    A Night of Dinner and Harbour Cruise

    It was a perfect way to end my young son's birthday and the weekend and what a perfect night of cruising and delicious and mouth watering entrees and dinner. The crews on board hospitality was outstanding and engaging and my little boy even got to drive the boat which is a rare experience and he couldn't stop talking about it, thank you everyone for your exceptional kiwi hospitality even for us local, cheers and all the best with your many adventures.

    Fantastic evening

    Everything about this trip was great. Booked it online and got an immediate response when I forgot to give meal choices. Staff at Explore at the harbour were so helpful.and friendly. Skipper Charles and his crew gave us a fantastic evening. First time.on a sailing boat for me and I loved it. We were able to sail into the setting sun. Food was all as described and very tasty - its not a huge meal but just right. Had a nice group of people on board - great evening -thanks guys!
