Great service, easy to contact and find, very informative upon arrival. Was dropped off at Bark Bay by friendly boat driver, even brought us out of the way to show us Split Apple Rock, really sweet!

Great sightseeing on the boat in the National Park; then a really nice walk of about three hours, then picked up 15 further, all very well organised, with pickup in the morning from the i-Site.

Ein toller Ausflug trotzdem es zeitweise geregnet hat - wir haben viele Robben und auch Delphine gesehen. Die Crew hat sich wunderbar gekümmert.

Beautiful trip along the National Park. Good commentary from the captain. Although we were late he went slow so that the dolphins could join us and swim near the boat.

Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.

Provided more than just transfers with showing us seals and Split Apple Rock. Seemed expensive at $65 to $70, but great staff, with great knowledge.

Good punctual service. Stops at all major bays. Gives some nice explanation along the way and some great jokes. Would definitely recommend this water shuttle.

Takes you to inaccessible beaches, where you can have a walk. They do a nice guided tour along some seal colonies on the way there.

Our online booking went wrong, but we got our tickets anyway. A nice trip - but we would like more information from both the ticket office and the captain.
