Hole in the Rock Cruise

DETAILS

  • 3
    hrs Estimate Duration

Cruise through the Bay of Islands, a collection of nearly 150 islands revered for their pristine beaches and dramatic natural beauty. Captain James Cook named the islands during his 1769 exploration of the area and the landscape has changed little since then.


The blanketing forests are still impossibly lush and the turquoise waters remain among the world’s most gorgeous. As you sail on a sleek catamaran past one emerald island after another, you will see landmarks such as the Cape Brett Lighthouse and the famed Hole in the Rock. The constant pounding of the sea carved the iconic hole out of the craggy rock at the end of Motukokako Island, and it is quite the sight.


You will also enjoy a front-row seat to view the Grand Cathedral Cave, a large natural cavern in the island’s coastal cliff. Along the way, the guide will elaborate of the history of the Bay of Islands and the culture of the founding Maoris.
