whistle stop tour of the Bay - fast & fun

This is a smaller boat - we only had 6 people on board, plus the skipper/host so it felt more like on a personal tour. The boat is fast, which was fun. In just over an hour, we... read more

A group of friends and I planned on seeing the islands via the jet ski tours. However, it was poor weather that day and slightly overcast. The instructors insisted that the weather would be fine and we should continue on with our jet ski. It was absolutely freezing out on the water and we were being thrown around by the... More

Having been to Paihia many times and doing almost all of the different cruises and tours at least once, the Tango Jetski Tour was one I was yet to encounter. Seems I saved the best for last! My partner and I hired one ski for the 3hr tour to Hole in the Rock. Due to the weather we didn't make... More

We hired 4 skis for 7 of us and had an absolutley amazing time hooning around the most beautiful part of NZ. Dave was a great guide, friendly, informative and very accommodating for those less confident. Awesome idea for a team bonding day. We had them for 2.5 hours which gave everyone a turn to drive and stopped for lunch... More

If you are near or in the town of Pahia. You must book a tour, my guide Erica was outstanding. She took me to a lot of the islands and described the back story each time we stopped. We were also joined by a pod of dolphins toward the end of the tour. Thank you Tango Jet Ski Tours.

Just spent 12 days on New Zealand with many great experiences. The Tango Jet Ski Tour was at top of list. It was so much fun to see the Bay of Islands in this manner. We covered a lot of territory in our 2.5 hour tour. Guide was informative and the scenery was gorgeous. Highly recommended.

I bought my partner an hour jet ski tour for Christmas and I just had to come along too (why not eh?). We had Dave as a tour guide and he was fantastic. Not only is he understanding when you don't pick up the controls right away but is also a really great guide. We went around a number of... More

We've had a holiday home in Paihia for over 30 years and so have had plenty of opportunity to sample the various tour opportunities which leave from Paihia and Russell. This is the first chance I've had to see The Hole in The Rock from a jet ski and I have to say it is certainly the best way to... More

Was really looking forward to this jet ski trip, which came highly recommended by my friends from NZ. We went in a group with said friends and the actual jet skiing was great fun, and in an absolutely fantastic setting. Unfortunately we found Donna to be exceptionally rude. She made several very unkind comments about members of the group to... More
