The only authentic "Cream Trip". Fullers Bay of Islands have been delivering mail and supplies to island residents, exclusively for over 100 years. See idyllic sandy bays and homes up close as you truly explore life in the Bay.

Great views from everywhere on the modern cruising catamaran as you are escorted around the bay in comfort and safety. Crew share their local history and ecology. We often see a variety of marine wildlife including whales, seals, dolphins, penguins, and other sea and bird life as you travel out to the "Hole of the Rock" at Cape Brett.

If the conditions are right, customers can simply pay NZ$30 extra on board to swim with a pod of dolphins! Hot showers, wetsuits and snorkel gear are all provided onboard the vessel.

At lunchtime take a scenic walk on one of the tracks , relax on the beach or go for a swim

This was the best day we spent in the bay of Islands . The staff were very good and helpful and plenty of information . The dolphin swim and dolphin watching were highlights

Reviewed by: Linda P, March 2014

This was amazing. The dolphin watching and seeing the new babies. Watching other people do the net surfing. Wow. We had been on this trip about 10 years ago and much has changed, for the better. Our friends had not done this before and they were thrilled. Thanks for a great time,
