Absolutely Amazing!

Amazing views. Brian gave us plenty of time to take photos and had heaps of information on the history of all the places we saw. Was very exciting going fast and doing sharp turns in the water. Brian offered jackets when it was raining. We also got to enter so many caves which was very cool. Would recommend highly!

For the adrenaline junkie!

With a number of different boat tours to choose from to visit Cathedral Cove, the Cave Cruzer thrill ride appealed the most. It certainly didn’t disappoint. Our skipper, Brian, provided the perfect balance of information, scenic stops and pure adrenaline charged twists and turns! Being a small boat we got to go inside a few of the caves, including Orua, the second largest sea cave in NZ where ACDC provided us with an example of how good the acoustics are!! Great couple of hours of fun!

The Ultimate Coromandel Experience

This was absolutely incredible. Brian was a superb captain and guide. His knowledge of the area is on point. He runs a professional business but still possesses good humour. Additionally, he realises that little things like being in the front of the boat is something everyone wants to do and as a result, manages this perfectly.

Best Cruze in New Zealand

Went on a sunny 11 am trip. Brian did a funny safety briefing, then we set of at high speed. Sea was calm, he took us into lots of coves with his highly manoeuvrable boat, played Adele to showcase the acoustics in a cave, saw lots of fish. Could have done snorkelling, tour took about 2 hours. Absolute must, catamaran tours will not get you as close, neither will the much slower glass bottom boat tours. Book Brian for a great trip
