Customer Testimonials

"So great. The boat was very cool. We were able to sit in the front row of the boat. We got splashed by spray, but not soaked. The skipper navigated waves like a champion, so that it was not too rough. Interesting commentary. Great friendly staff at check-in"

"We absolutely loved this activity and will definitely do it again when we return, the tour was fun, the guide was amazing and the fast boat meant that we were able to glide over the bumps with ease and the suspension seats were definitely a blessing. We were on a cruise so we did the 10am and this left us plenty of time to check out the markets and the incredible bakery. We were able to get through the hole and go quite some way in to the cathedral caves which were breathtaking. We highly recommend this tour. Definitely use the spray jacket provided and don’t forget your sunscreen and sunglasses. We cannot wait to get back to Bay of Islands to do it all again. Our teenagers told us that this was the highlight of their entire trip."
