What a fantastic way to spend the best part of 2 days. We were greeted on the wharf by Nathan, and then shortly after, johnny turned up and got us over to The Rock to start the trip. Once everyone was on board, we cast off, and headed out into the bay to spend the night. Fishing lines got set almost immediately with the shooting of the plastic duck quickly following.
Once we arrived at our anchorage for the night, fishing rods were broken out, and although only one person caught a fish, fun was had by all. Dinner quickly followed, with night kayaking shortly after, followed by a few hardy souls (myself and one of the crew whose name I promptly forgot) jumping into the rather chilly water for a couple of laps around the boat.
Next morning, woke up to the engines firing up, and heading out from our anchorage for breakfast and a short hike, followed by kayaking and snorkeling, then back to the boat for lunch and the cruise back to paihia.
Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to see the bay of islands. (Bring a camera. You'll probably regret it if you dont)
