This was really an amazing trip. The weather was perfect and the water very calm. We saw a large pod of common dolphins. We managed to get our vessel right through the hole in the rock. It’s a must do item if in Paihia.

We did the morning cruise out to the hole in the rock. The captain was most informative, telling us about the various islands as we slowed to look at them. We were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins as we began our cruise,...More
