We were super impressed with the friendly service and amazing food. Top class! The beef and duck were tender and tasty. So worth it going even if only for the creme brulee! We will definitely love to go back on a sunny summer day.

Absolutely spectacular, captain is great makes the experience even more enjoyable. Had healthy fresh lunch and snacks through out the day. Went snorkeling and stopped over on an island for an hour or so to explore. Saw native birds including blue penguins. Boat had ample room, bathroom, changing rooms etc. Was a more personal experience with approx 20 guests ,more bang for your buck! Would 100% recommend and do again.

I treated my parents to this trip as a Christmas present and couldn’t help booking a ticket on bookme to see what it’s all about! I’m so glad I did because it’s up there with one of the best day trips I’ve done in New Zealand. Mike and Melissa are absolutely lovely and all other aspects of the trip are equally great - from the quality and cleanliness of the boat to the delicious fresh food! It’s such good value for money! thank you Mike!

Very relaxed. We saw wildlife like blue penguins, bottle nosed dolphins around and under our boat and even a kiwi on a beautiful island where we stopped for a while! That is really rare. The crew is very friendly and experienced. The captain takes time to talk to everyone. You can lay on the deck and just enjoy the sun or look if you can spot wildlife. Lovely! Lunch and snacks are included. I would definitely recommend this when you are in the bay of islands! A must do!

Absolutely loved my day on Gungha II - Dolphins, snorkelling, lagoons, picture perfect scenery & being allowed to be fully involved in helping crew the boat was fab. Mike’s passion and knowledge of sailing is wonderful and he’s a jovial & friendly gent to spend time with. We had delicious snacks and lunch too. Would highly recommend as it felt like being on my own private trip with a small group of lovely people. And now I really want to learn to sail!! I’d give 10 stars if possible.

The Gungha II sailing adventure was one we really needed and enjoyed after our long drive Auckland; so peaceful and unclouded with other people. Mike, the owner had magificent sailing stories to tell about his trips to South Pacific and down the coast in North America down to South America. Our snorkeling off a deserted island was the highlight of the trip —which I highly recommend over the touristy farm boats.

Perfect way to spend a day on the Bay of Islands and I wouldn’t have wanted to be on any other boat. Everything was perfect, vessel, food, scenery, stopover, walks etc. Mike, the captain, was full of information and has so much experience that you feel instantly safe and in good hands. Best of all you get to learn a lot about the area and a myriad of other things. Worth every penny plus more. Would go out every day if I could, absolutely fantasmagorical :-)

Absolutely loved our day out on the Gungha II! Captain Mike is a great sailor and runs a fantastic tour. Everything from communication beforehand (stayed in Russel and required transfer to Paihia) to day of details (delicious snacks + lunch, snorkel equipment on board as well as hot shower!) were perfect. We departed Paihia on time, points for promptness!, and sailed for about two hours to one of the countless islands. Then we had over an hour to explore the island and/or snorkel/swim. Back on board we ate a delicious lunch; Mike caters to all, vegan and vegetarians included. And then we sailed home. Fantastic day, cannot recommend Mike’s sailing adventure enough!

My husband and I loved our sailing trip. We had fabulous weather and was even able to snorkel when we stopped at Ray Bay to explore the island before lunch. We saw stringrays and fish while snorkeling and dried off by relaxing on the beach. Mike was a great skipper; very knowledgeable, friendly and fun. The lunch and snacks provided where so good and fresh. Thank you for letting us get involved and help hoist the sails :)
