Very enjoyable tour. Pristine and unspoilt surrounds. Good weather was a bonus.
Dropped off on Urupakupaku island. Had 1.5 hour walk to swimming beach. Poorly marked map - no distances. No signage on trail - got lost. Walk to pick up point took 3 hours of moderate to hard up and down walking. Wouldnt recommend to anyone.
Our tour was rescheduled by the operator, to 2pm. So on the day we re-booked back to an 8am cruise by the same operator (dolphin watching + hole in rock). This was better as it rained later in the day. It also gave us much more time to get back to the ship. My wife and child were seasick, so beware.
THE TRIP WAS EXCELLENT AND THE COMMENTRY FROM BOTH GUIDES WAS INFORMATIVE AND RELEVANT TO WHAT WE WERE SEEING. THE HEALTH AND SAFETY WAS WELL ORGANISED AND WE HAD A VERY ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE
Beautiful Scenery in a modern boat - excellent commentary. Very happy.
