What people are saying about Cape Brett Peninsula

Great cruise with interesting commentary

Sadly, due to the bad weather overnight, it was too rough for the boat to get out ot the hole in the rock, so we had to spend the rest of the trip cruising around the bay looking for dolphins. Unfortunately, the pod that had been seen the day before were nowhere to be found, but we did find large flocks of seabirds (gannets, shearwaters and the odd booby) diving for fish. They were fantastic to watch. The rest of the cruise, stopping to deliver mail to some of the islands and seeing the amazing Black Rock Islands was really good too. Would have given a rating of Excellent if we'd made it to the rock or seen dolphins or whales, but the cruise operators were not at fault and did their best given the weather. An added bonus is that we were given a ticket for a free trip another time. We'll definitely be taking them up on that and will bring the children next time.

We enjoyed a lovely day in the bay with a wonderful skipper

This was a wonderful trip. The skipper has the flexibility of shifting the order of the day to match things like dolphin sightings. She was very informative and welcoming. Her crew was great as well. We didn't get to swim with the dolphins only because the only pod we kept seeing had babies in it. We did get to set quite a bit of activity. We would highly recommend this trip

Very good, excellent value, great engaging and caring staff

This trip more than met our expectations. Very knowledgeable and caring staff. The trip never seemed rushed, even when watching the dolphins. The expertise of the captain in going through the hole in the Rock was excellent. Highly recommended and great value for money trip.

A wonderful reminder of our heritage and wonderful land.

Great historical facts and a wonderful introduction to nz history for my Aussie guests.
