      There are many places to stay in the small community of Paihia and the Kingsgate is a fine choice. It is on the main road next to the water, has lovely big rooms, an outdoor swimming pool, and best of all free breakfast. Not just continental breakfast, the whole shibang of a breakfast with meats, eggs, toast, cereal, fruit, juice, coffee, etc...

      The rooms offer the anonymous feel of motel rooms anywhere and so once inside you can forget where the room is actually located, this is a plus or minus depending on your preference.

      Would recommend it for those needing or desiring a quiet, clean, spacious room with electrical outlets located in the right places.

      ... life and habits of bottle nosed Dolphins said they could be moody just like humans and today they were doing their own thing and not performing much for us. So it was hard to get an action photo. We stopped for nearly an hour on one of the islands, called Urupukapuka, and climbed to a high spot for lovely views. On the way back we chose to be dropped off at the town of Russell and were given a ticket to get back to Paihia ( not far across the bay) by high speed ferry. That was ...

      ... Second day we took a boat trip to the famous hole in the rock and were lucky enough to see the wild dolphins playing round our boat. Tempting as it was to jump in and join them, the Pacific at this time of year is not the place you want to be!We also took a walk out to a nice waterfall, spent a lot of time on the beach taking jumpers on and off whilst the weather made up its mind what to do, and I got a lovely (slightly unexpected) visit from Laura on her day off from the farm!

      ... Then of course it was back to the strenuous grind of looking at stuff. You can see the pics of Cape Reinga below. It was simply stunning. I will confess there was a part of me which wondered at traveling for 4hrs (and getting up at 6-something) to see a lighthouse. How good can it be i scoffed? Pretty damn good tbh. It was stunning. It's the point where the Tasman Sea (locally known as the Ditch) meets the Pacific Ocean and ...

      ... but it was a lot of fun, even with getting a lot of sand on ourselves.

      Our morning was very busy as we also had it in our plans to visit Cape Reinga, the lighthouse at the very tip of New Zealand's northern peninsula. After getting out of the bus, we proceeded down a 15 minute long path with beautiful views and gorgeous vistas. Cape Reinga marks where the Tasman Sea in the east meets the Pacific Ocean in the west ...

      The original plan had been Swimming with Dolphins combined with sailing on Lion New Zealand ( e-experiences/bay-of-islands-dolphin-sa il-combo/) but Lion had finished it’s Bay of islands season. So we changed it to just swimming ( e-experiences/swim-with-dolphins/) Monday afternoon and added the Discover the Bay cruise ...
