Got there & the the place was buzzing. We were obvious travellers but most of the crowd were young city workers - we still felt comfortable. Started with a tasting board of craft beers for $20 & asked the barman to choose. We weren't disappointed with the selection. Behemoth Triple Chocolate Stout was my favourite & my partner loved the Tuatara Hefe. Meals didn't take long to arrive & again we weren't disappointed! Surf & turf grill plates & our son had chicken. Presented well & a real sense of theatre with the delicious, tender meat, on the stone in front of us. We could play around with the cooking of each slice of meat as we cooked it ourselves. A great meal, enjoyed by all of us!

Perfect customer service. My hire was fuss-free and seamless. My bike was ready waiting for me. I just had to hand over photo ID. No forms to fill out. Good to go. :) And the friendly guy on the desk was super helpful. He offered me some sun cream as I'd forgotten mine and made sure I had their number in case I got a flat tyre. Very happy customer :)

A great place to reinforce learning for a child who has learnt about space. A lot of interactive areas for kids. I wouldn't recommend the 45min show (a movie and information about the stars and constellations) for young toddlers - should be a warning/recommendation I think. Other than that, was an awesome place for all ages. Great to spend a day exploring the gardens, tram riding and also Space Place ☺️

Seeing the harbour from the front of the Megisti was amazing, even on an overcast day. The crew were fun and so welcoming. This cruise is something I will return to do again and again, and I’ll be bringing everyone with me that I can! Thank you for an incredible experience Megisti!

I booked this last minute for my boyfriend's Birthday as another plan had fallen through... my boyfriend is a leap year baby so I had to make sure to pull out all the stops! And boy oh boy... this experience did not disappoint. It was spectacular from start to finish. We are a mid-20's couple who are very adventurous (we mountain bike, snow-board, surf-board and run 1/2 marathon's regularly) so we are always looking for a new adventurous experience. This ticked every box. A wonderful and charismatic team, who provide such a high-energy throughout the whole experience. A wonderful and friendly Dalmatian. A beautifully clean and loved vessel. And to top it all off a well equipped bar! It was everything and more we could have wished for. Thank you again guys for providing this experience, we do already recommend it to everybody...but especially once lock-down is over- treat yourself to this wonderful experience! :)

My hubby and I are on holiday from South Africa and really want to experience as much of Wellington as we can and booked the Days Bay trip as one of our adventures. Wow..... The crew was brilliant, helpful and friendly. That ferry glided over the water so smoothly even in the wake of a much bigger boats, anchored by both docks swiftly and my elderly husband with severe osteoporosis in the knees where assisted on and off. WELL DONE EAST BY WEST FERRIES. By the way the lady in the office is a just as great.
