The day we went out was pretty choppy and drizzly but we had an absolute blast! We really had to hold on but it was worth the effort . Our guide took us into nooks and crannies that we would never have seen on foot....More
The boat trip takes you along the coast and around the islands and past Cathedral Cove. It can be chilly out on the water so take a jacket. Our guide/driver was very informative and happy to answer our questions. The hour just flew by. Would...More
Great experience from start to finish. The boat normally leaves from Hahei beach but due to swell the departure point was changed to Cooks Beach. As we were coming from Whitianga Tim offered to pick us up from Ferry Landing and take us to Cooks...More

We find the calmest time to travel is the morning tours. We have summer tours at 9am, 10am, and 11am. Also if you come out when the tide is 2.5hours either side of high tide you will get to visit the amazing underground blowhole, which is a highlight of our tour. The tide is right this weekend for all 3 morning tours to get into the blowhole. We hope this helps cheers.
