When you combine your ultra friendly and hospitable hosts Lenny and his amazing wife Antoinette, the beautiful Hokianga Harbour, zippy jet skis, grunty quad bikes, kaimoana freshly collected from the sea floor, stunning coastal walks, landscapes you can only dream of, Maori history and legend, old mates, new mates and the highs of winning meat packs, chickens and kites (!) at the local pub (if you are lucky enough to be there on “Spin the Wheel” night), you have a super-powered, bloody good, fresh air holiday. AAH is bespoke and they can tailor your adventure to suit a wide range of ages - we were a group of 4 adventure lovers in our 40’s but this can easily suit a young family, wider family unit, corporate days, team bonding events. Lenny never stops moving and nothing is ever a problem - I can assure you that you wont want to leave!! My only complaint would be too much food - but it’s sooooo good you cant turn it down. I rolled out of there 2kg heavier after 3 days lol - be warned! Thanks for having us Awesome Adventures Hokianga - you are the epitome of old school kiwi hospitality 🤩. One of the best holidays I’ve had (I’ve had a few!!) and such a special, untouched part of New Zealand. How lucky are we to have this in our backyard (-;

Fun for all ages. First time on a jet ski in my 50s. A group of us were whizzed up the harbour to Horeke and back again for a swim at the sand dunes. Had a fabulous time and suddenly found my sea legs and childhood love of the sea again. Len and Anton are fantastic, friendly and relaxed hosts who give you plenty of confidence - just listen to instructions and you can't go wrong! I had a fantastic time on the SeaDoo and felt young again as I whizzed about on the water like I used to as a kid. Don't forget the sunscreen!!!

Fantastic! First, the jet skis were great. None of us had been on one before but we all had a blast, learning to carve up the waves. After we had settled in to using them to get from A to B, we were all encouraged to take them out and just have fun. And, the are a huge amount of fun, from tight circles to 80k flat out. Our teenagers really appreciated that they were free to mess about on their own and it was great to see their skills and confidence grow. Second, you have to get out on the water to trusty appreciate the Hokianga Harbour. Warm clear water, mussel beds, Mullet jumping, deep golden sand, tree lined gullies... beautiful. Third, the tour is much more than jet skiing. Our host Len is a direct descendant of Kupe and is very knowledgeable and passionate about the area and local history. We enjoyed hanging out and learning. The trip finished with a long yarn over a platter of excellent kai and cold drinks. The smoked fish was excellent, sadly our teens preferred the complimentary Pick n Mix... Yep, something for everyone.

we had a family function in Omapere on the Saturday afternoon. 8 adults and 6 kids arrived on Friday night . Lenny had just been fishing and we were treated top a massive feed of snapper and mussels after downing a few beers . Saturday Morning Antoinette & Lenny cooked a massive breakfast then Lenny took the kids and some of the adults jet skiing around the fabulous harbour. Didnt have too much time so on Sunday all of us went out on the harbour and went over to the sand dunes and the kids went on the biscuit and boogie boarded down the dunes. Overall the weekend was a magical experience and we cannot thank Antionette and Lenny enough for their hospitality .

I have visited AAH 3-4 times now. Every time has been worth the 2 hour drive from Whangarei. I had a memorable Jet Ski Safari last weekend. The group I went with and I got a variety of perks form the experience... history of the area, time exploring the harbour, nearby sand dunes, a relaxing stop in a small town cafe in Kohekohe, and of course a lot of fun in the water. It was great value for the cost. I plan on continuing to visit them for years to come.
