fantastic Trip

Three generations of our family loved this trip. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, the boat speeds allow for part of the trip which is really exciting for our six year old. We saw lots of dolphins and they felt really close as the boat is low in the water. We found this trip much more enjoyable than our previous bay of Islands tour on are really big crowded tourist boat

Our family enjoyed this 60 minute boat ride around the Bay of Islands. The tour guide Dave was very friendly and interesting, and we had a look around the islands and heard the history. Saw some dolphins which was cool!

Me and my partner loved the tour, our tour guide was amazing, he was a local and it meant a lot to be there with someone who had grown up in the town. GREAT value for money and awesome tour. I saw alot of the other flash boats with heaps of people in them and was very fortunate, for our tour as we got to chase the dolphins and get that one on one attention with our guide. Loved it. Thank you Tang Boats Tour you guys are awesome
