What an amazing day we have had today! Saw so many dolphins, baby dolphins, seagulls and baby seagulls, all in their natural habitat. The trip was made so much better by having a captain/tour guide who clearly loved and was passionate about his job. Would recommend this trip to everyone!

Way above expectations. Skipper Taira and crew Lawrence, Callyann, and Juliana were all knowledgeable, and very helpful. We saw and got in the water with dolphins, learned so much of the Bay, and edged through the hole in the rock. I would wholeheartedly recommend this trip.

This place is magnificent. Great views, clean and nice. However on our visit some foolish lazy person drove on the walkway and parked their car near the light house. Same persons family also parked their motorcycle in front of the lighthouse. Not a very good look for other tourist. Many people couldn't take proper photos of the lighthouse as the... More

Took the cream trip via Fuller's Great sights Ferries. Set off at 9.30 am from Paihia, with Captain Billy & crew. As it was a Sunday there was no mail service to the surrounding islands. Several people went swimming with dolphins which you could also see from the boat. Some of the crew dived for fresh mussels which were sampled... More

For the first pet of the tour we were getting a disheartened because we hadn't seen any dolphins, however the skipper (Martin) had told us heaps of interesting information about the bay and it's islands. All of a sudden, after getting to a bay that was calm and beautiful we spotted two dolphins! We got out and swam for a... More

We booked into Fullers Hole in the Rock cruise and had a lovely day. We set off at 1.30 and went out to see some bays before heading to the Hole in the Rock. Our skipper Bronwen was very engaging and knowledgable about the area. She navigated the huge boat through the hole which was very exciting. Unfortunately we weren't... More

We decided this was a good way to get a feel for Bay of Islands given we only had a couple of days there. We took the morning trip that incorporates the hole in the rock and a stop on another island plus the promise of wildlife. We were picked up in Russell and were slightly concerned when we saw...

We booked the Cream trip of Fuller and were so lucky. The day started clowdy but the water was so calm!! Just after we left the captain told that a group of dolfins was seen. Including babies. On the spot it was a real treatment. Swimming and diving show by all the 8 or 9 dolfins. We watched them half... More

Fantastic awesome day around the Bay of Islands out of Paihia for us but Russell pick up also available. Firstly thanks to the crew Rachael, Amy and Adam but most of all to Captain Tammy who has been around the Bay of Islands for 20 + years but her knowledge and enduring enthusiasm made our trip very memorable.
