We were on a time limit and unsure if we could fit in the 2hr round trip to walk, when we saw the water taxi ready to head off. They saw us walking down the beach and waited for us. Friendly staff, quick trip, and we were able to visit Cathedral Cove and walk back to Hahei Beach without running late for our next excursion - perfect

Excellent service. Fast. Easy to book on the beach once you’ve decided you can’t be bothered walking back up the hill. (Lovely 30min downhill stroll from the top carpark at Hahei).
Only negative is the price. $70 for family of four one way and it’s a 10min trip.

This quick 5 -10 minute water taxi to Cathedral Cove is worth it if your feet ache too much to walk the trail. Cathedral Cove is beautiful and a "not-to-be-missed" destination. Or walk one way through the Fern Forest and take the taxi the other way. The Fern Forest is a must see part of the Coromandel Peninsula too.

My friend hurt his foot while walking out to cathedral cove so we got a taxi back - the staff are so friendly and helpful, speedy return to hahei and nice to see the coast from a boat too!

This saved a lot of time. We took it one way into Cathedral Cove and walked back on the trail. It looks like there is usually a queue for the return visit from Cathedral Cove back to the car park (so get in line early or buy tickets soon after arriving at Cathedral Cove), but there was no wait for the ride into Cathedral Cove from the car park.

Totally calm day. Got to Cove on foot. Waited for water taxi. After over 30 minutes no sign of it. Rang the number to get message that no service due to weather conditions. Wonder if in fact due to low numbers of tourists. Don’t market yourselves as a service always running every 30 minutes.

Hi there. Understand your frustration. Unfortunately we can't run when there is too much swell, as it's just not safe and too difficult to land a 4T of boat on the beach. There are good numbers of tourists around and we'd love to be working. We state on our signage we are weather dependant and to please call the number prior to check whether we're working, or not, to avoid disappointment. Thanks.

Wow so cool..... we decided to take the water taxi to Cathedral Cove and on board was Hayden and Katy, which were both superstars and were so lovely. We got dropped at the cove and decided to walk back, what an amazing way to spend the day.

But you can do it either way or both ways, this is a great service with an amazing team which allows people to see the cove without the walk and the amazing coast on the way to the cove.

We are kiwis and would highly recommend this company.

Thanks again team
