Oh Paihai, how beautiful. Just a short trip from the drop off point of the Ship to get to the main town area and we were planning our day of adventure! A tour boat took us out to the Hole in the Rock, and we saw amazing fish life and birds, and some beautiful coastline. All in all a memorable... More

There are plenty of places to eat (some of them quite pricey!), ample parking, good toilet facilities, shops for souvenirs and more necessary items, and a sense of freedom. Trips to eg Cape Reinga (coach) and the Hole... More

We had a cruise out around the bay from Pahia. Bay of Islands should be on everyones list who is visiting the Northlands. Very pretty Harbour and a great market when we docked back to the mainland.

Loved the boat trip round the Bay of Islands. Beautiful harbour and beach. Glad we were staying in Keri Keri some way up the coast though!

Went out on the Harbour Cruise with Fullers cruises. The staff were great and very experienced and informative about the area. We encountered a pod of Dolphins as soon as we left Russell, it was one of my highlighhts of a great trip to the Bay of Islands. Thanks for a great day
