We did the hole in the rock cruise rock. With a (according to the sales) 95% chance on seeing dolphins. Unfortunately we did not see any, but we were feeling confident since we had a couple of days in the area. When we bought the tickets we asked the sales guy what happens if we don't see dolphins, he said:"... More

We had a very enjoyable afternoon on the Hole in the Rock ride - but if the wind is unfavourable they don't do it - also in bad weather it would be a long time to be sea sick. We were lucky - we went through - we stopped on Urupukapuka for an enjoyable walk and sight see. Boat was... More

I loved the boat ride, it was wonderful, the captain's commentary was entertaining and informative and we did see dolphins, including a little baby!!! I also thought the lunch was really great, would recommend. However, the bus ride was terrible. I was the only Australian on the bus and there were almost constant jokes at my and my country's expense.... More

This a great way to see so much at the top end of NZ. Firstly kia ora Willy. We had a great driver 'Willy' who kept us entertained on the longer sections of driving. Unfortunately our bus became bogged after leaving the sandboarding and Willy handled it well. Not once did he loose his cool even with a bus load... More

The bloke at reception was a bit grumpy but helpful enough. The Web site wasn't - it could have explained that to snorkel you need your own gear and it should have explained how the walk & pick-up worked. Despite the less than perfect start, the boys on the boat- captain Nick & bird man Adam really helped make it... More

We did the Island Adventurer trip which would normally be around a 2 hour round trip. Hwever, we opted to take the 8.30am trip and spent the day on Urupukapuka Island catching the 4.40pm boat back to Paihia. While the actual Island Adventurer trip was very good (plenty of facts about history of islands visited, birdlife etc), this trip does... More

This day tour was amazing. The 90 mile beach is simply breathtaking and the memory of our drive along it will stay with me for ever. Cape Reinga was also a great experience seeing the meeting of the sees and the lone tree. On the way home it was entertaining the younger element on the coach sand boarding which looked... More
