The Hole in the Rock Cruise was close to fantastic - we saw many dolphins near the boat, and the stopover at the island was great - do hike up the lookout for magnificent views; commentary was great as well.
Explore the beautiful Bay of Islands by boat, see pods of dolphins, ride through the Hole in the Rock (hopefully) and visit an amazing island on the way back that could be in any tropical paradise in the world.

The bonus uncontrollable aspects that added icing and cherry to this seabound tour were the up-close sightings of leaping dolphins [oooh, gentle applause], sun-lounging seals [awww] and fantastic weather.
We had a wonderful trip, being able to see dolphins up close, fairy penguins far away, go through the Hole in the Rock, and get a wonderful narrative of the landscape and history as we went.

... feel comfortable on the water and went the extra mile (literally) to ensure we had the best encounter with Blue Penguins, Hammerhead Sharks, Blue Sharks, Whale, Fur Seals and swimming with Common Dolphins.
Thankfully, a day I'd been dreaming about since I was about 2 came true today!! Fantastic day, brilliant weather and we were lucky enough to encounter a pod about 100 dolphins strong!

And the marine life was amazing, we saw lots of fish, a sting ray, a school of squid and a pod of dolphins who stayed around to play with us for an hour!
But the highlight of the trip was when we caught up with a pod of dolphins and were given the opportunity to get in the water and swim with them which was so amazing!
