This was definitely the highlight of my trip in NZ! I absolutely loved the cruise and still talk about it to everyone as the highlight of my trip! So many fun activities! Fishing, night time kayaking, snorkelling and exploring an island plus many more! It was a very unique experience with friendly and passionate crew who instantly shared their passion and love for their time on the cruise! Amazing experience that really brings people together through travel :)Lara M
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
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!
