Meet your guide at the Maritime Building in Paihia or The Strand Wharf in Russell for your 3 hour Bay of Islands cruise. High-speed catamaran will whisk you away to Motu Kokako — also known as Piercy Island — and expertly navigate its way through the famous Hole in the Rock conditions permitting, located at the northern tip of Cape Brett.
Search the waters for an array of seabirds and marine life. Watch out for common and bottlenose dolphins, seals, penguins and even a whale or two. Learn about the history of the islands, especially the indigenous Maori and early European settlers, as you cruise through the inner Islands of the Bay.
Hop off in Russell or Paihia for more exploring after your cruise and use your complimentary ferry ticket to get back.
