We spent three days in the Paihia area. The second one on the Bay of Islands. The tour boat was packed with tourists, half orientals and half caucasians, so trying to get a spot to take a picture was a challenge. It was particularly bad at the front where a group of American tourists took possession and would not allow people trying to take a shot at "the Hole in the Rock". After several polite requests I decided to imitate them and just wedge myself between them thus earning many dirty looks and mumbles about "rude Canadians". Nevertheless, the excursion was worth every penny. We enjoyed the vistas and the company of dolphins. The captain was very obliging and his comments were not only informative but funny. I would love to go back!
