The tour was great and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
Such a great trip. Knowledgeable driver/guide. A lot sucked into one day.
This is definitely the way to see the Bay of Islands! This was one of the highlights of our trip. The helicopter company was on time and the pilot was very informative. Would highly recommend.
The best time ever..the crew and vessel were amazing..
Just got back form 2 weeks exploring the North Island of New Zealand, including a couple days in the Bay of Islands. If you are up that way, thoroughly recommend taking the time to take a guided walk through the Puketi Rain Forest.
Barabra the tour operator looked after me with quick follow up on any questions I had before the tour, including arranging pick up and drop off form my Pahai hotel for me. She made a fabulous lunch including to die for home made chocolate mud muffins. She is called the muffin queen for a very good reason.
Helen my guide was awesome, very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and passionate about the forest, the wildlife and flora. I did the 6 hour hike and thoroughly enjoyed myself, with one of the highlights having our lunch at the base of a 1000 year old Kauri tree magical. The little touches on the tour made it very special, home made muffins, a fantastic lunch, Helen provided me with a print out of the area and where we walked with information on the forest and region, and Helens took the time to point out all the things that made the forest special. The time flew by. This is a must do in the Bay of Islands.

Top trip up to the Cape. The guide was the best. Always helpful. The views were to 'die for'. Really enjoyed the sand boarding.
Fantastic, the scenery, the meal and the staff were brilliant. Just a shame that it was so still on the day so we didn't travel far.
Absolutely fantastic. Beautiful boat, lovely crew and a stunning location. What more could you want?
I would highly recommend this trip for anyone! I booked this trip for a group of my friends and we all enjoyed our day! The crew, food, the hands on experience sailing and the views were so memorable!
This was an awesome tour. I would reccomend this to anyone visiting the Bay of Islands area !
this tour was made all the more interesting by our tour guide Chris who told us about the Maori tribes which he was one of Great tour motoring on 90 mile beach excellent fish and chips for lunch overlooking the water fabulous The Kauri trees amazing so much to see and do
Beautiful day. Wonderful trip.
This was a great trip. Crew were very friendly, hospitable and fun. Even though there was no wind on the ride out, we had a great time. I highly recommend this trip to anyone in the area.
Brilliant tour. Exceptional guide. A long but great day. Lunch the only weak point but venue was excellent.
Fabulous, brilliant crew.
Excellent day experience not to be missed. Very friendly staff
This tour was brilliant. It exceeded our expectations. The scenery was breathtaking!
Excellent way to see and experience a very special place
Landing on the Hole in the Rock was a very special experience highly recommended
Great trip out to Cape Brett with Sean in the R44. Clear blue sky and sparkling waters. Great comentary about local history.
Crew were fantastic and friendly, BBq lunch was excellent as was the trip itself.
Was a wonderful day on the water. The old style boat is beautifully maintained and many enjoyed climbing the rigging and sitting way out on the bowsprit. Had a lovely swim to shore when we moored for lunch and the BBQ chicken was delicious. We saw killer whales, fairy penguins, lots of dolphins and many sea birds. A great day out!

Amazing. Great views and a chance to help sailing the ship. Very friendly and knowledgable crew. Lovely lunch. Was great to know the profits go to running trips for young people who could not afford to go otherwise.
Long trip to drive on your own and our tour guide was very informative. Was thankful we hadn't purchased lunch as it was included for free and was a bowl of delicious fish and chips but not worth the purchasing price. Be prepared for a hike as it is quite a walk down to the Lighthouse and even steeper walk back. We needed the full 45 minutes they offered and many on our tour could not attempt. If you have a good camera you can still get great shots from up top .. It was an unbelievable experience to ride 90km per hour for 90 miles on the Beach! Getting out and walking that beautiful stretch was amazing as well!!
