I had the absolute best time doing this. I did it at the end of a tour that I was doing around New Zealand and it was one of the best things I did during my 17 days away. The two guys we had on the boat were fantastic and the customer service was great. Even just the boat ride... More

This was the best value for money of all the excursions e did in New Zealand over 3 weeks. It was awesome! We first spotted them while fishing off the rocks and were surprised with how long they stayed up. On our last day in NZ we did the trip. Don't think about it, just do it.

My boyfriend and I went up on Christmas day, was fantastic! I felt completely safe and the staff were well trained. It was such a relaxing experience and gave an amazing view of the bay of islands, we also got loads of photos which was great. I would recommend!

Definitely fun and the view is amazing. However, it's only 10 min in the air. The staff is very professional.

I'm not good on anything that moves but I braved the speedboat and parasailing for my husband and 17-year-old son. What a great experience! The harness makes you feel secure and once up in the air, you just float through the air in serenity overlooking the islands below. A bit of fun on the way down dipping your feet in... More

This really is the best way to see the Bay of Islands. It is an amazing experience, and much less scary than you think. The staff are friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
