Mack Attack - Hole in the Rock Fast Boat Ex Paihia

Experience the thrill and exhilaration of Mack Attack! The Bay of Islands fastest boat to the Hole in the Rock!

Exploring the inner and outer Islands of the Bay and up to enjoy the pristine scenery of Cape Brett, we cruise through the Hole in the Rock and explore deep into Cathedral Cave.

With plenty of informative commentary and stops to observe the abundant wildlife along the way (including Dolphins if we're lucky), the Mack Attack offers the perfect balance of exploration and exhilaration - a real kiwi must do on your visit to Paihia and the Bay of Islands.

Mack Attack

Our trip to the hole-in-the rock was excellent. We had a beautiful day and the scenery was superb. We went through the hole in the rock twice and stopped to watch an enormous school of fish. The staff were very professional. I thoroughly recommend this trip.
