Great experience on our day trip. Staff was fantastic! Very laid back, mellow and fun. Lovely cruise, snorkel, hike and a stay at the beach followed by fresh caught fish and mussels. Absolutely would do it again!

This was an incredible way of getting out and seeing the Bay of Islands in all their glory. The staff on the boat are extremely friendly, and the skipper was a great guy! The accommodation was comfortable and clean, the only downside was the showers being turned off after a certain time, however, this was only a minor annoyance. Eating... More

Never a dull moment on this cruise. The crew were fantastic and catered for your every need. The food was good and we loved the views, even from your room! Would do this again if we ever return to NZ.

The cruise went above and beyond our expectations, definitely making it worth the money! There are so many amazing activities, with time to relax if/when that's what you wanted. The boat is well maintained with plenty of space, including a bar, pool table, games area, spacious cabins and much more. The crew were awesome from the moment we set off,... More

I stayed on the Rock for an evening with my tour group. There are lots of activities and the crew work hard to make sure everyone is entertained and gets involved. The boat is a bit hard to navigate once the lights go out so best to have a torch or phone to light the way. The evening kayak is... More

Hi Emma, Thanks for the review, we are replacing the two lights at the back of the boat (definitely the ones that were not performing the evening you joined us). Very happy to hear you enjoyed all the activities and I ensured the crew knew you thought they did great job too. They did tell me you mentioned nothing at... More
