It was our second trip with Sea Cave. We love the intimate group and personal attention of the captain. Oh yes, the views and spots we visited were fantastic, too. Next time in the Coromandel area we plan to make the adventure again. Ashe (I hope I spelled his name correctly) was top notch and we highly recommend this tour.

We honeymooned in Whitianga and took the Sea Cave Adventures tour. Had a fantastic time sitting in the front seat of the boat, the water wasn't completely flat - it was a bit adventurous! But we were completely dry. Amazing sights smells and insights back into history from our tour guide. Highly recommended for anyone.

It was an amazing experience. We all (four adults and a preschooler) loved it. Ash was our tour guide. He was very much knowledgeable about the caves, history, marine life and many more. A kind person with a jovial friendly attitude. He skillfully and safely maneuvered the boat around the rocks and took us into the beautiful caves. It is a must go adventure! Definitely worth the money. Thank you, Ash!

Sea Cave Adventures were fabulous - easy to communicate with when booking and warm, friendly and knowledgeable on the trip. We took a two and half hour tour of the Coromandel coastline, heading south from Whitianga. The boat is new and a perfect size (there were eight of us in total on this trip). We ended up having a swim in the marine reserve off Cathedral Cove - swimming with the snapper. I highly recommend this excursion.
