    Great trip with young family!

    The crew of Kewpie couldn't be nicer. They are genuine good people and nothing was too much trouble. From helping us haul our buggy on board, to knowledgeably pointing out places of interest in the harbour. We got off at Matakana Island for an hour which was tranquil and relaxing (if I was doing it again I would take some insect repellent). We were a young family with a 3 and 6 month old. A great trip to do for all the family.
