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.

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.

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.

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.

Brilliant. Saw lots of dolphins. Actually cruised through hole in rock. Also saw seals and blue penguins. Scenery was beautiful. The island we stopped off was beautiful with good walks. They also dropped us off in Russell and gave us free ferry tickets to Paihia.
