    Hole in the Rock Cruise with Island Stopover
    See some of the Bay of Island’s most scenic highlights on a four-hour cruise around its sheltered waters. Travel along the Cape Brett Peninsula to the historic lighthouse at its end and see the famous Hole in the Rock. If conditions permit, we will cruise right through the hole! You will also spend some time on the island of the day – we will choose the best of the bunch for you to explore, depending on the conditions. Relax on the beach or stroll around the island to drink in the views of this breath-taking region.

Your guide will then escort you around the set, showing the intricate detailing, pointing out the most famous locations and explaining how the movie magic was made. You will be fully guided around the 12 acre set; past Hobbit Holes™, the Mill and into the world-famous Green Dragon™ Inn, where you will be presented with a complimentary, exclusive Hobbit™ Southfarthing™ beverage to conclude your own Middle-earth™ adventure.
