Look through the glass and spot a variety of fish species, stingrays, crayfish, octopus and more. On the surface look out for penguins and sea birds. Keep an eye out for passing dolphins, orca and NZ fur seals.

Fast boat with glass bottom to Cathedral Cove and along to Coromandel Coast. Beautiful coastal scenery and an opportunity to snorkel (gear provided). Nice trip but water a bit cloudy for much viewing of fish.

Scenic cruise at Whitianga, was very nice, but too expensive.

Lovely trip around several bays. Chance to swim and snorkel but water cold and cloudy on the day. Good tour guide. Value for money.
