A fantastic memorable day. Ken (Captain) was a great guide and knew about the areas he took us to. Stopped and explained several places of interest and for photo opportunities. Was very attentive to our wishes and a thoroughly nice bloke. would recommend highly as a must activity to do in Whitianga.

It was a very special day, our experience was unique. The boat owner Ken was very kind and gave us all the details about the tour. All the time we told stories about what we saw, we always put us in safety and wondered if we were well observed. The tour is wonderful, amazing, really a beautiful walk to do on sunny days. The duration was 3 hours, and it took time to snorkel. and live beautiful, caves, famous cathedral, beach, beautiful seascapes. Thank you very much Ken.

Absolutely fantastic day and brilliant value for money. I thought it was a great personalised experience. The Ororua Sea Cave is really impressive.

It was an amazing trip! Absolutely loved it! Ken is an awesome captain & host, and he can take some pretty great photos and videos as well (he recorded a slow motion underwater video of Snappers for me, how cool is that??). Boat is lovely too. Snorkelling was incredible. We even spotted a sea lion on the shore, which then went into the water and was swimming around the boat for ages. Couldn’t be happier!
