Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

From start to finish this was the best experience I’ve done in a long time. The guides Ian and Josh were awesome. They were very knowledgeable and made the experience fun, relaxing but always ensuring safety out on the water. Seeing the bioluminescence was quite surreal. I would highly recommend and will definitely book again.

My friend and I are from Auckland, local. We did the tour out of curiosity. And as a challenge to ourselves.

We enjoyed the tour thoroughly. Peter and Paul and their team were very helpful. They were very professional too.

We were in Peter’s group. He was very knowledgeable and very funny.

The other people on the tour were very friendly. They were from US, Canada, and Germany. We were surprised, but enjoyed their company.

Overall it was a wonderful night. Really glad we did it.

We had a lovely evening. Wonderful to be out on the water, clear sky with lots of stars, calm seas. And the bioluminescence was awesome - especially the blue bow waves and the 'galaxy ' - little lights shining in the water when we dipped in our hands or paddles.

Sam was Knowledgeable, enthusiastic and authentic. We learned about birds, fish, plankton and kayaking. The bioluminescence was otherworldly, alien, and avatar in real life. Exhilarating!

Amazing adventure out looking for bioluminescence. It wasn't quite like the pictures you look up, but was still pretty cool. It was sparkles in the water. I also very much enjoyed kayaking at night and all the stars. The guides were very nice and super knowledgeable. I would definitely do this tour again.
