We hired one ski each for the 3 hour hole in the rock tour. The water was so flat at 8am in the morning we managed to shoot through the water at 91km per hour which was a huge buzz. The hole in the rock was great, and the time spent visiting the cafe was also fun for a drink... More

We booked a 3hr Ride Tango Jet Skis from Paihia and went out to the Hole in the Rock at Cape Brett, visiting Islands on the way out and back. Joff our guide was great, good balance of local history, showing natural attractions and some time to play on the Jet Ski... an awesome little adventure 👍👍

I absolutely loved this tour! It was my first time on a jet ski and they made the experience really fun with clear instruction and an informative guide. It's a great way to see the Bay of Islands up close. We had a perfect day; it was sunny and warm. I do not think I would have enjoyed being out... More

Great day, we took the hour tour. Other people on the tour were very slow and we had to keep stopping and waiting. However because of this we got an extra half hour out on the water. The guide was great, he was very understanding. Only down side is we were over charged by $20 when we paid (we were... More

It was a great 2 1/2 hour trip, with our guide very knowledgeable on the places we visited. With a bit of humor included, it made it a very memorable trip and we would definitely do it again.
