We did the long tour, out to the hole in the rock. We were pretty fortunate because it was a very misty morning but it lifted to unveil a BEAUTIFUL day! Fully recommend the long trip, good chat, great service and pure fun. Do it!!!

We could only take up the one hour tour due to time constraints but the weather was perfect to make the tour all the more enjoyable... unfortunately i forgot to take the photos from the guides in the end. All in all money well spent!!

We hired one ski each for the 3 hour hole in the rock tour. The water was so flat at 8am in the morning we managed to shoot through the water at 91km per hour which was a huge buzz. The hole in the rock was great, and the time spent visiting the cafe was also fun for a drink... More

We booked a 3hr Ride Tango Jet Skis from Paihia and went out to the Hole in the Rock at Cape Brett, visiting Islands on the way out and back. Joff our guide was great, good balance of local history, showing natural attractions and some time to play on the Jet Ski... an awesome little adventure 👍👍

I absolutely loved this tour! It was my first time on a jet ski and they made the experience really fun with clear instruction and an informative guide. It's a great way to see the Bay of Islands up close. We had a perfect day; it was sunny and warm. I do not think I would have enjoyed being out... More
