Boat tour in the Bay of Islands

Pahia is the starting point of the Bay of Islands tour. This bay counts 144 islands, of which we have visited two.
Motuarohia is the Island where Captain Cook landed first (in 1769). The English name of the Island is Roberton Island. It has a nice trail with a scenic view pont on top.
Then our boat tour led us to the Lighthouse and the „Hole in the Rock“, which is also the name of our tour boat.
Finally, on our second island we had the opportunity to try a SUP (my choice, 1st time ever) or to snorkle in the bay.
At the stop over at Russell, we left the boat and slandered through the village.
To get back Pahia we just hopped on a ferry which runs every 20 minutes (until 6 p.m.).
