Absolutely one of the best trips we have ever done. In true friendly kiwi style the crew were great. We all had a brilliant day and got lots out of the day. It was an added extra to be able to bring bbq food onboard. Overall a fantastic day with great memories. We will definalty book again when in the area. �����

My family and I had an awesome start to 2018 - heading out with the Bay Explorer crew in Tauranga/Mt Maunganui! The weather was just perfect - and the dolphins were just amazing!!! So surreal to be up and close with them at the bow of the boat. Seeing the blue shark out in the ocean was awesome too! Lots of fun paddle boarding for the first time for all of us! Very glad we brought along goggles for our swim, the water was so clear that we got to see a school of blue mau mau and a couple of snapper swim by right underneath us! Highly recommended trip! Ps - thanks heaps to the crew - very knowledgeable and friendly people, makes the trip even better! �
