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!

It was a long day, and the bus driver was great. It was amazing how he could maneuver that huge bus on those winding roads while also offering running commentary. I had a little trouble understanding theNew Zealand accent through the sound system, but that is not his fault. The ride down the beach at low tide was cool, and the opportunity to try sand surfing was a challenge. It was a lovely day to see Cape Reinga as well. The barbecue was just okay—steak precooked and a bit stringy—but sides were fine, and it gave us a chance to see what the locals do.

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!

Was my first time in a helicopter and it was awesome. Unfortunately the weather came in so we were not able to get to the hole in the rock but managed to see a lot more other Islands. Dan our pilot was very knowledgeable

Totally fantastic experience. Saw lots of dolphins, cruised through the Hole in the Rock, scenery was amazing, staff were awesome, just a fantastic afternoon in The Bay of Islands. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
