“Very accomodating”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

We used the Ferry for our wedding at the Boulder Bank lighthouse. We had a rehearsal trip on the Friday, a set up trip on Saturday morning and then 4 trips Saturday afternoon to get the 100 guests to the lighthouse and 4 to get them all back. Bruce was very accommodating, super friendly and professional. The Ferry was perfect for our large group and added to the atmosphere of our day.

“Kayak hire”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

We hired a twin, ride-on kayak to enjoy a sunny afternoon in Nelson. The kayak was good quality, hiring was really easy and good value ($60 for 2 hours). The chap we hired from was really friendly and gave us good advice about where to go/what to do. It was a relaxed trip and we enjoyed afternoon tea on the island. We were even able to take our little dog with us so it was a real family outing!!

“Goes out of his way to help”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We booked the Ferry to help with a wedding at the Lighthouse. Bruce was fantastic to work with! Even though the weather was creating some challenges, he was clearly focussed on safety first. It's a great way to get to Haulashore Island and the Lighthouse.

“Haulashore ferry”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Good service for a very short trip...thats all one needs! When you get there, nice place to have a picnic and a swim. But you could just do that on the mainland" beach too!

“thoroughly recommend”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

booked in advance and met by the owner, Bruce at Wakefield Quay, he was.very friendly,considerate and knowledgeable.2 slightly handicapped passengers were able to get on and off the ferry easily. fantastic weather and saw Nelson from a different perspective. 2 of us enjoyed going ashore at the lighthouse on Boulder Bank and climbed to the top. Loved seeing the very traditional real kiwi baches on the bank. interesting birdlife and altogether a top value experience
