  • 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.

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.

    Amazing morning out exploring with the kids! They had so much fun spotting different fish and marine plants! The swim/ snorkeling at the end was an added bonus! The skipper and host are highly knowledgeable of the environment and surrounding areas and very friendly and welcoming! Highly recommend for a family friendly fun day out.

    Justin was an excellent tour guide. He told us lots of interesting facts and was an excellent pilot, skillfully turning the boat and waiting a few minutes so that we could get pictures in all directions.
    The boat trip was spectacular and was the highlight of our New Zealand holiday.
    The seating was comfortable and we all felt safe with life jackets ready to be deployed if necessary. We had a roof as cover over the boat so we did not get too sunburnt. Justin was very entertaining and friendly. I would definitely recommend this adventure.

    My experience aboard the Mercury Bay Discovery Boat was nothing short of extraordinary. The exceptional crew members, Adam and Ella's enthusiasm was infectious, making them perfect guides. The highlight of the day for me was undoubtedly, snorkelling with the fish.

    What a fun way to spend an afternoon. We were fortunate to have a beautiful sunny afternoon with excellent wind for sailing. This skipper and her 1st mate were awesome. The sailing itself was beautiful and relaxing. They have a maximum of 12 customers per sail and that enables you to have enough room to spread out a bit and enjoy. (3 - 4 people per quadrant on the trampolines). I think the front right quadrant is the best (unless you want shade!)

    Awesome morning with Sam & Kat. Cathedral Cove is amazing, snorkeling was a bonus! Arrived back more relaxed than a 3hr massage. A definite highlight of our trip, would highly recommend.

    This is an excellent Coromandel experience! Run by 2 professional, experienced and enthusiastic young men.
    They were calm reassuring and provided great guidance for experienced and beginner kayakers alike.
    Knowledge of the local area and features as well as being mindful of the weather and conditions was a focus of the trip.
    Our group would highly recommend this trip.

    Unreal sailing experience, great conditions! Mat and his team delivered the goods. The beers, wine and local fish treats was an awesome addition.

    We did this tour in Jan 23, just got back. First 2 weeks was excellent. Great group of eclectic, insane, funny and lovely people. Runty our tour guide went to great lengths to ensure he accommodated our every need despite little support or guidance from Hakka. He bent over backwards to please us and provide alternative activities when planned ones were cancelled.
    Cancelling the glamping was super disappointing and totally inappropriate of Hakka especially as it had been sold as a highlight of the trip. The compensation offered was insulting but Runty took it upon himself to try to make things better.
    The second 2 weeks of the trip was a disaster weather wise, we didn’t get to do the planned activities so very disappointing. No one’s fault but again Runty tried to make the best of our trip offering alternatives he personally knew about. Hakka was calling on him for advice to advise other trip leaders.
    Overall Hakkas administration of the tour was poor, the bus itself was a banger, not good enough to transport people on a tour that cost as much as this and the accommodation was not consistent. I believe Runtys resourcefulness saved the day for us all but probably wouldn’t book with a company that sub contracts to Hakka again.

    The Jet boat was a brilliant way to enjoy the delights of Cathedral Cove and surrounds. It was an exhilarating ride on a small craft, able to explore the coves and caves. Our Host Justin was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. I'm a bit of a chicken but it wasn't scary. Got pretty wet though !
