It was a great trip. Plenty of variety with an excellent commentary from the captain. See a group of dolphins out by The Hole in the Rock was a highlight!

Fantastic to see the pod of dolphins and hearing all the knowledge known from the very friendly staff. Pity about the weather but well manoeuvred by the pilot.

going through the hole in the rock was a close fit for the skipper so we were amazed going right through and out the other side. even though we didn't get to see any dolphins or whales we did see a flying fish that surprised us because we hadn't seen one before.

Kia Ora Bryan, The skippers are very good at getting the vessels through the Hole in the Rock that's for sure. What an added bonus of seeing a flying fish too! Cheers, Anna and the team at GreatSights

We had a great day with perfect conditions for those like me that get sea sick. The captain was great. I loved his sense of humour thrown in amongst some informative history of the area. Really worthwhile!
