I did the explore NZ… The dolphin watching was okay… A bit long @ four hours… But the Sail NZ in the afternoon was FANTASTIC!!! Five stars! I’d reccomend doing the tour just for the Sail NZ!
I did fishing and kayaking, the fishing was very good – there were 7 people on the boat and we were catching a 8-16 pound snapper every 2 minutes.
Kayaking is good if your arms are strong enough and you have sunscreen.
I did the horse treck and\everyone in my group thought it was a total waste of money , we went rediculously slow and all we saw was a few pine trees half of which had been logged and lots of mud. And we couldnt talk to one another because we were in along line. I did enjoy the dolphine adventures that was great we saw lots of dolphines but unfortunately we werent able to swim with them because there was a baby in the pod. Not for ppl prone to see sickness tho there was alot of ppl vomiting
