    Lovely, well-maintained track. Beautiful native bush, especially heartening to see so many mature and juvenile kauri trees and nikau palms. Thriving bird life - we were serenaded by tui and kereru. Spectacular views from several spots along the way.

    You could see just as much if not more snorkelling than diving. Great experience and can recommend Dive! Tutakaka.

    My daughter and I had a ball, father wasn’t keen! We had come prepared with head torches and water shoes, so we didn’t mind getting wet. These caves are not for the “ tourists “ who want to drive to the door and see some awesome caves. You have to be prepared to walk to them, scramble around rocks, get a bit wet and dirty. I wouldn’t recommend going into the caves for young children as the rocks are large and they wouldn’t have the reach to grip the boulders. But the surrounding rock formations outside of the caves are amazing!! So much fun had here playing hide and seek, climbing ect. Very unique rocks.
    We went right through the middle cave(organ cave) popped out 159m later, steep entry and exit was tricky. Hadn’t had a lot of rain, so water was only ankle deep. Other caves looked a bit more challenging.

    We came to Packards just a for a look, 2 hours later we were so pleased we stopped by. Mel gave us an incredible low down on everything, lots to see & learn about. Super interesting and not just cars! We will be recommending this place to EVERYONE, this place was just fab!

    The best value for money adventure tourism in NZ. $40 for an adult for 3hrs fun - totally worth it. Small operation, only 3 staff, but really well designed and run. They didn't overfill the forest so you never had to wait long for anything. Really excellent safety system, easy and reliable. Done similar things in e.g. Rotorua and felt ripped off.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our day here. Our party consisted of Two seniors,parents and young school aged kids.Everyone wears a life jacket which took a lot of stress of us.My husband and I did not go on any of the inflatables but we kayaked and just relaxed in the water.It was very hot and we would have loved an iceblock but there were cold drinks.$30.00 each was Ok I guess but a little pricey considering we were not going on the inflatables but we could understand why .Beware there is a long walk from the carpark especially going back up hill but as we had a child that wasnt well they allowed us to bring our car down.Staff and safety was very good.
