What people are saying about Northland

Our skipper and his first mate were helpful and fun. Safety was a priority, so first they ran thru all the safety features...then the fun began. Double hulled boat was in Ship shape. Our skipper kept us all engaged while professionally tending to his responsibilities. He was full of information on the area. The two hours went very quickly. It was a wonderful way to spend time on the water...and the price was very reasonable for the experience we got.

My family did the two hour evening cruise, absolutely loved it. My son chose this activity for his 7th birthday and he really enjoyed jumping in the ocean, watching how a sail ship operates etc. My five year old also enjoyed herself. Husband and I definitely rated it and are keen to do this again next summer. The captain is awesome, a great host, knowledgeable, friendly and approachable.

Awesome hosts/sailors Luke & Rachel & awesome company. Really enjoyed the tour/cruise. Got to have a swim as well. They know their stuff & knowledgeable about the area so you get great insights throughout. Would definitely recommend & definitely book them again if we come back up north.

Amazing experience! We booked the tour 24 hours in advance and joined 4 other people on the boat. 2 hours of sailing in the bay with a stop for swimming and beers, we definitely recommend this experience! The perfect way to end your day in Paiha.

Have been going to Russell for years and this is one of the standout experiences we’ve had...two young kids 9 and 3 enjoyed it as much as we did. Beautiful boat, great hospitality and an excellent skipper...fully recommend.
