A very relaxed and informative excursion, perhaps one of the best excursions my wife and I have experienced. Our guide Paul made the whole experience very personal, with some lovely stories and anecdotes. We learned much about the Maori culture and history of New Zealand. It was a great way to see Auckland in a short time, had great views from Mount Eden. The Winter Gardens were special, especially learning about the Silver Fern. My wife and I would thoroughly recommend this type of excursion.

We booked the afternoon tour for the 27th Feb and turned out to be very lucky as we quickly saw lots of common dolphins. The crew were all excellent at sharing valuable and interesting information. All of which was presented in a good humorous style. They encouraged questions about their research and ocean and mammals. We then were incredibly lucky to see a Brydes whale for a good period of time. Highly recommend this tour, the time passed very quickly and we were very well looked after

Experienced informative crew. Saw plenty of dolphins in their natural element at close quarters. No whales as e were told really wrong time of year so no 5 star. Wear sun hats, sun cream and watch out for the wash from bows when they dig in. Listen and learn from the crew.

This excursion was so awesome. The Captain was local and very knowledgeable about the history of the harbor and surrounding areas. The 2 lady crew members were helpful and upbeat. The food and wine was lovely. We really enjoyed the cruise and the ambience.

Guide was knowledgeable and very fun. He made sure even with bad traffic that he used our time wisely. Gave us suggestions of places to go and things to do for the rest of the day. Really enjoyed the tour
