Loved the dolphins cruising along with us. Amazing scenery. Were lucky enough to go through the hole in the rock. Thought the stopover was a nice touch.

It was a perfect day, with beautiful weather and calm water, the 'Cream Trip' was interesting and informative, we stopped off for lunch in a lovely bay, went swimming in the warm water. We were lucky enough also to see some dolphins, including a mother and baby. A great way to see lots of places of interest, including the hole... More

We were a group of 5 adults, who had all been to the Bay of Islands, but going on the 'Dolphin Seeker' trip we were able to pay less than $100each to go on a boat and see a whole new dimension to the beautiful area. We saw a pod of dolphins and got to go through the Hole In... More

Say you find yourself lacking a private boat of your own... say you find yourself lacking the funds to charter a yacht to island jump in the Bay of Islands... no worries. Book the Cream Trip and you'll basically see it all. Initially, I was wary of a "one size fits all" tour like the Cream Trip. But, this really... More

A must do on your trip to Paihia, we caught an earlier ferry to Russel, which was included in our ticket price - you need to ask for this, and had lunch in Russel, beautiful place and a must visit, then out to the hole in the rock, a visit with the dolphins on the way magical and the hole... More

That's a day trip which you'll never forget. It was amazing. I had a really nice bus driver: Jackie. She was amazing, was funny and I had a lot of fun ;) My highlight on this day trip was the sandboarding near the 90 miles beach. Awesome! You have heabs of time to board down the big dunes. The Cape... More

A great day out. The commentary throughout the day was very interesting as were all the big, little and in between rocks, islands and other sights. We left Paihia and a little way out into the bay encountered dolphins. Several of the passengers (myself included) went swimming with the dolphins. A great experience. After this we followed the original cream... More

Best swimming with dolphins ever! Had a decent amount of time with the dolphins, we swam alongside them for pretty much the whole time! You have to swim hard and sing loud to keep up with them so they want to play with you. The Hole in the Rock was good, and the stopover on Urupukapuka had a wonderful view.... More

It was the perfect way to spend a beautiful day. The tour took in all the best attractions in the Bay of Islands, and the guide's commentary was great. They adjusted the schedule so we could chase pods of dolphins and orcas, yet we still had plenty of time. Highly recommended! If you only have one day in the Bay... More
