Amazing!! 10/10

This was the best experience we could have asked for! Russel and Karen are amazing hosts, friendly, knowledgeable and so hospitable. The dinner and desert were beautiful and plentiful. Desert was just right. We were out on the water for sunset and then as the city lights came on, stunning views. I’d recommend this cruise to anyone. Thank you Russel and Karen :)

Amazing!

Very friendly captain and his wife, we had an amazing time sailing in the harbour. We were extremely lucky to be greeted by a pod of orcas cruising next to us for a long time. The food cooked on board was delicious and very copious, and beverages are at very reasonable price. I will happily do it again, over and over again

HI Alex thank you so much for making the time to review..........for a young business it really helps. We were lucky with the Orca. I thought they were waiting under the harbour bridge for the Bungy Jumpers. We would love to see you aboard for the Bay of Islands Trip...........it really is fabulous. All the Best, Russell and Karen

HI Kaila, Thanks for a great review, we loved having you aboard. Nice pic of the Orca - Do you think they were waiting under the bridge for the bungy jumpers. Try to join us over summer in the Bay of Islands- it really is a special day out. All the best, Russell & Karen

HI Sala, you have to love it when a plan comes together - and yours did - despite the bridge traffic chaos. Very odd to see a pod of Orca under the harbour bridge. Do you think they were waiting for the Bungy Jumpers for dinner !!... I reallllly appreciate the time to review. All the best. Maybe we will see you in the Bay of Islands for a cruise over summer., Russell
