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

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
