Got to experience this house boat with a tour company we travelled New Zealand with, as it was part of our tour. What a wonderful time we had. We arrived at the dock and were greeted to be tendered to the boat. We had a room on the second floor in which the beds were very comfy. Once we were settled we then voluntarily participated in numerous activities for the next 20 hours. Paintball off the back of the boat, fishing for snapper, sea kayaking, star gazing, playing pool, a delicious BBQ, snorkelling, coffee, breakfast, lunch, swimming, island climbing, land games, historical stories.
The crew were fun, knowledgeable, safety conscience, learned all our names and likes very quickly, encouraging, and easy going.
We returned the next day back to the dock after a great sleep, sunrise, and lots of fun.
One of the best days of our tour and in New Zealand.

This is the only houseboat I have been on where it is possible to have a game of pool. Slow, seductive and charming, and that was just the skipper Rowan! Fantastic, fun and the best value for money of any trip you can take in the Bay of Islands. A highlight for us was the night kayaking, but fishing, sushi, a trip to Moturaohia/Roberton island...there was so much packed into the 22 hours yet the whole experience was fantastically relaxing. A big thank you to the crew for looking after our every need. Take note though - any false calls of "Oh look - dolphins" will see you walkng the plank!!

We joined a bunch of overseas visitors on this cruise and had a blast. Kiwis are missing out. We felt like we'd enjoyed a week long holiday in just 22 hours - came home feeling great. They do a fabulous job for tourists but it's just as much fun for us natives. We cannot recommend it more highly and we'll be back again. Don't just consider it - book, you truly will have the best time in such a short time and great memories for ever.

Every thing was awesome! would have liked a shower on day two. Staff extremely friendly and looked after children with respect and allergies with care and attention.
