“High speed fun and amazing views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

I went on this trip - well worth it as we're on the water for quite awhile! - in February and it was a warm day. It was easy to walk up and join the tour soon before departure as I was alone (the others in my group who were visiting Auckland had other plans that day; their loss). I don't know our driver's name (Feb21 in the afternoon) but he was great! He was funny, helped everyone have a blast and pointed some interesting places and views on the other side of the Harbor Bridge that I didn't know about and appreciated that. The ride was awesome, fast, did some quick spins that got everyone wet but we were all laughing! You'll get a raincoat and lifejacket but I recommend having a towel and change of clothes in a bag (you can keep your stuff in a locker).

“Loads of Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Thank you so much Julian for a fantastic experience. The ride was a surprise birthday present for our daughter who turned 8 on the day, so together with her two friend and my husband we had a blast! I have never done anything like that before and we will go again, having raved about it to our relatives. They are keen to come along and my older daughter, who missed out on all the fun,( as she was away on camp), will also love it. Julian it's lovely to see you still enjoy your job and you make the whole experience unforgettable. Thank you also to the lady in the office who provided my Mum with a coffee whilst she waited, for us to return with big smiles on our faces. Cheers Rodney, Leanne, Lauren and Emily.
