I had a really great time aboard the Rock. Well organized, safe, and lots of cool activities on the ship. Kayaking, Snorkeling, target shooting, fishing, great food and the staff was simply amazing! Thanks Melissa, Norm, and the rest of the crew for making this a memorable experience. Will definitely recommend it to anyone staying around the Bay of Islands.

We went on the Rock after reading about it in the guidebook, and a recommendation from a previous traveler.
It was beyond all our expectations!
First off we felt that it was incredibly well run and organised, with all the activities occurring seamlessly. The crew were full of enthusiasm and local knowledge, making not only for a fun but also a well informed trip! They were friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
We felt that the trip was full of things to do, but also plenty of relaxation time. It in no way felt as if the fun was forced and allowed all the guests, of all ages, to engage as and when they wished.
So many highlights, but particulars for us were the night kayaking, the fishing and the trip to Robertson island, where we were very impressed by Ryan's stories and local knowledge!

The food was outstanding, with steak cooked to order on the barbie!

The only downside to the trip was that we didn't see any dolphins! But the trip itself made up for that.

The cabins were comfortable and all you needed for a short sleep.

Notes: the shower really is only to rinse off, and the toilets can have queues at times!

We would highly recommend this to all ages, couples, groups and individuals. Everyone on the boat with us had a fantastic time.
Lastly the value for money is superb, so many activities that you would otherwise pay a lot for individually.
