We did the overnight cruise and Wow!! I have travelled the world and had many experiences but this is up there in my top 5. The crew were so welcoming and went out of their way to ensure we had the best time ever. I have never seen my 12 year daughter so excited and the crew made sure that... More

I planned this trip months ago. Booked and paid only to have it cancelled by the operator 2 days out from the planned date. Thsnks for destroying our honeymoon plans. Will never get my recomendation for any event tour or hotel in this town due to you.

Hi Alexandria, When we spoke with your husband on the phone on the Friday (we wanted to let you know before the weekend so that you could make another plan for the Monday), he was very understanding. Katja spent a long time offering alternative activities and giving suggestions of what to do in this beautiful area. We had no idea... More

We did this as part of a G Adventures tour for our unconventional honeymoon and had such a brilliant time. It was the first leg of our trip so made for a spectacular start! After a month travelling in this beautiful country, we still thought that the Rock was a highlight - especially visiting the luminous algae! Definitely recommend.

About a month ago I went on the Rock The Boat Cruise with my now Topdeck Family. What an incredible experience, I went through both islands and this was still my #1 favourite thing to do. The moment you get picked up and jump on that boat you feel like family, they pretty much instantly remember everyone's names and you... More

This proved to be a really interesting time on the water, with plenty of things to try. We boarded the houseboat at 5pm and settled into our bunkrooms. As we headed out past Russell a plastic claybird duck was being towed, and we had a go at target shooting at it with an airgun. We would take turns, shooting three... More

This is a must do in the Bay of Islands! I had the most amazing time and there was never a dull moment. The activities we were able to do in a short amount of time was awesome-- night kayaking with bioluminescent waters and breath-taking stars, fishing, dinner with other adventurers that become fast friends, snorkeling, swimming, island hiking, etc!...

As a local to the Bay of Islands, I found the Rock Adventure Cruise to be the most authentic Kiwi experience that you could receive! From the friendly staff, relaxed environment, shared stories over home cooked meals and range of activities that we did - you couldn't ask for a more Kiwi holiday. The highlight for me was definitely the... More
