Went on the Bay of Islands overnight cruise Ipipri and it was amazing. The rooms were clean bigger than we thought they would be and I had the best nights sleep. The dinner & breakfast was sooooo goood and there was a lot of food & really good quality & variety to choose from. The staff were very friendly and always eager to help. drinks not too expensive. Oh & they have a cheese platter on the first evening with drinks get there in time as the cheeses and the smoked fish etc are brilliant.

Went on a beautiful day in April with great weather, loads of dolphins, good company and great Captain! The staff got a little frazzled when the dolphin swim took place! Almost like they had never coordinated this before! Otherwise a great day! Not too long, not too short! We boated through the hole in the rock! Loved the lunch stop. Definitely go for a little hike up the hill for great views of the Bay, Islands and the mainland! Awesome!

Very pretty area.

However we chose the cream boat because it seemed bigger then realised our mistake. The yellow boat got closer to the dolphins. It got closer to shore on the islands. It went through the hole in the rock. (basically because it was narrower). We were left taking photos of that boat doing things we imagined we would be doing.

Asked later and everyone was promoting the cream boat. The yellow boat had far less people on it and it would be my recommendation .

We were undecided as to which trip to take but decided on the Cream Trip. What an amazing day! Large pods of dolphins following the catamaran, beautiful scenery, smooth seas, a very competent crew and skipper. The skipper expertly guided the vessel through the Hole in the Rock which required great skill. My husband thoroughly enjoyed boom netting with other adventurous passengers. The commentary was excellent and it was the best value for money excursion we have every had. Worth every cent.

The Cream Trip is one of the best excursions my husband and I have ever done. Initially it may seem expensive but it is well worthwhile. It is well organised from the beginning and the crew are keen that everyone enjoys themselves. I chose to 'Swim with the Dolphins' It was an experience of a lifetime. The ride in the boom net came a close second!
The islands are beautiful and the commentary made the trip so interesting. There is so much to see and there is never a dull moment. At the end of the day I wished the trip was just beginning.
