Great evening out on the water (but do dress warm as it gets chilly). It was really nice just being able to moving about the boat and enjoy the scenery. Crew were accomodating and food was delicious - we had the chicken and steak, definitely recommend as it was well worth the money.

An excellent experience. The evening weather was beautiful very romantic setting sun. The crew were wonderful. Very typical “kiwi” young people laid back and happy for us to walk around the boat to enjoy the experience. They engaged the passengers in conversation and were humorous and easy going. This trip was a 70th birthday present for my husband and he loved it.

It’s unfair to sell this idea in winter, it’s impossible to get proper picture memories , no matter how much clothing you have on, it’s freezing etc , I don’t know how I feel but I wish I had used my money on something else
