Thank you for your fantastic service


We had a great afternoon on Aquabay, crew was fantastic food was excellent. Thank you for your fantastic service and arranging at such short notice.

Will definitely use you in the future.

We seriously loved every minute of it

Whitney Sellnow

Hi Kylie, Our crew had an AMAZING time!!!! We seriously loved every minute of it! Well, I did at least!

The lounge area below deck was extremely spacious, clean and comfortable (a few people on board commented on this as well). Also, the staff was very helpful and flexible which we all really appreciated. From start to finish your service has been top notch! Would definitely recommend your boat to people in the future.

Was so happy with it and would love to do it again sometime

William Astina, Serviced Apartments

It went perfectly! Only regret was not booking another hour. I and everybody had such a great time – everyone has been saying it was the best party they have ever been to!

Was so happy with it and would love to do it again sometime.

Thank-you for all your help and organising Kylie, you’ve been great.

Until next time!

…Perfect from start to finish

Bruce & Kerry, AUCKLAND NZ

We would like you to know how much we enjoyed our Vivid Dinner Cruise on Sunday night.

It was perfect from start to finish and the special treatment the wheelchair people received was a real credit to your organisation.

Thank you so much
