Crew was welcoming and comedic. Me and my friend aren’t from Auckland so they told us about everything we seen from the boats, the houses, to the stars, very lovely food and company. Was gorgeous out on the water at sunset with a huge full moon rising it was a magical experience, even seen a few shooting stars! They have blankets on board for when it gets chilly although I do recommend bringing a jacket and dressing warm! You’ll thank yourself for it.

Great evening out on the water (but do dress warm as it gets chilly). It was really nice just being able to moving about the boat and enjoy the scenery. Crew were accomodating and food was delicious - we had the chicken and steak, definitely recommend as it was well worth the money.
