The entire cruise was an enjoyable experience right from the start to the finish. Gill the captain, and Lauren the host both talked knowledgeably and naturally about the area we were visiting. The Maori rock carving 'Ngatoroirangi' is unique and well worth viewing. Lauren provided delicious blueberry muffins, baked on board, Took us fishing (we caught a rainbow trout) and provided smoked trout and crackers as we headed back to base! And all this experience in just 2 hours - such a great experience and such good value. Thanks Gill and Lauren.

We hired canoes and paddled out to he carving, it was hard work but luckily weather was on our side and it wasn't rough, took about an hour to paddle there. Once we got there we were able to paddle right up to the carving and the weather was so beautiful we managed to dock our canoes onto some rocks and have a swim around at the carving until a tourist boat came when we retreated back to the rocks for safety. There is no signage about the history of the carvings at all but we were able to hear the history from the tourist boat that had arrived and it gave it a lot of perspective. We spent at least half an hour admiring it before we paddled back.

What a big thank you to this firm who took us out to the rock carvings.we were warned that it could be a rough trip - and it was. Our Grandson freaked out at the proximity to the rocks. The crew not only settled him, but provided a picture to colour in, including pencils, and then a chance to visit the wheel house. Not only were the rock carvings stunning, but the care of the crew was to be highly recommended.
