Absolutely the best trip today! Highly recommend Hamish n Gary from Green Mussel Cruise in Havelock. Two very dedicated and humorous gents to guide tourists on a boat trip up Kenepuru Sound from Havelock! A wonderful day with a feast of Green Shell Mussels ...a ripper of a day!! Thank you Hamish n Gary for a splendid day!

We booked this trip last minute knowing that it was going to be a bit grey and drizzling but hoping for the best.... what a gorgeous way to spend an afternoon!! John and Andrew were wonderful, they sailed us around the beautiful coast line and told us and showed us everything there is to know about mussel farming before cooking up the most mouthwatering feast of green shell mussels and beautiful wine!! Utterly gorgeous and the best mussels we have ever eaten!!! Thank you both!!!! :)

The cruise was fantastic from start to finish. The hosts Hamish & Ryan was funny and had lots of local knowledge of the area and mussels.

The mussels were delicious and so was the wine couldnt of asked for a better afternoon.

Wonderful day out on the water cruising in the sun. My wife and I chose to finish our honeymoon holiday with the Mussel cruise and had a great time! Highlights were an up close look at the mussel farms, workers harvesting the crop and a stop in a protected bay for the sounds of native birds chirping as we sipped wine while eating fresh warmly steamed mussels! Thanks to Ryan and Georga for a top cruise with plenty of interesting and strong local knowledge. Cheers - Keiran and Jess.
