What people are saying about Auckland

Very Professional Excursion, Would Highly Recommend

Unfortunately we didn't get to see any whales on the day that we went out, they simply weren't making themselves available. However, we did see hundreds of dolphins. Seeing dolphins out in their natural habitat is just incredible, it took a bit of time to find them on the day that we were out, but it was well worth the wait. The captain of the boat could not have worked harder to find them out in the open ocean, the whole trip was very professional from start to finish. I would definitely go out again in the hope of finding whales next time.

Great one day trip, educational and relaxing

We have taken the tour to the Rangitoto Island from Auckland recently. The tour is very well organized, the guides on the island were very knowledgeable and passionate about preservation and environment. The weather cooperated nicely and we were able to see a lot and take several hiking paths. The most amazing thing was to see very rare birds, trees and how much is being done to preserve such treasures.

Great wines and food with wonderful guide!!

We had a great small group so we had plenty of time to visit about our different countries and families. The vineyards were wonderful and very informative with delicious wines. The restaurant where we ate had fabulous food and wine. Our guide was very funny and knew so much about wine and Waiheke Island! Really enjoyed him. Left with a happy heart and full stomach!!! A must do tour!

The experience was exceptional; the crew professional and informative.

We did end up seeing pygmy blue whales and a bryde’s whale, along with several dolphins, and even penguins! The crew was extremely well-informed and informative. They took two samples of phytoplankton and zooplankton, and explained their environmental importance. It was an altogether engaging and memorable experience.

Great tour with beautiful Dolphins centre stage

We loved this tour. The coach driver commentary was entertaining and lovely jokes too! So beautiful boat cruise and the Dolphins were of course the star of the show. Bit windy and my hat went flying, but I grabbed it before it flew overboard!
