Had an excellent time with Dan and Ace on the Cruise - Kayak tour this afternoon. They're both super lovely and helpful, clearly know a lot about the Bay of Islands and have a ton of entertaining stories to share. Ruby is great too - she handled my numerous queries and questions with utmost ease. Such a great time at such an affordable price, would definitely recommend everyone to support this lovely local family business.

We joined the cruise as a family, my mum stayed on the boat while watching us and listened to Taylor's local knowledge, who toke good care of mum and engaged well despite the language barrier. I tried paddle boarding for the first time, both Taylor and Ace made me at ease and were amazing at taking us around the mangrove and to the waterfall.
Taylor and Ace made sure all participants got the appropriate attention and interaction. Absolutely brilliant concept.
Strongly recommend them. Booking process was simple and efficient.
Such a friendly welcoming team.
If you are on a cruise ship, once you tender, take the free shuttle bus, which will take you to the warf, it is literally 3 min walk, super easy.

We had a great trip with Taylor. We were the only ones that booked the morning tour. Instead of reschedule us Taylor was happy to ake us on the tour.

Really nice guy, very interessted in the people that join him on the boat. Showed us many pretty spaces and told great stories before heading to the falls.

It was really cool the see the waterfall from a different perspective.

We would really recommend this tour. It has small groups and a really personal feeling. You can tell they have a passion for the area and are not just in this for making money on tourist as some tours do.

This is a fantastic experience. Taylor, our host and guide, was very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. He was born here and clearly loved this special part of the region. The experience was well organised, safe, and provided a unique opportunity to get up close with the stunning environment. All equipment provided to ensure a fun and safe experience on the water.

Our family planned this for the first morning we arrived in Paihia and ended up being the highlight of our whole trip! Not only was the scenery beautiful, the knowledge fascinating but by the end of the trip you feel that Dan and Ace were your mates. They were so much fun and full of so much good information that we learned and had fun. Relaxing, entertaining, and awesome! A must Do!

This experience was amazing. Taylor and Red were awesome hosts, very welcoming. My 5 kids, husband and I had a blast and loved going under the waterfall. My youngest even got to drive the boat, thank you Taylor it made his day.

Dan & Ace were fantastic guides, they provided so much information about the local environment. But the highlight was Dan & Ace sense of humour & adventure. Our tween-age girls had a ball. Highly recommend :)

Great day out with friends who don't have much kayaking experience. Ben is very friendly and knowledgable about the area and birds.
A cruise on his boat for 15 mins, then off to kayaking to the waterfall.

The waterfall is not as impressive as it looks on photo....to me its not really a waterfall....

The tour is perfect for those who don't have any kayaking experience at all..but for those who has previous experience, its better off to rent your own sea kayak and find your way (just followed the river and you'll reach the waterfall!) or go to other island instead.

Great fun for all the family. We were a party of 6 and booked in true kiwi style: last minute. We had a fab time with Ben and Kelly. Highly recommend the 4:00pm cruise because it isn't scorching hot but you still have the sun to warm you up on the way back, once you tested the waterfall and capsizing!!!

Beach Cleanup,
that sounds like hard work and not a lot of fun....
Totally different!!
It was by far one of the best days out in the bay if islands i`ve ever had.
we were an small group of people and went to amazing remote beaches picking up rubbish and washed up stuff. it was like doing a beachwalk with a good purpose.
during the cleaning we learned a lot about nature, and how we can safe the enviroment from getting destroyed.
We endet up having a nice picknick on the beach under a tree and having a little break from the "hard work" with a washed up rugby ball we found.
All in all, the ammount of rubbish we collected was huge for the ammount of time, and we had a amazing day out!
the crew was amazing informative and friendly.
thank you so much for this Kiwi-experience the different way!!
cheers,
ben
