Crew were excellent. Very Profesional and super friendly, great local knowledge. We were lucky enough to see a huge pod of dolphins. The boat was very clean and well looked after. Skipper was amazing, he made shooting through the hole in the rock look so easy. Great skill and confidence. Felt very safe on board. Three in our party including our 5 year old grand daughter. Highly recommend this trip. 5 stars... well done guys.
Most enjoyable afternoon on board the catamaran soaking up the beautiful surrounds of the bays, small islands and seascape. Informative guide. Never expected to see the dolphins ducking and diving so close was a highlight and of course reaching the final destination the hole in the rock! Beautiful.
A absolutely brilliant day, so much more than we were anticipating and we didn’t even see any dolphins! (we can go again, for free, at some point in the future in the hope of seeing dolphins but honestly, we absolutely got our money’s worth, even without dolphins)
It was an amazing experience, the only bummer about it is if you choose to stay on the island for the extra few hours is you don’t get to experience seeing the dolphins on the chance they are ther on your way back to paihia.
The crew were friendly and helpful throughout the trip and the captain gave good commentary and explanation of everything happening, which made us enjoy the trip because there was nothing to stress us out.
