To and from Charlotte Track; day walk, good and less expensive, friendly staff, long way back due to a lot of other transports (backpackers and staff).

Competitive price. Very helpful and informative skipper (Julian), nice catamaran. Walked 10km of Queen Charlotte Track - wonderful area. Unplanned dolphin experience!

A great little system that allows backpackers to walk the Queen Charlotte Track hassel free. The boat cost $53 each and pick us up from Anakiwa on time. The captain also turned around on the way back to allow us to see dolphins. Awesome!
