Bay of Islands Day Tour & Hole in the Rock Dolphin Cruise ex Auckland Return (ICAPA) - 0745- 2010

Discover the beautiful Bay of Islands on a full-day tour, including an afternoon cruise on its sheltered waters.

Highlights:
    Return bus travel from Auckland to Paihia
    Dolphin cruise to Cape Brett
    Photo opportunities

Departing central Auckland, your tour will take you across the Harbour Bridge and north through scenic New Zealand countryside to the seaside township of Paihia in the Bay of Islands. This historic and strikingly beautiful region is known as the birthplace of New Zealand.
In Paihia, the crew of the Fullers GreatSights 'Dolphin Seeker' will welcome you on board. This purpose-built catamaran is licensed by the Department of Conservation for dolphin and whale encounters.
Set off on a Bay of Islands cruise, enjoying stunning views of the region's many islands as you head out to the Cape Brett Lighthouse and through the famous Hole in the Rock (conditions permitting). Throughout your cruise your skipper will keep an eye out for dolphins and other marine life, and where possible get up close to these playful creatures. After docking back at the pier in Paihia, you'll be met by your driver for the return trip to Auckland by coach.
