Tour description provided by Viator

Join us for the most popular cruise in the Bay of Islands - the Hole in the Rock cruise. Climb aboard a catamaran before venturing out to Cape Brett Lighthouse and the famous Hole in the Rock on Motukokako Island.
Join us on this tour from Auckland to escape the city and experience one of the best things to do in New Zealand's North Island. Soak up the views as you head north over the Auckland Harbour Bridge into the rural and coastal roads en route to the Bay of Islands. Upon arrival in the Bay, you'll have the chance to learn about Māori culture in New Zealand at the Waitangi Treaty House and grounds, visit a traditional marae (Māori meeting house) and see a waka (war canoe). The adventure continues by sea as you climb aboard a sightseeing cruise and journey through the sheltered waters of the Bay of Islands. Keep your eyes peeled for a variety of wildlife including whales, seals, dolphins, penguins and other marine life. Cruise past the remote Cape Brett lighthouse before arriving at the Hole in the Rock where you'll have the chance to admire the natural landmark as your skipper navigates through the narrow space (weather and ocean conditions permitting). After an incredible Bay of Islands cruise, your bus will take you back to your hotel in Auckland.
