Wow got to say what an awesome day out. We were looking at things to do to celebrate my daughter's birthday and we couldn't have been more pleased. The trip was awesome the crew fantastic and sailing smooth as. I had phoned before to see if the day was available as it was my daughters birthday, little did I know but they made it available and also provided birthday cake for my daughter. What a great day and she'll remember it for a long time. Thank you so much

This trip was a highlight on our recent trip to the Bay of Islands. Mike and the crew kindly took us on board after a mix up with a another boat trip and we were so glad they did! The trip is a beautifully chilled way to see some of New Zealand’s coast. Not only did they make everyone feel safe and comfortable, Mike and his wife Debbi made sure to go round and chat with all the passengers, showing genuine care and interest when they did. The trip was relaxed and fun with the right amount of time spent on the island and sailing. There was plenty of room for everyone on board and our group was filled with a friendly, relaxed and fun bunch of people who made the day all the better. { Yet it felt like there was no pressure to mingle if you wanted to keep to yourself! } Mike, Debbi and Robert made sure we had everything before venturing onto the island and even providing us with snorkels and crocs. Once on the island we were left to explore and walk around with the option to snorkel too. Snorkelling was so great, and we got to see a range of sealift from Stingrays to octopus! Though we were last minute additions to the group, there was plenty of food to go round and the crew even made sure to cater to a gluten free diet despite our last minute addition. Highly recommend this trip for a chilled yet great days activity with a wonderful crew!

Excellent day on a wonderful real yacht, with a fantastic skipper who really knows how to get the best from the available conditions. Mike has clearly learned heaps from life and his 27 seasons in Paihia. Thanks for a great day Mike. Robert was a great Mate, cook and dogsbody, thanks for the great snacks and lunch. I've never enjoyed popcorn so much.

We really enjoyed this day trip. The yacht went to parts of the harbour that you don’t normally see. Mike the skipper had great local knowledge which he shared. We stopped at Roberton Island for a walk and snorkel. The harbour can be quite windy so make sure to take something warm with you. Highly recommend
