What people are saying about Paihia

Semplicemente magnifica. Simply wonderful.

The cruise with Adam and Blue has been simply wonderful. A friend who had done it a couple of weeks ago had recommended it very warmly because the boat was small, the approach to nature respectful, and the people extremely nice. The group (about 15 people) was nice, Adam and Blue are simply wonderful people who really love what they are doing. Their philosophy is: if we see dolphins we are going to stop to observe them, but we are not going to chase them. And dolphins we did meet. And we stopped. And observed them. And they played around our boat for about 15 minutes. We visited two islands, both astoundingly beautiful. On the second we stopped for a couple of hours, paddle boarding and snorkeling (they provide all the equipment), and it was heaven. We were the only people on the island, so you could hear cicadas and the sea. The rest was silence. Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful. Our daughter and I are telling people this was one of the most beautiful day in our lives. Tks Adam & Blue

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.

Rachael M., exceptional narration throughout the entire trip.

As a retired tour driver, I was very pleased to have had Rachael providing a very complete narration for the day. She not only covered the sights we saw, she also shed light on the history of the area and the political significance of the people involved in the area's historical past. She was also well versed in the flora and fauna that we encountered throughout the tour. She had a great sense of humor that kept everyone wanting to hear more. Lastly, she displayed genuine concern for our safety while on tour.

Brilliant tour - don't bother with anything else!

My partner and I had a great day out on this tour. Lin was a great guide, relaxed and made everyone feel comfortable. He was really knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife we encountered. Bonus that we saw both penguins and dolphins throughout the day. The stops at the two islands was a perfect addition to the tours around the islands. This tour is a beautiful way to see the Bay of Islands. Don't miss it!!

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
