My friend Mary and I had a great day out with Bay Explorer, Brandon the Skipper and Jack (fitting name as he was Jack of all trades) Guide, Crew, Barman, Chef, and Deck Hand We cruised the ocean between Tauranga and Motiti Island and beyond. Anchored for lunch off Motiti where some people canoed, used paddle boards, swam or jumped off the top deck of the boat. Saw a variety of marine life and both crew members were very knowledgeable of the surroundings and the variety of species we came across. Well worth the time and value for money.read more

Ein absolutes muss! Hatten tolles Wetter und so alles an Fischen gesehen was man gesehen haben muss. Kapitän und Helfer waren super nett. Durften vorne auf dem Bug sitzen und Kinder durften das Steuer halten. Ich hab nur die 5h Tour gemacht, hat mir völlig gereicht. Essen und trinken mitbringen ist erlaubt. Sonnencreme und Fernglas hats auf dem Boot! Nespresso Maschine, Chips und Softdrinks, Wein sind auch an Board. Ich hab die Tour gemacht, da ich schon länger in Tauranga sesshaft bin und es an dem besagten Tag keine Wellen zum surfen vorhanden waren. Dementsprechend gab es auch fast keinen Wellengangread more
