We were a group of five friends and a 2.5 years old child. We went for a Banana boat ride and trust me it was a great fun, nice views & amazing hospitality. A nice cup of tea with cookies were served in between the sea to make us feel warm by the boat owners. Our 2.5 years old little master were given a free extra ride. Highly recommended , a must try if you are in whitianga.

What a generous offer from the Banana boat team in Whitianga who offered our CanTeen members an experience to remember. Some had a scenic cruise whilst others experienced an adrenaline rush! Thank You so much for supporting our young people living with cancer, you rock!

Initially, we chose the banana boat, just because the water taxi wasn't operating due to rough weather. After the trip, we felt we were very lucky that we missed the water taxi. We were a family of 7, it was exciting all of us riding in the banana boat including my parents who are 60+. They enjoyed each and every moment of the ride. Our boat tipped over just before we reached the shore. However, it was so much fun and we were well looked after by Elly, Steve and Kali. We felt like close family friends with them. Steve stopped the boat in an area with spectacular views. Elly was so kind to take our kids (11 & 7) for a swim when they refused to get down the water. Lovely hospitality Steve, the great cup of tea and cookies in the middle of the sea. The only thing that we were not able to stop at cathedral cove due to rough waves and also we were not swimmers. Highly recommend checking the weather before you go. Lifetime experience, loads of fun, please do not miss, suits young or old or teen or family.
