This great half day cruise is definitely worth every cent. The views and scenery were amazing to start and there was a lot of dolphins around! When we would spot the dolphins the captain would slow down the boat and try to stick around the dolphins so that we could see them. The staff on board were very friendly and the boat was clean and in great shape. The commentary about Bay of Islands, marine life, etc was very interesting and informative. We were able to cruise through the Hole in the Rock even though the sea was a bit choppy, so kudos to our Captain as well!
The stop at Otehei Bay was great as we were able to do some hikes, have our sandwiches, and enjoy a beer. I wish the stop could have been a bit longer to enjoy some more of the hiking trails.
On the way back you could get off and Russel on the way to Paihia and Fullers would provide a free public ferry ticket back. We were unable to do this due to time, but I have heard that Russell is totally worth the stop!
