TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

MARINE LIFE

Our vessels allow you to get up close and personal with the abundant marine life in the area.

Dolphins, seals and little blue penguins are magical when they take time out of their busy schedules to visit us in the bay. Smell the seaweed, watch gannets dive headlong around the islands, reach and touch the rainbow coloured rock formations and hear stories of Maori encampments!

CATHEDRAL COVE

One of the TOP 12 MUST-DO Experiences in New Zealand

Visiting world famous Cathedral Cove and it’s surrounding coastal scenery is a must! Exploring via boat also saves you the 1.5 hour round trip hike to get there.

BLOWHOLE

Truly a magical place!

At high tide and 2 hours either side, the tour visits a breathtaking hidden blowhole,  venturing through a sea cave underground into a gigantic rock cylinder 80 feet high.
