The Rock Crew are comprised of passionate, young or simply young-at-heart adventurers who make it their mission to put every guest who steps aboard The Rock at ease within moments, and feel like friends by the time we transfer you back to wharf.
Join us? - We have completed our recruitment for this season, however if you think you can add something special to The Rock Adventure Cruise get in touch and ask for Jonny
Skipper Timo, aka 'Team-O', is always keen for new adventures and fun in life. After finishing college, he began living and working in various places around the world, from managing coffee houses, to rounding up buffalo, to building houses. Now living in the beautiful Bay of Islands he feels the most at home. Embracing the abundance of goodness, entranced by the ocean and all its wonder, Timo can almost always be found on and in it. He is always keen to swap stories and share a laugh.
Skipper Nic spent most of his school years in Rotorua with a strong interest in sports, particularly basketball and athletics. This interest led him to Auckland where he completed a conjoint degree in Sport and Exercise Science and Sport Business Management. In the near future he wishes to experience more of the world through work and travel, gain his SCUBA certificate and, as a keen freediver, increase his active breathhold.
Jonny grew up in England, with a strong passion for the outdoors. He decided that the weekends were not enough to pursue his passions, so left to go travelling. Spending seven years in SE Asia, he now lives in NZ with his wife Sarah and their daughter Scarlett,
he is passionate about the tourism industry and if you don’t find him at The Rock, he will either be with the Paihia Volunteer Fire Brigade or out on a trail, running.
Would do it again without a doubt! I did this on Wednesday and had the best time!Beeb93
I place I fell in love with NZ. The most amazing thing I did on my month trip to New Zealand.TheJills, USA
Rock the Boat NZ! This overnight trip is great fun and well worth doing, particularly if travelling in a large group.Charlie G
We took a group of 25 international students from a high school on the overnight cruise. This is the second time we have done the overnight cruise, as the first group we took also thoroughly enjoyed it. When you leave Paihia you travel out to one of the Islands to anchor overnight. You get to shoot paint balls at a fake duck they tow behind the boat, go fishing, go night kayaking and swimming. The night kayaking was the students favourite part as we got to see the Bioluminescent Algae which was amazing and a once in a lifetime experience!Nicole
