  • The whole experience, from the exceptional food and drinks service provided by Linda to the proximity to the rocks for viewing, was so much better than expected. Excellent value for money. Would definitely recommend this trip. 5

  • Our server was fantastic! She was very friendly, conscientious, and helpful, even though she had to cover the whole boat herself. 5

  • The only thing I could fault was that I could'nt hear what the captain was saying that well, due to people talking & that the speakers maybe not turned up loud enough... Overall though we would highly recommend it a great little boat. 4

  • Despite the poor weather and lack of customers we were delighted that the Ernest Kemp sailed for us and 1 other passenger as we were all moving on the next day. Disappointed not to get to Maori carvings but as no other boat took to the water we were happy with our curtailed tour and excellent commentary and hospitality. Roller coaster waves at times but good fun! 4

  • Most enjoyable cruise on a great little boat. The boat allowed excellent views (and photography) from all parts of the boat. Good (and entertaining) commentary from the captain. 5
