"We hired the electric mountain bikes and had a blast, definitely the way to see the island and what great service from the team, highly recommend you go see them if your planning a trip to the Barrier"


-George Mansell, NZ

"A MUST DO! Took the paddleboards and kayaks out one day and the e-bikes out to see the island the next day. Was so much fun. Can't think of a better way to enjoy the island. Lucy, Pete & Panzer were the friendliest locals we met on the Island by far. Will definitely be going here EVERY time we go to Great Barrier Island. Highly recommend it, can't wait to return!"


-Rachel Lowe, NZ
