What an epic trip! The crew fully catered the trip to everyone on the boat whether you wanted to learn how to steer, a scenic trip or to get into the water for swimming and snorkeling . Mat and Sam were knowledgeable, friendly and weren't in your face with information but were approachable if you were interested or had questions. The weather was exceptional and the hammocks were extra comfy with bean bags and blankets provided. The glass of wine and fruit was a great touch too. Would definitely recommend and am looking forward to going back next summer.

Our family group of 10 adults booked a private 4 hour charter of the catamaran. Captain Matt was a great guide and host. We had the most fantastic time sailing around to Cathedral Cove as well as a snorkelling session at the Marine Reserve. When quizzed Matt was also very knowledgeable about the local and marine history and environment. Very relaxing and enjoyable trip including some food and drinks on the sale back. Would really recommend it as a great day out. it was the highlight of our holiday.

Superb trip. Warm hospitality and cold beer. The big catamaran makes for a comfortable cruise with bean bags and no heeling!

This was the most relaxing and peaceful way to spend an afternoon that I could imagine! Sitting down on the beanbags upon the open trampoline net of the catamaran felt like we were some kind of celebrity. Matt and Sam could not have been better in any way. We had a wonderful afternoon. This trip was a Christmas gift to us and we will definitely be passing it on as a gift to others in the future. The weather wasn't perfect, didn't get to snorkel but we didn't feel like we missed out at all. The catamaran made the sailing incredibly smooth. Highly recommend for anyone, your soul will be refreshed at the end of this experience. We were able to help sail if we wanted, or could just sit and breathe in the sea air, listen to the waves, move to the ocean and appreciate the glorious Coromandel coastline. The juice and fruit platter was the perfect snack too. Highly recommend!

Hey, thanks for this cool review and the nice little out of the blue email a few days after your trip saying how much you all loved it. A beanbag on a yacht in the sun is certainly a good place to share a few laughs
