5 star ratingMy mum said it knocked spots off spots I went with family aged 44-70 and everyone enjoyed it. There were also some kids on board who had a great time. You do need to enjoy scenery and birds to get the most out of the day. The sand dunes are amazing - huge and ever shifting, quite surreal.

If you have limited mobility you would not be able to do the walks. I can imagine this would be really hot mid summer, but on a warm autumn day it was lovely. Lunch was fine, but the mid morning feed of cockles was a major hit with many! Cooked up on a barbie on the beach and served out after a walk. Quite special.

5 star ratingMaranui 1 boat cruise We had a glorious cruise with a great captain - saw some amazing bird life, some lazy seals and heard great historical facts along the way. We'll definitely go again & bring some friends next time.

5 star ratingMV Maranui As locals we took advantage of viewing our local area from the water. Great decision. Loved it. The launch is beautiful, exceptionally clean and very comfy. Although the wind was a little chilly, didn't impact our pleasure. Brian, our Captain, provided an informative commentary. Will we do it again - yes, sure will and will take friends next time. Excellent way to spend an hour and good value for $$$.
