Bay of Islands Cruise - From Paihia and Russell - Overview

This cruise is ideal for people who do not need transport from Auckland and who want to see all the highlights of the magnificent Bay of Islands in one day. Do the original Cream Trip, visit the 'Hole in the Rock' and go ashore to explore one of the most beautiful Islands in the bay.
