Really cool trip didn’t get to go through the hole because the water was too rough but got to see it and also saw dolphins. The stop over on the island was cool however there food was lacking in offerings. As I’m pregnant there was a lot of seafood options which were a no no or deep fried / Sandwhich options which sadly were also risky. However everything else made it awesome so would recommend over all.

Fantastic experience, can’t recommend enough. Luke and his team thought of everything and we felt very well cared for. We had an awesome girls trip on the boat, swimming, snorkeling and paddle boarding. We also enjoyed hearing information about the area and part of our ticket even went towards a local native bird sanctuary. Very worthwhile experience

Great experience staff were welcoming and attentive to the needs of their passengers. The captain was great, his commentary was delivered with humor. I felt very safe as the captain would direct us as to where to sit what to do for our safety an comfort.

Booked this trip on my own while in the Bay of Islands. Great trip to see the Hole in the rock, and plenty of time to explore the islands. Boat was comfortable and the guides were really informative!

It was the best trip. Had everything. Great weather. Good commentary. Hole in the rock. And many dolphins
