As soon as we docked after 26 fun hours on The Rock, my usually screen-addicted 13 year old declared "I wish we'd had a whole extra day". Unanimously voted the best part of our ten day long roadtrip. We had a fabulous time - thanks Jonny, Erin and Tyran. Night-time kayaking with bioluminescence, excellent food, comfortable quarters, swimming, fishing, paddle boarding, snorkelling, what more could you ask for? Even better than we had hoped.

Great for a night away for a change. Lovely food, with suggestions to bring snacks thought we would be hungry but not, water available and hot drinks no charge, well fed thanks. If writing an itinerary you need to be closer to the times written on it in the amount of time you do the activities. The duck shooting allowed us 3 shots each so over in 5 minutes, not a lot of fun Im afraid. Lovely accomodation, comfortable beds, they gave our son his own room as there were not a lot of people on board, much aprreciated. The snorkling was way too short, not like the times indicated then the boat was near the island it was moored a long way from shore so those who wanted to snorkel as was suggested on the itinerary had to swim a long way to the rocks. The kayaking again was very short at night, not like the times on the itinerary but the efforescence was amazing. There was no option to do this longer. So overall good, more time needs to be allowed on the activities provided to enjoy them properly. loved diving off the boat and having a go with wobbly table tennis. Going to bed and waking up to the sunrise you couldnt beat, felt like we were on the boat at Halong bay in Vietnam... Thanks for looking after us.

We (1adult and 2 children family) enjoyed an overnight adventure cruise with the rock and it became the highlight of our trip to paihia, the crew were friendly, informative, chill and so accommodating to my kids. We participated in all the activities but there was no pressure if you didn't, we dived off the back of the boat with the sun setting in the background, we night kayaked, we dived for kina, snorkled, saw dolphins and fished and fished. We shared a room with 3 other lovely travelers which was all good because we hardly stayed in our room anyway and the kai (food) was simple but delicious, my 10yr old son was quite sad to leave but is now begging me for a fishing rod. If you want to experience a real kiwi seaworthy adventure that is jam packed but yet very relaxing and is fantastic for ALL ages than book here 10/10 truly a great experience.
