Spent an excellent 2 hours with Justin on his brand new tour boat to Cathedral Cove and around the coast. Even saw a couple of dolphins and some penguins while on our way there. I can thoroughly recommend this tour.

Boat is fast and comfortable and importantly, has good shade. Tully is a skilled driver and knowledgeable guide. Covered a good distance of the coastline. Snorkeling slightly disappointing as we only saw snapper. Rated as 4*, as a little expensive for this length of trip.

As it was our last day in NZ, we had decided to do a boat tour from Whitianga. Called to the iSite for help the day before and with my fair skin, they recommended the covered boat... were we glad they recommended Ocean Leopard Tours!...More

Hi sarath k, thank you for your question, it's one we get asked quite a bit. We love animals but I'm afraid on the Ocean Leopard we do not allow pets. This is really out of respect to other customers who may have allergies... More
