It was relaxing and exciting depending on what you wanted to do! the sailing to the island was relaxing but the captain was a character and was fun to talk to! The island was both beautiful and relaxing but if hiking, kayaking, or swimming fancies you then theres an adventure out there! Also the sandwich and drink given on the... More

We took this tour from a cruise ship in April while visiting the Bay of Islands in New Zealand. When we got on the boat, I was impressed that Dave gave us a safety talk before we sailed. He then had one of the other passengers who had never sailed before, use the wheel to sail the ship. This passenger... More

This tour and guide Dave, were excellent. We met at the dock had a quick introduction to our day and a safety chat and then off we sailed. Those of us that wanted to try our hand at sailing whether it was to steer or help with the rigging were encouraged and others who wanted to just sit and enjoy... More

Day was okay but nothing to write home about. Perhaps it is living off past glories. The snorkelling equipment was mostly broken and needs urgently updating. Lunch was a sandwich and cookie. By far the biggest crumble was the boat was way overcrowded with 16 people. This isn't a cheap day out and they need to cut the numbers to... More

We went on this trip with our daughter and her partner and all really enjoyed the day. Plenty of opportunity to sail the boat if you wanted ( a great boat to try out in a good wind) or just relax . There is plenty of space on deck for chillaxing.The island we stopped at for lunch was good for... More

Thank you to Dave for giving us a great day on the water. It was wonderful for me to relive memories of family sailing holidays on the bay and to introduce my husband to the joy of sailing. To top it off we got to visit one of my favourite beaches! (just wish the weather had been better, such a... More

My parents, fiancé and I had an amazing day sailing with Glen on 'She's a lady'. We all had the chance to get involved with sailing the boat as much as we wanted to and also to just chill out, relax and take in the beautiful scenery. There were enough people on board to make it sociable but not too... More

This sailing trip was organised by a friend as a wedding gift, we couldn't of asked for a better day! Glen was a awesome skipper and had good knowledge of the surrounding area. We went to a sheltered island where we were able to kayak, snorkel, swim and explore the island. Glen provided a nice healthy lunch before the journey... More

It was my first sailing trip but won´t be the last! After snorkeling, kayaking and hikting on a beautiful remote island we had some lunch... More

An incredible day out on the boat with Glen. It was such a relaxing experience and there were kayaks and snorkel gear which we were able to use. Glen prepared a nice, fresh picnic lunch and even let us help out with the sailing portion. The small ship allowed for a more intimate experience, unlike the more crowded tour boats.... More
