What people are saying about Paihia

I had such a great day on the Kopiko! Luke is a great host and captain and we had a very relaxing day on the water and on the island. We learned a lot about the area and I was eager to learn a bit about sailing so Luke taught me some of that too! The island we went to was quiet and calm and we basically had it to ourselves. The lunch sandwich and snacks were really good, the hospitality on the boat was great too. We walked a bit on the island and enjoyed the beach, a swim and some paddle boarding. Bean bags on the catamaran were great to relax on. Over all a 5-star experience I would happily recommend to anyone!

Fantastic experience! Unfortunately due to weather we were unable to visit the Hole in Rock. However the crew accommodated and I appreciate the decision you made in order to keep us safe. The captain Teina made it a wonderful experience. Beautiful scenery, insightful commentary and a great full value for money. Highly recommend!

Great guided tour. Informative and helpful Staff onboard. Not many seats out the upper deck if the boat, which affective visibility. We didn’t see any dolphins or whales. But were offered another cruise. Loved the hole in the rock, excellent skills to manoeuvre through the archway by the captain.

Really good but due to swell and water movement the boat could not go through the hole. Also we sat on top observation deck which was too high really to see out front of boat. Recommend you sit on middle or lower deck. We did see the dolphins though

It was a windy , wet day. Rough sea but the captain was awesome. He got us so close to the rock despite the waves which were huge! Great skill. The dolphins were amazing .
