“Boat-tastic”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

We loved this hour long ride. The guide was knowledgable, and able to answer any questions we had. Felt safe. Our almost-9-year-old had a blast.
I guess only downfall was that because the sea was a bit rough we missed out on the blowhole - which is the main thing we were looking forward to seeing.
but you can't control mother nature.
this is a brilliant 1 hour spent!

“white water”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Don't sit near the front of the boat when it is a little blustery. You end up wearing most of the Coromandel sea, while the others stay dry!!!! Great trip and really informative

“A must do in Hahei”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

We had a magnificent hour exploring the coastline north and south of Hahei. Tim was a very chatty, informed skipper who navigated us through a beautiful blowhole and also other seaside caves and sights.
Comfortable safe boat and easy friendly booking system.
