She is powered by two outboard motors that run at a grand 450 horse power. We can cater for Water Taxi Charters for up to 13 people with cosy indoor and outdoor seating.

Loved our time fishing near Waiheke Island with Matt today. Lovely guy. Great spots with good fish. Totally recommend this experience. A real treat to have our rods baited and the fish filleted for us. Yum, snapper for dinner tonight!

We had a fabulous day exploring the coast of Waiheke with Matt, topped off by some up close encounters with Orcas and also Bronze Whaler sharks, causing us to go over time which Matt allowed without rushing us. Highly recommended!
