By far our best sight seeing adventure in NZ
We loved this. The crew were fantastic on the boat, very friendly and welcoming. We saw dolphins and calfs swimming next to the boat, as well as seals. Buster the dog was the main attraction for youngest who just wanted to watch him find the dolphins. He was so good letting him sit and stroke him! We thought this was a brilliant morning out and would highly recommend and would go again ourselves.

The home baked cookies at the end were the perfect end to the trip. Thanks to all the crew for making it a great trip.

Fantastic
This was such a great tour and definitely worth doing if you are in the area. The staff were fantastic and genuinely friendly and accommodating. We saw lots of dolphins and seals which was great!

Awesome experience
We had excellent weather for our tour on August 31st (clear blue skies) but are more than confident that even with pouring rain this would have been one of the highlights of our entire holiday. As practically everyone else has mentioned, we were met by a team of three: Bainzy, George and the eyes and ears of the crew, Jet the dog.

Simply the best!
Over several years on many holidays we have taken similar trips. I don't believe we've enjoyed a better one. Small family firm with a real consideration to service from the office staff to Stew and George on the boat. Informative commentary throughout. Complimentary drinks before departure was a nice touch as were the homemade cookies mid trip. Extra coats available for those feeling the chill as the wind got up mid trip. Nice boat too. Newish and not too big making viewing easy. The other star was Buster the dog who showed an unerring ability to anticipate where dolphins would appear (all in the pitch of the dolphins communication apparently!). We had a playful pod of dolphins appear and also saw fur seals and penguins on the trip as well as various sea birds. Good value and worth looking out for if you are heading out that way.

So good we did it twice!
A wonderful 2 hour cruise for fantastic sightings of Hectors Dolphins, blue penguins and seals with their pups splashing in rock pools. Jet, the dog, was brilliant at listening out for the Dolphins and guiding us in the right direction for the best sightings. Many sea birds, wonderful scenery and great commentary.
We loved it so much we signed up again for the afternoon tour.
