We did this as a cruise ship tour and it was well worth it. Marie was very friendly and informative with local knowledge and customs. Beautiful tour along the Lagoon, enjoyed every minute. Even included a free alcohol or soft drink. Highly recommended.

A wonderful tour for young and old, even for those who find it hard to walk, with lots of local information from Marie, especially her talk on the Mother Hubbard dress, and local customs. With very clean amenities. We toured in September 2014. Janet K

We had a wonderful morning on board the barge with a excellent native guide. We toured the lagoon for three hours.

Great fun. Barbecue and beer on board a basic barge in beautiful surroundings run by a friendly ex-pat Kiwi and his wife. Great for swimming, including jumping off the roof and the odd tree, and just relaxing.
