We had a great morning on the water. The boat is fast and feels very safe. The views along the coast were wonderful. Our captain ,Justin (I think!) was excellent with good stories about the history and geography of the coast line. Would definitely go again. We liked the open boat sides more than the glass bottom boat that does the same route.

Wow guys what a fantastic company and tour. Booked our tour online and within 10 minutes of booking received a phone call from them saying the time slot we had booked may not go ahead due to sea conditions. We were given the option to join an earlier tour which worked well for our plans and we were so grateful we did as the weather turn awful later in the day. The tour itself was awesome and the guide super knowledgeable made the tour interesting for all ages including our teenager. Well done team will definitely be recommending you to friends and family.

We had an awesome time on this cruise. Our friendly guide was very knowledgeable about the area and was very patient while letting the people on board take plenty of photos. Definitely a great way to see the bays near Whitianga and the beautiful scenery of NZ. We rate this cruise as a highlight of our road trip round the Coromandel.
