Amazing Trip Along A Stunning Coastline
(Updated: January 28, 2020)
Thanks Les for an amazing trip along a stunning coastline. We all appreciated the small group tour and your personal and local knowledge. We were surprised by the large number of caves and rock formations and that we were able to enter them safely in your boat. The weather was perfect and the seas calm.

Les you are an incredible host, that trip was fantastic! Definitely worth every penny. Thank you for showing us around Mercury Bay, we will be back! We got off the boat and Rick immediately said "When can we come back?" If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!

Awesome Tour On The Water
(Updated: January 28, 2020)
Can't say enough about what an awesome tour on the water we had!! The boat was very comfortable & stable. Les was a great host, showing us many sea caves & marine life. Les  took us out & gave us an experience we will never forget. He was also very patient & obliging with us as we are photographers & he took time to help us get the shots we were after. Thanks so much for the memorable experience Les!!

Can't Recommend It Enough
(Updated: January 28, 2020)
We did Les' tour with friends and family from the USA and Australia (we live in Auckland) and it was AWESOME! Can't recommend it enough. This tour gets up close and personal with some of the best coastline the Coromandel has to offer. Thanks Les for a great day on the water, and for being a fantastic tour guide. We'd do it again - great value!

Great Value For Money
(Updated: January 28, 2020)
We recently done this trip on a holiday in Whitianga. Was a fantastic trip, Les was a great guide. Great size boat to be able to get right into the caves. A great way to see this coastline and a number of caves, etc. we never even knew were there. Would happily recommend this to anyone. Great value for money.
