Everything about this experience was perfect. The staff are friendly, welcoming and informative. You instantly feel at home as soon as you set foot on the boat. Kayaking under the stars in the glowing water is something you won't ever forget. Would recommend this tour to anyone looking for an unforgettable experience!

Our family booked one of the 6 bed bunk rooms to spend New Year's Eve on The Rock. Reading the reviews, I had my fingers crossed that it would be a fun night. Reviews do not give The Rock enough praise! It was a blast! From the activity to get to know the other people on the boat, to the... More

We were lucky enough to stay overnight on The Rock and it was a definite highlight of our trip. The crew were amazing, I think they knew everyone by name by the end of our stay, and they had heaps of fun activities and knowledge to share. I would highly recommend getting out and going night kayaking to see the... More

The staff on this boat were absolutely incredible. They are friendly, knowledgeable and fun. My group had a medical emergency while on board and they handled it efficiently and with compassion. The cruise itself was so fun - lots of activities to keep you entertained with enough down time to feel relaxed as well. I couldn't recommend this with more... More

I just have been on my second cruse yesterday and it was amazing! We were a very mixed group and it was fun hanging around with everyone of them. The only problem was that we had bad weather, high waves lots of rain during the night but the crew handled it amazingly! We were offered some ginger for those who... More

I went into getting on the boat with no expectation of what the 22 hours would be - and I'm glad. I never wanted this to be a party boat or anything like that, and I'm glad it wasnt. A completely different experience, unlike anything else. You a brief moment night kayaking, which was fun, although, I do wish it... More

We went out on The Rock 11 years ago with our son. This time we took our 11 year old daughter. The Rock was just as much fun this time as it was the last. The activities keep things interesting and the staff are fun friendly and informative. Our daughter had her first try at fishing and got a fish... More
