Auckland or Paihia, Bay of Islands
It was a long bus trip from Auckland to Opua but well worth it. The boat and its crew did a great job despite some equipment problems. The main improvement they might make would be to add a bit of entertainment for the evening session (even a movie would do). Also, the boat returned to Opua at about 10.00 am but the bus didn't leave Paihia until 4.30 pm so perhaps the tour should be expanded to include a visit to some other nearby attraction (e.g. Russell or the Waitangi site).
