Why us?

why choose Us?

Some of the reasons people travel on the green boat….

  • It’s easy. Just walk on and pay on board
  • Casual friendly atmosphere
  • Meet, talk and share with other travellers over a coffee
  • Walk around the boat while cruising
  • Fun for the whole family, of any age
  • No crowds, we only carry up to 15 people to allow you plenty of personal space
  • Personal commentary by skipper Dave
  • Ask questions and get answers
  • No loud roaring motors
  • Clean toilet and changing room
  • Slow speed close to shore
  • Close to the water, not towering above 2 stories tall
  • For evening tours you can fire up the BBQ and enjoy your meal in the most breathtaking setting imaginable

Eating, relaxing and swimming. This could just be the most memorable activity of your holiday here and, at just $50 a person, you cannot afford to miss it!

We believe our cruises are the best little trips around… You be the judge.

We have a full flushing toilet and changing room available on the boat.

All of our required safety equipment is on board including life jackets and life rings. 

We spend approximately 20 minutes at Split Apple Rock alongside a gorgeous beach. You are welcome to take a swim in that time. We do have pool noodles for your use in the water.

We do not encourage you to climb the rock as it is considered tapu to local Maori. You can however swim out for a closer look however you do so at your own risk.

We accept cash and/or cards as payment.

We are happy to provide gift vouchers. They are valid for 1 year and not redeemable for cash. Please contact us to arrange a voucher.

For your comfort and safety Skipper Dave assesses the weather prior to every trip. If it is deemed that the weather makes the trip uncomfortable (too windy whipping up waves) or is generally unsuitable (rainy) the trip will be cancelled and any monies paid can be refunded or held over for another trip.
