Take to the water and see the best of the Bay of Islands with this half-day scenic catamaran cruise. Departing from Paihia or Russell you journey out amongst the islands, sail past pretty bays, visit famous Hole in the Rock and keep an eye out for dolphins along the way; they are often spotted on this trip. The last stop on the cruise is at Otehei Bay on Urupukapuka Island, where you get off the boat for around 1.5 hours. A short nature tour is included and you also have time to enjoy lunch and have a paddle or swim at this scenic spot before returning to Russell/Paihia. The whole tour is accompanied with commentary about the interesting culture and environment of the Bay.
