This is a great way to see the Maori rock carvings in a relaxed environment with a much less touristy vibe. Comfy bean bags with pizza and beer/wine and sort drinks are all available on board. Highly recommended would do again !

This experience was everything we wanted. Dave and the crew were friendly and made the trip very, very comfortable. The scenery was breathtaking. We watched snow capped mountains in the sunset. Lots of great local knowledge. Thanks Dave and crew for a spectacular experience.
