What You Can Expect
You will then pass through the famous Cape Brett "Hole in the Rock" at Motukokako Island and on to view the majestic Grand Cathedral Cave.
The crew share with you local history and ecology and you will often see a variety of marine wildlife including Whales, Seals, Dolphins, Penguins, and other sea and bird life.
You'll visit one of the bay's most beautiful islands where you can swim and snorkel or relax on the beach and take in the magic of the island. Choose to stay on the island longer with an optional extension to return at 4:30pm or 5:30pm (NZ$10, payable direct).
Please note, during the winter months (June to October 19), the afternoon departure is approximately 3 hours in duration, returning one hour earlier to Russell and Paihia and does not include a stopover on Urupukapuka Island.
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
Most beautiful sceneries ever.
