“Sweet as! ;)”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

That's a day trip which you'll never forget. It was amazing.
I had a really nice bus driver: Jackie. She was amazing, was funny and I had a lot of fun ;)

My highlight on this day trip was the sandboarding near the 90 miles beach. Awesome! You have heabs of time to board down the big dunes.

The Cape Reinga was, lucky us, not overcrowded, so we could enjoy the lovely place on the north of New Zealand!

On little point, which is not as good as the rest of the trip, are some brakes for food. There is one stop to much in this programme.

In total: Highly recommandable!! Especially when you get Jackie as the driver you'll fall in love with her ;-)

“The Cream Trip-Fantastic Day Trip”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

A great day out. The commentary throughout the day was very interesting as were all the big, little and in between rocks, islands and other sights.
We left Paihia and a little way out into the bay encountered dolphins. Several of the passengers (myself included) went swimming with the dolphins. A great experience.
After this we followed the original cream run route around the islands within the Bay of Islands. We stopped for lunch at Urupukapuka Island. Several walked up the hill to eat with the 180Degree view while others sat on the beach front to eat and others went walking and swimming.
After lunch we headed out to the Hole in the Rock (Motukokako Island). We went into a cave to see the rock formation and then back out and through the "hole in the rock". Awesome sights.
Finally we headed home after picking up some people from another boat who had to catch a bus back to Whangarei.
We finished our day at Russell where we spent a lovely evening at "Sally's Restaurant", and then caught the late ferry back to Paihia.

“Hole in the Rock dolphin loving”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Best swimming with dolphins ever! Had a decent amount of time with the dolphins, we swam alongside them for pretty much the whole time! You have to swim hard and sing loud to keep up with them so they want to play with you. The Hole in the Rock was good, and the stopover on Urupukapuka had a wonderful view. The crew were very friendly and we had a lot of fun. Wetsuits were provided and made the winter waters surprisingly bearable! BEST DAY EVER.

“Cream Trip- Fantastic!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

It was the perfect way to spend a beautiful day.
The tour took in all the best attractions in the Bay of Islands, and the guide's commentary was great. They adjusted the schedule so we could chase pods of dolphins and orcas, yet we still had plenty of time.

Highly recommended!

If you only have one day in the Bay of Islands, this is how you should spend it.

Great day out. Enjoyed the commentary and that they stopped long enough for everyone to take photos.
