Highly Recommend!

We had an amazing time aboard the wahine moe. Late afternoon and high tide meant it was perfect for cold drinks and a swim in the bay also. The crew took such good care of us and catered to the needs of our group - young kids, parents and grandparents. It was so great we didn’t want to leave!

Excellent trip

Excellent boat tour with good fish & chips and fabulous views of the harbour and the sunset. The atmosphere on board was cheerful despite a little bit of rain at the start of the tour. The live commentary was great as well!


We had an amazing time
on the Wahine Moe.

The crew were friendly and helpful. The captain was so funny and I loved his stories. He was so good with our kids aged 10 & 8. The fish and chips were so delicious. We would definitely recommend.
