Best of the Bay Supercruise: Original Cream Trip
From US$90.78
Low Price Guarantee
Overview
Experience the Bay of Islands on a catamaran cruise from Paihia or Russell, with indoor and outdoor seating to ensure a comfortable trip in any weather. Watch for whales, seals, and dolphins as you navigate the islands. Following the centuries-old tradition of delivering supplies to remote islands (called a “cream trip”), you pass Hole in the Rock, stop to explore one of the islands, and optionally swim with dolphins.
What to Expect
Make your way to the wharf in Paihia or Russell, board your multilevel catamaran, and then set a course for Cape Brett, on the far eastern edge of the Bay of Islands. Enjoy the sea breeze from the outdoor sundeck or head inside to the enclosed cabins, where drinks and snacks are available for purchase. Form any seat, watch for seals, dolphins, and whales as you cruise.
Upon arrival at Cape Brett, you have an exciting opportunity to swim in dolphin habitat, if conditions permit, using a wetsuit and snorkeling gear to see beneath the surface (own expense).
Back on board the boat, you make a series of stops to deliver supplies to the islands, pausing at one for free time to walk, swim, or just relax on the beach.
After a full day on the water, your Bay of Islands cruise concludes at your original departure point.

It is only choppy if it is a windy day. You will have to play it by ear.
