“Heaps of fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Wow I sat on the back with my husband and he drove the jet ski. Never thought I would have had such a great time. We booked the three hour tour out to the hole in the rock. We got soaking wet however it never mattered as the sun was shinning and the views were breathtaking. Our guide Dave was very relaxed and also had a good knowledge of the area and the stories to go with it. We had our two boys with us who had a great time speeding along the water at 90km. We enjoyed seeing fur seals up close and even had a couple of dolphins come right up close to the jet ski, not something we could ever have done on a boat. A wonderful memory created.

“Boat trip - brilliant alternative to Mac attack”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

We took a family trip on this boat tour as my youngest son was too short for the Mac attack. Having done both this was much better with much more information from a very friendly knowledgeable guide. It was just as exciting and we saw dolphins much more closely in this small group. Highly recommended.

“Awesome jetski ride!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

1st time on a jetski, no problem at all. My wife & I just shared a tandem ski on an hour tour of the Bay with Dave. Perfect day for it, Sped across to the Islands for a tiki tour. Dave was very informative about the history. Blasted out to the middle of the Bay where we found a pod of dolphins hanging out. We cruised amongst them as they swum around the skis. Awesome experience being so close to these huge mammals. Great action pics for the memories. Thanks Dave. Well worth it. Recommend it over the ferry cruises anyday.

“Awesome way to see the Bay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

Thanks heaps Tango Jet Skis. We had the best afternoons! What an awesome way to see our beautiful Bay of Islands. HIghly recommend the tours. We went all the way out to the Hole in the Rock. AMAZING! Got up close and personal to all the little bays and caves that you can't get to in a bigger boat. Cant wait to go again! Recommend to anyone that loves fun on the water.
