What you can expect

This is the most popular scenic cruise's in the Bay of Islands, and for good reason! Board your cruise in Paihia or Russell and take in the stunning views as we glide out through the islands and along the Rakaumangamanga Peninsula to Cape Brett, where a historic lighthouse keeps watch over and Piercy Island/Motukokako, or as it is popularly known the ‘Hole in the Rock’.

Keep a sharp lookout for Dolphins and Whales that populate and migrate through the Bay of Islands, excluding Bottlenose Dolphins. You will also have the chance to visit Urupukapuka Island.

According to Maori legend, local warriors used to paddle through the Hole in the Rock in their waka (canoes)

Dolphin Seeker has indoor and outdoor seating available, and the largest outdoor viewing decks in the Bay of Islands to take in the stunning scenery as your guide provides a comprehensive commentary on the ecology, history, and scenery of the Bay of Islands, The Birthplace of a Nation.

Choose to bring your own food, or there is hot and cold food available to buy on board.
