Price : From $232

Duration: 12 hours

Starting in Auckland, travel north on one of GreatSights' comfortable and air conditioned deluxe coaches. Sit back, relax and enjoy the informative commentary as you cross the iconic Harbour Bridge and soak up New Zealand's spectacular scenery of rural countryside and sub-tropical bush as you approach the Bay of Islands.

After arriving in Paihia, you'll board the Dolphin Seeker, our purpose built catamaran licensed by the Department of Conservation for dolphin and whale viewing. Enjoy the large outdoor viewing decks as we cruise past the islands of the Bay. Keep a look out for common and bottlenose dolphins, whales and other marine life as our experienced local skippers get you up close to the action.

Cruise past the Cape Brett Lighthouse, before arriving at the majestic Hole in the Rock. Admire the rock walls towering above you as the skipper navigates right through the narrow space (conditions permitting) before heading back into the inner islands of the Bay.

Useful tip: Please note this tour operates on Christmas Day (25 December) and Waitangi Day (6 February) but does not include the visit to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds on these holidays.
