Brilliant day out with Barefoot Adventures. What a sweet ride on the Cat! Incredibly comfortable day sailing lounging on bean bags whilst soaking in sun, sea air and the beautiful bay scenery. Wonderful to learn and help support the Project Island Song. If you only get one chance to get out to the bay then this is definitely the boat and crew to choose. Luke and Rachael wonderful hosts and food was excellent! We will be back with the tribe. Thanks for a memorable day.
We had a fantastic day out with our hosts, Nick, Lynn & Anna. They were very friendly and knowledgeable and went out of their way to make our day memorable and special We stopped at Roberson island for a hike to the lookout point which was absolutely breathtaking and had morning tea under a tree on the beach. We travelled to Urapukapuka next for snorkelling, paddle boarding and lunch before heading back to Russel.
Was such a perfect chilled day. Luke was a brilliant host and very knowledgeable. Loved the small touches like morning tea. Plenty of time in the bay. Will be recommending to everyone I know travelling to the bay of Islands. This was honestly the most relaxed I've been in weeks just watching the views and soaking up the sun. We would do it again if we are in the area for sure.
Excellent experience. Good commentary but not loud and continuous. Gave you time to enjoy the moment. Calm enough to go through the 'hole' which was great. Didn't see dolphins unfortunately but we made the most of the free trip if you didn't see them first time. Saw the dolphins that time so the bonus trip was worth it.
We had an absolute blast on this trip! Would highly recommend. Lynn was super nice and told some great stories about where we stopped, and seemed to make an effort to have a mean convo with everyone. The places we stopped at were gorgeous and we had so much fun snorkeling and paddle boarding.
