We went out on The Rock 11 years ago with our son. This time we took our 11 year old daughter. The Rock was just as much fun this time as it was the last. The activities keep things interesting and the staff are fun friendly and informative. Our daughter had her first try at fishing and got a fish... More

They had obviously had a good night, and had bonded well. We spent a couple of hours going to one of the islands (slowly). You could then snorkel for 15 minutes.... More

This cruise was an amazing way to see the Bay of Islands! The activities included fishing, kayaking, hiking and snorkeling just to name a few. They were all planned very well and you still had time to relax, have a drink at the bar or sit in front of the fire. The crew was fantastic and helped everyone have great... More

My boyfriend and I went on this on the 6th of Jan and we're not disappointed it was everything we expected and much much more the activities alone are worth the money not to mention the comfy beds and the delicious food the staff were probably the best part making everything more enjoyable and telling us facts along the way!...
