The crew all welcomed us and remembered everyone's name from first introductions. We went snorkelling and caught Kina, which we ate afterwards. Free tea and coffee.

Incredible experience, the friendliest staff who worked super hard to make you feel at home. Loved snorkelling for Kina and was even brave enough to try it. The Bay of Islands is a must see and this trip was best way to see it. Rather than a rushed day trip, this trip meant you got the best of both worlds, seeing the islands at sunset and sunrise, as well as visiting Roberton Island and climbing up for panoramic views. Just do it!!

The Rock Adventure Cruise responds:

Dear Geraldine,
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. You're braver than most, kina is an acquired taste! We are certainly in a privileged position as the only overnight cruise in the Bay of Islands and I'm glad that your experience exceeded expectations; we aim to please and of course hope to see you aboard again some time.
Kind Regards,
Amy - The Rock Adventure Cruise

Overnight trip on the boat. All activities were great and the boat was amazing.

The Rock Adventure Cruise responds:

Dear Jess,
It means a lot that you would take the time to write this review. How fantastic that you enjoyed the cruise as much as we enjoyed hosting you! To see 10/10 and such a positive endorsement of the activities and The Rock makes all of our hard work worthwhile. I hope you enjoyed the remainder of your time in NZ and hope to see you aboard again some time.
Kind Regards,

Awesome crew, very friendly. Excellent attention to detail, got to know everyone's name. Activities were great. Fantastic value for money.

The Rock Adventure Cruise responds:

Dear Amanda,
Another 10/10, we must be doing something right! Thank you so much for writing this review, I showed the crew at our recent catch up and they, too, pass on their gratitude for acknowledging all of their hard work and ENERGY! How they remember everyone's names is beyond me, we're extremely lucky to have such a wonderful crew. As the only overnight cruise in the Bay of Islands, we know how lucky we are, but it's humbling to see how our guests clearly love the experience as much as we do. Come back soon!
Kind Regards,
Amy - The Rock Adventure Cruise
