What our customers are saying

Hole in the Rock Dolphin Cruise

"Congratulations on what was a fantastic trip today, we really enjoyed ourselves. We were on the 8:30 AM hole in the Rock trip.  The crew were friendly and helpful, and the captain was fantastic. His commentary was really informative and interesting and he had a great sense of humour. He obviously enjoys learning and sharing his knowledge with others. We thoroughly enjoyed listening to everything he said, thank you again."

Cape Reinga & Ninety Mile Beach Tour

"We took part in the Cape Reigna and 90-Mile Beach Day Tour from Paihia. It was one of our favourite things we did in New Zealand! Do not be put off by the long bus journeys, as they are worth every minute. Our tour guide was fantastic, and made us feel very welcome through his singing of traditional Maori songs. Highlights of the day include the fantastic sand boarding, driving on the beach, and seeing the famous cape lighthouse. We also made an early coffee stop in Doutbful Bay, a lovely surprise and something we wouldn't have known to do otherwise. If you have the time, would thoroughly recommend."

Hole in the Rock Dolphin Cruise

"Great boat trip to Otehei Bay and Hole in the rock! Weather was spectacular! Taira was a wonderful captain and had such interesting information about the history of the islands and about local flora and fauna. Highly recommend for a relaxing way to view the islands!:
