    Prepare yourself for a wild ride! The coastal scenery is absolutely stunning. We loved the peeks into mysterious caves, the soaring cliffs, and spying lazy seals and swooping sea birds. We were not expecting such a heart-thumping adventure upon the giant swells of the Tasman sea. But, we felt safe and enjoyed every minute... even the cold and wet ones.

    A wonderful experience for us. Worth the money spent! We watched a whale hunting other small fishes, so many dolphins, jellyfish, seals, and a person slack lining(!!!). staff were friendly and considerate. Not sure if young kids <4 yr old would be greatly entertained. But our kid just stayed at the back of the boat and even slept off for a bit!

    Thus was really awesome, saw seal, dolphins, and the scenery if the cliffs were amazing. Our wondeeful skipper had a family emergency and our outing was cut a bit short, no one was bothered by this bot when we got back to the office, the comany gave us quite a bit of our money back. This was a surprise and not necessary as we didnt feel like we missed out. Great company, great staff.
