If you're considering it - just book it now. We had even more fun than we expected and we expected a lot. Great team, great boat, a great adventure. We've come home feeling like we had a real holiday after just 22 hours on the boat. It felt like a week in the best possible way. Thanks guys - you truly do rock!

I place I fell in love with NZ. The most amazing thing I did on my month trip to New Zealand.TheJills, USA

I came on this as a optional extra with my top deck tour... This would have to have been one of the best 22 hours in my life I had such a great time especially with the night kayaking seeing all the stars and the water that lights up..... The crew put on many fun activities are are all so friendly the really do a great job.... I would have happily paid double for this experience it was worth every cent I'm coming to do the north and south island with a friend in April I will be doing this again for sure as I had such a great time......... THANKS GUYS!!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDMiska Dombroski

The Rock was one of the first things I had the pleasure of experiencing when I moved to Paihia in January and I have been raving about it ever since!Charlotte
