Had a fantastic day out around the islands, a good amount of time to see some of the secluded islands, do an easy walk to the lookout on Roberton island, and then find a sheltered beach on Urupukapuka. Skipper Lyn found us a beautiful beach which we pretty much had to ourselves to paddle board and snorkel. Lyn was full of interesting stories about the area and even provided fresh Kina to try. Would definitely recommend for a day out

Fantastic day out exploring the Bay of islands. Paddle boarding, snorkeling, swimming, walking or just laying in the sun. Super relaxed pace and Nick was a brilliant host. Loved it.

The beaches Nic and Yana took us were top notch! Warm and crystal clear water, snorkelling and stand up paddle boarding was so easy and fun! It’s the perfect way to explore the islands. Nic and Yana were so much fun and friendly, they surely know where to take us regardless the weather. The day went so fast, the water travel wasn’t trough, the size of the group is perfect too! Even the lunch we bought from them were delicious! Highly recommended!

What a fun afternoon in the beautiful Bay of Islands! We were met by our super friendly guide Nic and taken out to the beautiful bay. Stopped on Robertson Island for some history and stunning views. Then on to a sheltered bay for play time snorkelling, paddle-boarding and enjoying the stunning bay. Loved the smaller more personalised experience - would HIGHLY RECOMMEND
