From Paihia or Russell: Hole in the Rock Dolphin Cruise
- Duration options: 3 - 4 hours
- Optional audio guide
Crew were excellent. Very Profesional and super friendly, great local knowledge. We were lucky enough to see a huge pod of dolphins. The boat was very clean and well looked after. Skipper was amazing, he made shooting through the hole in the rock look so easy. Great skill and confidence. Felt very safe on board. Three in our party including our 5 year old grand daughter. Highly recommend this trip. 5 stars... well done guys.
Everything was amazing. I’ve got everything what I expected from this trip. Even when we saw the dolphins we stopped for around 30 mins so we could look close enough at them and make some photos/videos. The trip took around 7 hours (as it was promised) and I didn’t get bored for a second. The guide was talking clearly and what’s the most important it was interesting to listen to him. Higly recommend.
My family did the two hour evening cruise, absolutely loved it. My son chose this activity for his 7th birthday and he really enjoyed jumping in the ocean, watching how a sail ship operates etc. My five year old also enjoyed herself. Husband and I definitely rated it and are keen to do this again next summer. The captain is awesome, a great host, knowledgeable, friendly and approachable.
Awesome hosts/sailors Luke & Rachel & awesome company. Really enjoyed the tour/cruise. Got to have a swim as well. They know their stuff & knowledgeable about the area so you get great insights throughout. Would definitely recommend & definitely book them again if we come back up north.
May be one of the cheaper tours around but absolutely amazing, we saw some of the bigger tours go by but they didn't get to stop and play in the water like we did. I would definitely do it again, our kids loved it too (10 & 12)
