An exceptional week’s charter. I seldom find I can say this, but what Alan, Karen & Conrad provided was beyond my expectation. A truly memorable and enjoyable time was had by all!

Thank you so much for a wonderful week of family fun, eating crayfish, and mussels in Karen’s Thai curry, yum. Our wonderful skipper who kept us safe and of course I must mention Trout Valley & Cecelia, and dear old Moet. I loved climbing Rawhiti hill, I want to be buried there, on top of the world with my Maori brothers. I nearly forgot your fresh bread Karen, mmm. I could fill up the pages ahead retelling the wonders of New Zealand’s green seas, rugged scenery and sitting serenely in the beautiful bays, sleek, spacious, “State of the Art” Alan & Karen’s Bucket List beauty.

My daughter, Camille, booked this amazing birthday weekend for my 30th!!! Birthday. We all had a marvellous time – fishing (caught 3 snapper for dinner) & Sam dived with Conrad (skipper) for scallops which we dined on that night with crayfish on the BBQ. Alan & Karen were very hospitable, taking us to gorgeous bays, beaches & fabulous walks. Many, many grateful thanks- we all had a super time – the best birthday I could ever have asked for, thanks family. Hope to be back for more than a weekend!
