Hole In The Rock Cruise


From Paihia in the Bay of Islands, you will board the Great Sight purpose built Catamaran – Dolphin Seeker.  This vessel is licenced by New Zealand’s Department of Conservation to allow both dolphin and Whale Viewing.  Enjoy the large outdoor viewing decks while cruising past many of the islands in the Bay.  There are 144 islands in total.

Keep an eye open for a wide range of sealife including both common and bottlenose dolphins and whales. The experienced skippers will get you up close to the action on and in the water.

The cruise will take you past the Cape Brett Lighthouse to the famous Hole in the Rock. The Rock walls tower above you and conditions permitting, your captain will steer you through the narrow hole and around the island before heading back to Paihia.

This can be booked as an optional activity on the following tours:
