Piercy Island, regularly referred to just as "The Hole In The Rock", is situated off the north shoreline of the North Island of New Zealand. It is at the extremely northern tip of Cape Brett in the Bay of Islands. The island is all the more a stone, desolate just having gannets and other ocean winged animals to call it home. The island itself was named Piercy Island by Captain Cook out of appreciation for one of the Lords of the Admiralty - it is called Motukokako in the Maori dialect. The 210-foot (64 m) gap adrift level was made over hundreds of years by wind and waves making it a standout amongst the most normally lovely destinations in New Zealand. Being a well known visitor goal there are a huge number of visits offered and if the waters are quiet and the tide is correct the plane pontoons will go directly through the opening.
