Fun way to see the coast! Had an awesome ride-a bit of wind and swell! Haha! Super captain! So awesome to get in close to the coves, caves and shore-see all the fish in the reserve. Well worth it! You might have to hang on! Haha!! Reslly professional, safe and well organised!

Good Day Out Most enjoyable and informative trip around the area, seeing Cathedral Cove and various caves and blowholes. Seeing the snapper in their habitat was great, and seeing the destruction of habitat by kina was concerning... The Marine Reserve is a good thing. Went out with a nice group of people. Steve and Julian were our guides - Typical kiwi guys, but felt some of Steve’s comments were a bit on the edge of appropriateness before we left the harbour...

A very enjoyable experience On Mon 23 Nov we ( 2 couples) rang to see if we could book a trip. The weather forecast was not wonderful and the company was going to cancel its trips for the day. As it was still very calm they kindly decided that the morning trip would run and we had a very enjoyable morning seeing the sights and all the fish. We were well looked after by Cam and he shared his extensive knowledge of the area with us. The fact that the boat had a glass bottom with great viewing was a distinct plus. These boats are also covered to ensure that we would not get either wet in times of rain or sunburned. We would definitely recommend this company.

Amazing, Well priced, Good for children 3 and above. An amazing good quality well priced experience. Very professional staff and operation from booking to end. Highly recommend. Cam and Kate our guides were brilliant and very knowledgeable. Such a beautiful part of the world where being on the water gave us a different perspective especially looking through the glass bottom of the boat and seeing the marine life. My children 3 and 6 absolutely Loved it too. Thanks Guys

Great trip to see above & below water A great 2 hour trip exploring another piece of paradise. Have visited this area a few times but never been fortunate enough to explore from the water, certainly a great way to see and appreciate such a beautiful coastline. Steve was our skipper & guide, very informative and knowledgable and was great at sharing this in a fun way. So pleased we chose the glass bottom trip, the highlight as a non diver was seeing the sea life through the glass bottom (wasn't snorkelling weather) and seeing what a difference a Marine Reserve makes . Many Thanks team Highly Recommend this trip and wish you well fro the upcoming season. Don & Robyn

Awesome It was a beautiful warm day with no wind and flat sea's. Ash was our skipper and for a young guy was informative, funny and all round a great asset to the company. I see why i can't catch any snapper where i live cause they are all in Mercury bay in the Marine reserve.? Would highly recommend this trip.
