New and different

A welcome addition to interesting and enjoyable things to do on the West Coast. Terrain like this is not that common in NZ so being able to get up close to it in a boat is great. Birdwatchers especially will gain from it. A highly recommended alternative to charging around in a jet boat (although that's fun too).

A Great Tour!

I enjoyed a wonderful afteroon on this boat tour. The landscape was breathtaking (especially in the weather). It was unique to other tours have done in the past. It might not be, the longes trip you take, but its just right. Experience some rain forest by boat and hear some of the local storys about the area.

Beauty beyond compare!

This was a 90 min magical ride! This sunset boat cruise is a must do, must see! Totally relaxing and mind-blowing! The scenery, the flora and fauna, the crisp fresh air, the sunset, the canopy trees, the sacred Mahinapua lake, the backdrop of the Southern Alps...the best of NZs here! We enjoyed every bit of this tour, thanks to our amazing boatman who kept us entertained all the way up and down! Well worth your money guys if you are one for magic, nature and history!
