Would highly recommend this day trip. From start to finish Luke was friendly, professional and made sure everyone was comfortable (bean bags were an awesome addition). Coffee and biscuit on the way..... more »
Stepping off the beautiful beach in Paihia onto Barefoot charters was like setting out on an adventure on your own boat, Luke and Rachael gave me such a warm greeting and made me feel like I was part of the family from the first moment. Lying in the sun with the wind on my face in a state of complete relaxation I didn't think life could be much better until Rachael brought around teas and coffees for all of us to warm the spirits even more. Both Luke and Rachael were very informative about the Bay of Islands and even gave us a chart telling us what fish we would be likely to see whilst on our snorkeling adventure. We stopped for 2 hours in one of the bays on an island, were given a packed lunch and given the freedom to roam the island, swim, paddleboard and snorkel around which was great. So delightful and so relaxing. I couldn't recommend this trip more!
We spent six hours with Luke on his Barefoot catamaran. It was a very nice time with a two hour stop for snorkelling, paddle boarding, lunch and a hike. Luke was a wonderful host and an excellent skipper.
