What You Can Expect
A great day and well worth it. Getting to see isolated bays you can't approach from land.
Crew very friendly and informative.
Fabulous day out despite changes to date because of bad weather - communicated this well and fitted us in the following day
Lunch tasty but not generous , particularly for vegetarians
Great experience, fun climbing the rigging. Very good BBQ chicken lunch. Friendly and helpful crew.
A great introduction to what New Zealand has to offer. Great views seen in the quiet of sail rather than noise of motor power. Steve and crew kept us entertained and the bbq lunch was excellent.
Had a wonderful ship ride with a friendly crew, delicious food on a great boat!
One of the best days I have ever had. Professional and fun crew made everyone feel at ease - what an awesome day!
The cruise and crew were amazing. The trip to an uninhabited island was interesting. We had a very nice lunch of chicken and salad. Climbing the mast was made easy and fun. Great day!
A great trip. The crew were wonderful, the lunch really tasty and it was the highlight of our trip to the Bay of Islands. My husband got to climb the rigging. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
We had a great time with the crew and captain. My wife Bonnie climbed the rigging I was chicken, we had an awesome lunch, a great hike and a great experience. The icing on the cake was when three killer whales swam along side of us and gave us some terrific photos. We recommend this trip to anyone and will go again when we return to New Zealand next year.
Excellent crew and experience
