Best day trip from Paihia if you want to see a bit of everything. We sailed on the beautiful yacht which you can help with. We hiked on tiny islands, kayaked in see through bottom kayaks and snorkelled. We also saw a pod of dolphins on the way back who followed us for a while. Great value for money.

Fantastic experience, sailed to Robertson Island and swam in bay and lagoon, paddled kayaks and got to steer boat and help with hoisting sails. Nice walk to scenic viewpoint on Island. A good picnic lunch provided. Total trip about 6 hrs which seemed reasonable value for money, Skipper was friendly and informative, Sadly no dolphins seen, but penguins and bronze whaler shark were. Glorious weather made trip even better. Fully reccomend and probably a much better experience than the power cruises where the boats seem overcrowed and commercialised.

Great owner and great boat also. Even if the weather was bad on the day I went, it was still a great time.
