Great, everyone should do this.
One thing that was silly the photographer took one picture of us on the dock before the boat. Then we were expected to buy a pack with only one photo of us and we were not even on the boat.
This trip was amazing, I strongly recommend it. It was beautiful.Reviewed by: Shirene A, January 2013
This was a great trip.
The Ipipiri is a very comfortable craft, with nice beds in the cabins and several areas on the decks for relaxing and enjoying the view.
The staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful and the food was good too.
We enjoyed cruising in the islands and did various water activities, like kayaking and snorkelling and encountered a playful pod of dolphins off the bow.
The coach to and from Paihia was comfortable so we were not tired.
Very relaxing, I recommend it.
This was an amazing trip! My husband and I went on this overnight cruise and recommend it very highly. The only thing we didn't get to see was the Hole in the Rock. We booked another quick trip out to see it, which helped us to realize the amazing deal we got on this overnight trip. So well worth it! It was one of the highlights of our NZ trip! I would absolutely recommend this!Reviewed by: Tammy P, April 2012
Unfortunately, it was raining both days so we didn't get off the boat to kayak, snorkel or visit an island as the brochure indicated. It was very rough getting out to islands but we settled down for night and one of the lovely stewards got the Trivial pursuit out. It was good fun in end with our fellow passengers. I must say that the crewe were fabulous, food was great but weather let us all down.Reviewed by: linda m p, April 2012
