Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked this tour as part of our New Zealand cruise from Australia. We had a blast! Rich was professional and very informative of the islands and their history. Even with the weather being a bit rough on the water and rain, we still had the best time creating some awesome memories. Rich made it very entertaining and would check to make sure everyone was ok to continue. We even got a bit of bonus extra time touring the islands. Highly recommend this company and we will definitely do this again when we go back to bay of Islands.

We were looking for some fun & adventure to celebrate our wedding anniversary and found Richie & his jetski tour. We felt comfortble from the word “GO”. The jetski’s were comfortable to ride on and we both enjoyed the scenic views of the islands. The beautiful weather made the experience even better! Thanks for doing such a top job Richie!

Such an awesome experience, my partner and I absolutely loved the thrill of the jet skis. Rich was very friendly and proved too know a lot about the islands and the history behind it all. Definitely putting this attraction back on our too do list.

My husband and I went on the 3 hr excursion to the hole in the rock and it was incredible! We were the only two on the trip so Rich made sure we were doing exactly what we wanted to do. He checked in with us several times to give us some interesting information about the islands we were seeing and to list our options on how to use our time. Ultimately, we are so glad we went all the way to the hole in the rock as it was so epic as well as the sea cave we got to enter.

There was a review we read earlier about feeling this was dangerous and I will say it is probably better for people who have ridden jet skis before as driving in waves is a bit more intense than what we are used to back in the states on a lake! BUT I never felt unsafe and truly enjoyed this excursion. We even caught a glimpse of a little blue penguin swimming by. It was pretty fun seeing the sightseeing boats come up to the hole and watch while we got to drive through the hole! More adrenaline and more up close and personal to the surroundings!

This was one of the most fun things I have ever done! The Bay of Islands simply are beautiful and stunning and its such a great way to experience them compared to going on bigger boat cruises. Also, I did the extension to Cape Brett and the hole in the rock and experiencing the deep ocean on a jetski is such an awesome adventure. I felt very safe at all times and was very impressed with the stability of the jetskis! Rich and Mardy were super lovely and good people to be around. We also went for a brief snorkel which was spectacular! Overall very strong recommendation!

This was one of the absolute best experiences! We went out for a few hours, saw penguins, went jet skiing between islands and into a cave, snorkeling, and lunch on one of the islands with a little walk the beach. Our guide was so fun to hang out with, he told us about some history and fun facts, and was an expert at navigating us in the cave. The tour was just my husband and I which made it feel personalized. They were also flexible on the start time. A wonderful company to work with in booking a tour!

Thank you for an amazing tour, best value for money tour of the islands and especially hole in the rock in Paihia. The Jet skis were next level and in great condition, the tour guides very knowledgeable and friendly. Best of luck for the rest of summer and the rest of the year.

Great experience. Well worth it. Did it again it was so good. Home in the rocks ride through plus caves, dolphins and massive schools of fish to boot. Even saw a penguin swimming along.

10 years after our first experience with Tango Jet Skis we were back for more - this time with older kids (18 & 21) and for a longer tour (2.5 hours). The weather wasn’t great so the water was a little rough, but Rich did a great job of paving the way and taking us into the coves with calmer water. It also made for an excellent adventure and one we really enjoyed. The island stop with a quick hike for great views was also lovely. We appreciated the fleeces and spray jackets and were plenty warm on our trip despite grey skies. We would definitely go again if we are back in the Bay of Islands!
