a lovely stop on the local island of Urupukapuka, stunning. If you have time take thi strip worth every penny
good trip, good number of activities, comfortable, friendly and professional staff , good information of about the sites and places,
we pre booked overseas and the trip was all we had hoped for, the weather was kind, the dolphin's played, we swam and even ate fresh muscles, your crew were amazing. The boat catered for everyone able and not so able the captain kept everyone laughing and well informed, We and everyone else had a day to remember .
thankyou all very much . The Menzies family 5/2/14
Great trip! Lovely hosts and great boat. very clean. good info and cool trip. Bay of Islands well worth the visit and best way is by cruise.
Enjoyed the cruise and would recommend it. Only thing I would say would be that you have to be fit to walk up the steep hill the cruise drops you off at. Its a bit more than a 5 min walk as originally told by the boat driver. Other than that, it was great and got to see some dolphins really up close.
We really enjoyed the tour - the weather was perfect, the scenery beautiful, water crystal clear and the sea life amazing - so many fish! Dolphins surfed behind the catamaran and we managed to get this on video. The boat captain who also acted as the tour guide was very knowledgeable and even went out of his way to give a young passenger a special treat by finding his dad on a local fishing charter boat. Well done.
Only one improvement - for the cost we thought a light lunch could have been provided.
We decided to disembark at Russell and walked up Flagstaff Hill to enjoy the magnificent view then ate a wonderful lunch of sensational NZ seafood including some delightful oysters, calamari and fresh snapper at the Swordfish Club (10/10).
Overall a very beautiful part of New Zealand - we are looking forward to a return holiday.
Great trip. Weather wasn't fantastic but that can't be helped
