Not been yet, but wanted to talk about exceptional service when we needed to cancel on the same day we should have gone and they re-booked us on another day very cheerfully without charge although not needing to do so.
Hats off to their friendly staff!

We really enjoyed our day trip on the Royal Mail Run ferry to Kawau Island.We booked our tickets at the Visitor Information Centre in Warkworth.We seem to meet the most helpful interesting people all day The captain and crew were most informative and friendly.A lovely ferry ride then a few stops with mail and groceries at various little bays,learning about the early pioneer history of the copper mine and the Cornish and Welsh miners.Then the extraordinary life of Gerorge Grey. We got off at Mansion House and explored the gardens and had a picnic in the company of a beautiful,friendly peacock.We could have opted for a barbecue lunch on the ferry but took our own lunch.We regretted this when we realised there was a fish option.Next time!.We had ice cream from the little cafe and a swim and snorkel before heading back. It was heavenly and just what we needed.

A lovely relaxing day on the water. We took the mail run cruise. It was really enjoyable and we added the BBQ lunch is as well.
The skipper was knowledgable and we enjoyed his commentary.

We got this on a voucher deal and oh wow, what amazing value, customer service, care and adventure.
The skipper and his assistant were very informative without being in your face.
We went to lots of wharfs and saw locals getting on and off. The island is amazing and we are definitely going back to stay there.
I couldn't be happier with this trip.

My partner and I took my elderly parents on the Kawau Island Royal Mail Run Cruise. We had the most enjoyable day cruising around the bays of Kawau, stopping at many of the wharves. I was most impressed with the whole experience; the ease of booking the friendless of the staff, the comfort and cleanliness of the boat, and the visit to all the lovely scenic bays of Kawau. After a 2 hour cruise we were dropped at Mansion House Bay where we enjoyed our picnic lunch in the beautiful grounds and had a leisurely stroll around the trees and gardens. We were picked up again at 2pm and returned to the Sandspit. We were particularly spoilt with the weather that day which probably helped to make our day even more special. Thank you Kawau Cruises.
