Owner description: See all the highlights of this spectacular volcanic coastline in one hour including, two film locations from the 2nd Narnia movie Prince Caspian and world famous CATHEDRAL COVE. Explore spectacular sea caves and if dolphins take time out of their busy schedules to visit us in the bay, we have a marine mammal watch permit.When the tide is right you will visit an awesome blowhole and venture into a sea cave 80 feet high. Truly a magical place!

Tim (our guide and boatman) gave us a fun and informative tour of many special spots along the coast. Claire was helpful with the booking and getting in and out of the boat. A great way to get a sense of the area.

We took an early morning departure which was perfect, as apparently it is not as windy as later departures. Excellent commentary throughout the tour, comfortable boat ride and stunning scenery. Thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Good value for money (NZD75 pp)

Fantastic way to see Cathedral Cove and the sea caves and other sights in the area. The views were great, and the amount of time spent on the tour was just right. I would recommend it as the perfect way to see Cathedral Cove.

A couple of words of advice - you will need to walk in the water to get into the boat, just up to knee level, but easy to remove shoes and probably shorts would be ideal. Also, if it's on the chiller side, take a jacket.

Enjoyable and informative boat trip in a boat that is small enough for you to get inside the major sea cave. See all the relevant sights in the area. a bit on the pricey side though.

Hahei Explorer offers a whole new persepctive on the gorgeous Coromandel coastline around Hahei and Cathedral Cove. Fun, friendly, exciting.... the trip is not to be missed on your stay in Hahei. A great experience for all ages and for both New Zealand and international visitors. The commentary is really informative and the guides are charming and professional.
