  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.
We perform checks on reviews.
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.

    Fantastic day, great sailing and swimming, friendly/informative crew, tasty lunch. Got to lift the sails and climb out and up while hooked into a safety harness. Best of all, the cost went to getting kids out on the water. Win win!

    This was one of the highlights of our three week trip to New Zealand. We'd booked a great lunch at the Duke of Marlborough then joined the sunset cruise. It was great to meet the young people working the boat and the Captain and everyone else were knowledgeable and entertaining. We had a really great trip, there was a bit of wind and we helped put the sails up and our eldest climbed the rigging. Would thoroughly recommend it, great way to spend a late afternoon and support a very worthwhile cause.

    Absolutely amazing experience. Great crew and service. Lunch was very good and we got everything we needed. Island time was the perfect length to go for a walk and a swim. We loved the small group size, would absolutely recommend.

    Our guide Tina (Tiana?) to Point Reigna and 90 mile Beach was excellent. She is such a hard worker, driving the bus, providing commentary, serving lunch, and keeping track of everyone. Our guide in Russell was excellent also. They both made the tour a lot of fun.
    We loved Urupukapuka Island on the Hole in the Rock cruise- we could have spent an entire day there. The tour of the Waitangi Treaty Grounds was beautiful and educational. Since our hotel was so close to the bus station, the taxi was unnecessary - in fact, upon return, we did not see the cab and walked back. To the driver’s credit, she followed up and attempted to locate us. In the future, maybe make taxi pickups optional.
    The motel choice was excellent - next to the water and outstanding room design and layout plus it was immaculately clean.

    We rented the boat to ourselves for the day. Nat was great at communicating and while the weather was not perfect we had a great time. We sailed out to an island (1.5 hrs) and then did a full hike around the island (1.5 hrs) had a delish lunch on the boat with our wine and then sailed back. Nat was great to talk to and learn more about the area. On our way back we got to see some dolphins!

    If you would like a perfect day in the Bay of Islands you should charter with this company. Rick and Robin were fantastic hosts. So friendly and accommodating to your wishes. The boat is beautiful, the scenery unmatched and the hosts top notch
    Lunch was very tasty. I have run out of superlatives to describe the experience.
    In other words I would highly recommend them.

    I can’t get over how great this jewelry workshop was ! Tui and Mark are just the kindest : Tui picked me up at Russel Wharf, was kind enough to do the workshop even though I was alone, and the whole time was explaining everything about copper jewelry, showed me first before letting me try to do it. They also offered me tea and homemade muffins which were lovely ☺️ I learned a lot and left with great memories, had a great time chatting with them and Tui was very encouraging and kind and even gave me a lift to the Russel flagpole for me to visit next!
    They were just amazing, cannot recommend them enough 🥰
