What people are saying about Paihia
This trip more than met our expectations. Very knowledgeable and caring staff. The trip never seemed rushed, even when watching the dolphins. The expertise of the captain in going through the hole in the Rock was excellent. Highly recommended and great value for money trip.
My partner and I had a great day out on this tour. Lin was a great guide, relaxed and made everyone feel comfortable. He was really knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife we encountered. Bonus that we saw both penguins and dolphins throughout the day. The stops at the two islands was a perfect addition to the tours around the islands. This tour is a beautiful way to see the Bay of Islands. Don't miss it!!
The cruise with Adam and Blue has been simply wonderful. A friend who had done it a couple of weeks ago had recommended it very warmly because the boat was small, the approach to nature respectful, and the people extremely nice. The group (about 15 people) was nice, Adam and Blue are simply wonderful people who really love what they are doing. Their philosophy is: if we see dolphins we are going to stop to observe them, but we are not going to chase them. And dolphins we did meet. And we stopped. And observed them. And they played around our boat for about 15 minutes. We visited two islands, both astoundingly beautiful. On the second we stopped for a couple of hours, paddle boarding and snorkeling (they provide all the equipment), and it was heaven. We were the only people on the island, so you could hear cicadas and the sea. The rest was silence. Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful. Our daughter and I are telling people this was one of the most beautiful day in our lives. Tks Adam & Blue

This was a wonderful trip. The skipper has the flexibility of shifting the order of the day to match things like dolphin sightings. She was very informative and welcoming. Her crew was great as well. We didn't get to swim with the dolphins only because the only pod we kept seeing had babies in it. We did get to set quite a bit of activity. We would highly recommend this trip
