Ross Adventures took us on a amazing sea kayak tour at sunset. Our guide (John) was great - personable, full of fun stories and information about the island. The sunset was beautiful, followed by a full moon to cap a perfect evening.

Ross took us on a personal tour of the north shore line and hung out with us after the cruise to talk about everything under the Waiheke sun! Ross makes you feel like family from the moment you meet him. Good guy; great experience!
