“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Enjoyed seeing Nelson from a different view. The owner is helpful, knowledgable and friendly. Interesting to see the boulder bank up close and you can visit the lighthouse for great views. Bird life plentiful and a couple of seals.

“Great service - ferry and kayaks”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

In the last few months our family has hired the ferry for a trip to the Boulder Bank and Lighthouse; and also rented kayaks a couple of times from Bruce. He is a very nice, helpful guy who gives good advice and looks after you very well.

“Very accomodating”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

We used the Ferry for our wedding at the Boulder Bank lighthouse. We had a rehearsal trip on the Friday, a set up trip on Saturday morning and then 4 trips Saturday afternoon to get the 100 guests to the lighthouse and 4 to get them all back. Bruce was very accommodating, super friendly and professional. The Ferry was perfect for our large group and added to the atmosphere of our day.

“Kayak hire”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

We hired a twin, ride-on kayak to enjoy a sunny afternoon in Nelson. The kayak was good quality, hiring was really easy and good value ($60 for 2 hours). The chap we hired from was really friendly and gave us good advice about where to go/what to do. It was a relaxed trip and we enjoyed afternoon tea on the island. We were even able to take our little dog with us so it was a real family outing!!
