Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Had a great time on the Bay of Islands kayaking around the islands. Nick & Bay Beach Hire were very helpful and provided us with kayaks and gear so we could paddle the 20km to Urupukapuka & back. We had a 3 day stay on the Bay and Nick kept us up to date on weather conditions and any other information we may have needed to get around while we were there. We camped on Urupukapuka Island and the kayaks we hired managed to carry all our gear.

    Very pleasant morning spent fishing with Captain Rick and his able sidekick Simon.
    Crew were very professional and helpful, and a fun morning was had by all.
    Plenty of pinky snapper were caught including a few keepers and everyone went home with a feed.

    Enjoyed a great deep sea fishing expedition in the Bay of Islands. Steve (captain) was highly experienced and provided quality rods and bait as we reeled in Kingfish, Snapper, Trevali, Goldfish and Scorpion fish. He fileted them on the water to maximize our fishing time. We brought the fish to a local fish and chip shop who battered them... then my wife, daughter and I had the fresh, delicious fish for lunch!

    Great day out on “Daysout.Skipper worked tremendously hard to put us on Fish. Very knowledgeable,obviously very experienced. Everyone caught Snapper with the odd Kingie
    Boat was first class and very fast meaning we could move around the fishing grounds quickly leaving more time actually fishing. I have booked many charters around the world and Daysout is definitely amongst the best.
    Would I book again? Without a doubt!

    What a fabulous morning we had with Ross and Maurice. We fished, we laughed, we relaxed and had fun. Exactly what you want in a charter. Best charter I've ever been on, and everyone agreed...... we will definitely be back.
    If you're "thinking" about doing this, on suggestion is to stop thinking and get booking!!

    After my first trip with Cap'n Rob, I decided to book a trip with him again when my family came down to NZ to visit. It was just great; Rob is a very interesting person and overall just a great guy. Get him talking, and you'll see what I mean!

    So when some other family members came to visit me, I immediately booked another boat trip. My family all loved it, and so did I. He found some small lagoons for us without any other people there, and even fixed us a place to stay the night (we didn't book ahead). We also saw tons of dolphins and, unlike the tourist dolphin boats with tight schedules, we could hang around and take pictures of 'em for as long as we wanted. And all the time Rob taught us heaps of interesting stuff about local lore and history, culture etc.

    Since you have to book the whole boat, it's probably best to be 4-7 people so that the price per person is affordable.

    If you want to see the Bay of Islands, you should definitely use Rob! And book ahead :)

    Although the boat was full, there was room to move around. We visited the hole in the rock but were unable to sail through it due to rough seas. The highlights for us were the views and excellent sightings of dolphins which swam alongside the boat.
