    Night onboard the Vigilante

    Myself, my partner and our two friends booked the overnight trip onboard the Vigilante before we went to the Bay of Islands for a holiday. It was by far the highlight of our trip. Nik was a fantastic Skipper who catered to our every need. We were able to enjoy fishing, even catching a King Fish for our dinner, kayaking, exploring the islands and sailing. The two boys were thrilled to try their hand at sailing. I would highly recommend the overnight trip as its ax experience of a lifetime.

    Beautiful Boating

    Fantastic experience and such a lovely boat. Nik (tour guide, skipper, chef and all round great guy) was an amazing host as we toured the Bay of Islands. The boat was a good size for us, 3 people plus Nik, and could probably hold up to 5 guests and Nik comfortably. Over the day and a half we went walking, kayaking, fishing and lots of sailing, and had a blast doing all of this. I would recommend going on this overnight adventure.
