What people are saying about Coromandel Peninsula

Justin at the helm was knowledgable friendly supportive and the ultimate professional. He handled all the passengers and their various questions and needs brilliantly. Perfect tour to do ... see the sights ... hear the history .... feed the fish ... then swim and snorkel with them. Justin was bread and born on this coast and will share his boy to man story’s with you of his adventures. I think he might be a merman

Fantastic boat trip, the guide was very knowledgeable, no need to go on the opposition's boat (glass boat) as the water is so clear in the reserve marina you look over the side and can see the fish! The boat trip was worth every cent and more. Would highly recommend.
