“Always great to visit Paihia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

Paihia is very pretty and so is the harbour with Russell on the eastern side of the bay. I have visited this town many times and used to live there

“Trip around the bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

We went on a Dolphin watching boat, well worthwhile, we saw several pods of Dolphins, several sharks and some seal. The Dolphins followed the boat and had youngsters with them. A stop off in Russell topped off the day, pleasant walks, good times.

“Nice setting against the Bay of Islands”

We enjoyed walking on the pier and the shops on the boardwalk. We used the harbour for our trip to Russell and back. The Info kiosk is very handy too.

“Little and lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

Just what you would hope to find in such a delicate place as the Bay of Islands with the jetty only large enough for the local ferry to Russell and the whale-watching boats. The weekly cruise ships drop anchor out in the Bay and their passengers are brought ashore in a flotilla of smaller craft. On a calm day with a blue sky, idyllic
