Great to see our very own Hauraki Gulf whales and dolphins hunting with the gannets and shearwaters yesterday.  Fantastic experience, great day out and enjoyed the commentaries.  Appreciated the friendliness of the crew.  What a great team.

Bless you all

Just wanted to say that the fishing trip on Saturday evening was great!  I took 2 boys who caught fish, had fun, and really enjoyed it!! And Danny (the skipper) was fantastic – very patient with the boys, and great at explaining things and funny as well.
Many thanks for making it all a great experience.



Just dropping you a note to thank Danny & Jenny for a fantastic fishing trip on Saturday 13th, (booked by Andrew). Apart from catching plenty of fish, everyone enjoyed the whole day & Danny & Jenny were great. There is talk of booking another trip soon!                                 

Thanks again.
Regards Gudny


Hi Danielle,
I’d just like to say a big thank you for the fishing charter I took with you on the 21st January, everyone had a great time and really enjoyed themselves! The captain and facilities on the boat were brilliant and I think everyone in our party managed to catch at least one fish!! Please pass on my thanks to the captain and everyone else at the red boats for making our trip so enjoyable!

Best regards,
Tom Harvey


Hello Andrew and Daniellle
Our thanks to you for a wonderful evening on Hogwash Saturday night. We had a memorable time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

With thanks

Hi Andrew
I have just returned from the States which is why I have taken so long to get this note to you. I just wanted to say that we had a great experience when we hired the MV Hogwash for a family party on 23rd December. I would definitely recommend it to all my friends. Thanks for a lovely harbour cruise, seeing the Auckland skyline by daylight and then by night made it a party to remember!

Kind regards


Just a quick note to say thank you! The boat trip was awesome despite the weather. The old sea dog – Danny, was tremendous and made us feel incredibly welcomed and encouraged. We will definitely be back for another round of family fishing. Thank you again.


Andrew & Danielle
I want to pass on our thanks for the awesome Boat Trip to the Riverhead Tavern and return.   No need to tell you, you saw  how much we enjoyed the night. We are all very impressed with the M.V. Hogwash and the service.
Also thanks for the food it was unexpected but much appreciated.

Please pass this on to Danny & Jenny on the Ocean Spirit. Thank you.

Dear Danny and Jenny,
My most humblest apologies for leaving the bag of rubbish on board on Friday. I am sorry to create extra work for you as I know you were under pressure to get ready for the next charter. I know you had a busy weekend so I hope it went well. Beverley says thanks for the best wishes, retirement is great.

Hi Dannielle,
Just to let you know the fishing trip yesterday was excellent, Danny and Jenny are helpful and friendly, and made the day good fun. We will most certainly be back for more. I don’t often write mails like this, but on this occasion, I think the praise is truly deserved.

Danny and Jenny excelled in making a very successful event that all of the person’s onboard thoughly enjoyed and the sixty four snapper caught was an exellent result, looking foward to another trip next year 25th of February.

I would just like to say thank you for the wonderful fishing trips we had on your boat over the past two weekends. Our customers had a great time and we all got to take home alot of fish which was a bonus. Danny & Jenny are a great asset to your business as they made us feel welcome and made sure we wanted for nothing. I would not hesitate to recommend the Red Boats to anyone looking to go fishing.
Once again THANK YOU

Hi Andrew Just wanted to say thank you, from myself and all the staff for a lovely day last Friday.

Thanks again Jenny Kitney and all the staff at Navman Technology

Just a quick thank you for the wonderful trip we went on yesterday to the Riverhead Pub.  I have been boating all my life on the Waitemata but have never gone further than the Greenhithe Bridge!!  What an amazing waterway it is.  The commentary and crew were great and we would definitely put it on our list for overseas visitors. Thank you again.
