Experience the very best of the Bay of Islands in one amazing trip!


  • Experience NZ's Highest Parasail!
  • Visit The Iconic Hole In The Rock
  • Explore Paradise Islands and Stunning Beaches

Join us and enjoy a Hole in the Rock and Island Tour plus New Zealand’s highest parasail at 1200’ft with this exciting Bay of Islands combo deal!


The Boat Tour: Step aboard our fast and comfortable 31’ high speed vessel for the first part of your adventure out into the Bay.

Soak up the amazing views and island atmosphere as we stop at some of the most spectacular bays, beaches and coastline you’ll ever see.

Once at the ‘Hole’ we’ll stop for plenty of photo time before lining up and sending the boat through. Next to the hole is the stunning Cathedral Cave and if conditions allow, we will drive all the way in to check out this amazing rock formation!

Next stop is a close-up view of Cape Brett and one of the most well-known lighthouses in New Zealand.

Along the way we often come across, dolphins, penguins, seals and a wide range of other marine and bird life.


Parasail: Experience the thrill of parasailing with us on NZ’s highest and longest parasail flight. Soar high in the sky at 1200’ from the boat for your special bird’s eye view of the Bay of Islands.

Parasail and hole in the rock

We had a great time. Boat trip to the rock was great. Nothing like the sea breeze in your face. We also motored into the sea cave. The larger boats wouldn’t have been able to do this. The parasail was fantastic. I’m sure we went higher and longer than the other parasail companies. Great friendly operators. Highly recommend
