  • Had an amazing tour today on the Ferry. Fantastic crew! We had a 7 year old with us and the girls on board were amazing with him. A massive bonus was being able to see some dolphins on the way back and hearing some info about them from the crew. Can't recommend this enough! Would do it again in a heart beat.
  • Trip to Moutohora today was fantastic. Nice boat ride out and back with a marvellous 2 hour stay on the island. A very personable, knowledgeable and informative guide provided interesting commentary and facts about the flora, fauna and conservation work taking place on the island and in the country at large. Highly recommended. A great day out. Thank you.
