Great trip, despite the weather, which prevented us from swimming with the dolphins although we did get to see them. Beautiful scenery and really well-informed crew. Fantastic way to see the Bay of Islands.Reviewed by: Sally R, April 2013
The Cream Trip was the only experience we booked ahead of our arrival in New Zealand. We had high expectations and were not disappointed. Fantastic commentary from the (female) skipper. Lots of laughs - not intrusive, and very interesting. We loved our lunch time stop on the island: lots of options, and we thought our fish and chips were the best we've had in ages. I am prone to sea sickness and had no problems on this well sized vessel - not too big, but spacious, light, smooth and everyone had a good view. Being on the water and getting out onto the bay to see all the islands will remain one of my favourite holiday memories. I would do it again!Reviewed by: Jeffrey J, March 2013

This was an absolutely brilliant day out. Unfortunately we were not able to swim with the dolphins because the pod we found had a wee baby, despite this, this was the best viewing of dolphins we have ever done. The scenery is amazing and the (female!!!) captain was really knowledgable, fun loving, skilled at her trade and is really passionate about the environment and her home town. The island stop over was very relaxing. A must do trip....Reviewed by: The Birds, February 2013
Our first day in New Zealand with an early to rise for our drive to meat the cruise at Paihia. The day and weather was on our side until the arrival at the Hole in the Rock as it was too rough to venture through, got plenty of good photos with the different conditions in the bay. Hoping from island to island brought a different view around each turn. In all the day was a day to remember as the dolphins came to visit the boat on the homeward trek to Paihia wharf. To top our day off my wife and I decided to stay a while for some dinner at the Paihia wharf for some of the local seafood.Reviewed by: Sauly, Australia, March 2013
