  • Fabulous day but frustrating regarding photo opportunities. My wife travels worldwide to photograph wildlife and to be unable to do so on this trip due to the inconsideration of other passengers was disappointing for her. Perhaps consideration could be given to being more "authoritarian" regarding moving aside once you have your shot of, say, dolphins along side the boat to allow someone else access to the site to get their "shot". My wife also noted that the dolphins only approached her when she was alone and quiet - this pod appeared to actively swim away from noise. Having said that, I am sure not all pods are the same. 4

  • What a fantastic trip!! From the coach pick-up from our hotel in Auckland to our drop-off, everything was superbly organised. Once on the boat, the staff were extremely friendly and efficient and went out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The food was lovely and loads of it. The boat was so comfortable and spacious and the actual trip around the Bay of Islands was stunning and we were lucky enough to see some dolphins. The only two comments I would make, and they are not a criticism is that it's not really suitable for young children. We had a toddler on our trip and he was adorable but we were forever worried about his safety - please, make it adults only. Secondly, please think about extending the cruise to two nights, we felt we were just settling in when we had to leave - most of the other guests felt the same and would love to do a 2 or 3 night trip. We will definately recommend this trip to anyone we know travelling to New Zealand - excellent!! 5

  • Although the main purpose of this excursion was achieved (ie to see and travel throught the "Hole in the Rock" at NZ's Bay of Isles, I was a little disappointed in the lack of commentary on board during a very lengthy boat trip to and from the site. Even with the time lost due to an onboard medical emergency, I feel there were many lost opportunities to fill a lot of empty moments with commentary about the various islands passed or even some of the local history, folk and fact, about the region. 3

Very sad. Could never recommend this to anyone until the food issues are dealt with. NZ has a great reputation for wonderful food - except for this trip. Apart from that, all good. When we did complain to the manager in Paihia we received some cash back and apologies - which were very much appreciated. This attitude is brilliant! 3

  • Pickup from the motel was a good start, and the driver,Wally, gave a good commentary throughout. The mid morning stop at Taipa gave everyone an oppurtunity to top up on food etc. Although we a Kiwis, the trip was informative and a good insight into the top half of Northland. There was no pressure to do any of the activities and the fact that Wally got out and did things like sandboarding showed he was more than a driver. Admittedly, it was a long day and even Wally was tiring towards the end. Overall, an excellent valued trip well worth the money. If I drove my own car, I would not have experienced all that we did. Well done, I would recoomend the trip to anybody who hasnt been to the Cape 5

On arriving later that afternoon in Pahia called to Fullers office to what trip we were likely to be taking, were told there were now 14 booked so would probably still go on Cream trip. We gave the name of the motel we were staying at and would be picked up next day at 8.45. After waiting till 9.10 I rang your 0800 number to be told they had gone to another motel to pick us up. As I had given my cell phone number would have thought someone would have rung that. However after the confusion we were picked up and the boat was held back for us and we had a very enjoyable day. 4
