“Fantastic Tour”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Many thanks to Les for the fantastic trip, amazing landscape and so much to see.
Les was very knowledgeable on the surroundings, and we highly recommend this trip.
Glad you had plenty of blankets as it was pretty cold on the way back into shore.. :)

Cheers

“One of the definite highlights of our holiday”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Owner/operator Les assured us we wouldn't get wet. Unexpected swell came up and we smashed into it. My front seat copped the spray. Everyone else stayed dry! Good for a laugh. Informative and scenic tour. Sure beats the steep descent and climb to see Cathedral Cove on foot!!

Thanks Les. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip today. The scenery was amazing as were your boating skills. It was exciting and fun! Felt safe in rough conditions. Well worth the time and money spent.

“This is the one, very safe great trip”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

Dan is a fantastic bloke. He is passionate, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the whole coastline not just Cathedral Cove which seems to catch everyone's imagination but you will see much much more on this trip. We saw lots of snapper in the marine reserve
The weather wasn't too good on the day we went out, Friday 17 Feb, but we felt safe at all times. Dan handles the boat very professionally and expertly and ensures a comfortable passage. The boat is quite small and that means Dan can take you right into the caves , some of the larger boats might not be able to do this.
The life jackets that are issued to each passenger are very small and you don't know that you are wearing them,some other boats issued far more bulkier ones.
On this boat all seats face forward and we sat at the back but we still had a great view.
Again on other boats you can be sitting side on which means that you are looking into the boat. As Dan positions the boat bow forward into the caves everyone is looking forward and gets a great view,
We took dozens of spectacular pics.
We were delighted with our trip and would highly recommend this to anyone for a great couple of hours.
The leaflet we picked up has a black background with sea cave in white letters and a green outline of cathedral cove and the word adventures in green underneath [--] gets you through to book
I am not connected to this company just really happy to recommend this trip
If you are down at the wharf the boat is an inflatable rib with blue pontoons with 'Sea Cave Adventures' emblazoned along its sides.

“Great Family Fun”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Dan is a fantastic guide. We went to the best places and not only the places that everyone goes to. It was informative , saw some beautiful scenery and most importantly had a lot of fun. We highly recommend you use Whitianga Adventures for a great couple of hours whilst in Whitianga.
