Best Way To See Cathedral Cove!
My partner and I had the best day out with these guys! Aimee was so nice and accommodating, and our guide Andy was hilarious. He was both very entertaining as well as super knowledgeable about the history and Maori culture. The kayak trip itself was very cruisy and the views were incredible! You’re just in awe of the beauty. This is a must do!

Superpod Of Dolpins - They Literally Swam All Around Our Kayaks!
We had a fantastic time kayaking the area! Andy was a great guide -- he was flexible and changed things up in a flash to take advantage of a superpod of dolpins. They literally swam all around our kayaks! The trip was well organized and a great value. I would highly recommend it!!!

Every Second Was Mesmerising
Our group of 8 had an amazing morning kayaking out to Cathedral Cove with this company! We were taken out by Brad who was super friendly and relaxed and would regularly stop and tell us about the history and geography of the islands. 

We went to Cathedral Cove and spent just under an hour there (more than enough time) taking pictures and exploring the beaches, it was stunning. We were then treated to a surprise set up of hot drinks and biscuits on the beach presented in a better way than most cafe’s do them! We set off and kayaked around two small islands then headed back to the beach. 

We were out there for 3 hours and every second was mesmerising, we all had a great time and definitely got our moneys worth! I recommend anybody to go with this company!  Thankyou!

Absolutely Must Do In Coromandel Penisula!
Amazing experience!! Absolutely a must do in Coromandel Penisula! The staff was great (thank you Ashton) and we had a wonderful time. The paddling was really fun and the sight was beautiful. Absolutely recommended.

We did the trip with Hayden who poured out heaps of local knowledge and information. It's a better way to see Cathedral Cove and the close islands.
