At Cave Cruzer, we’ll take you to see Shakespeare’s Cliff, Lonely Bay & Cathedral Cove. You’ll get the thrill of going inside Cooks Blowhole, Whale Cave and our very own “Hole in the Rock”. You’ll venture inside caves others cannot take you!

You won’t be disappointed with Coromandel’s fantastic coastline as we go down to the Orua Sea Cave where you will be taken inside the cave and hear the amazing acoustics when we play music.

After you’ve experienced the adventurous caves, we’ll finish off the day with a snorkel/swim if desired. All snorkelling gear is supplied.

Meet Your Skipper: Brian

I started holidaying in this area in the village of Hahei Beach in 1986 & moved there in the year 2000. I purchased a property maintenance business shortly after moving to Hahei & added accommodation to that in 2003.

I took up sailing at the age of twelve & later my recreational power boating & diving. I’ve always loved getting out to the water being involved with Watersports & taking friends out to view the stunning natural beauty of the amazing coastline in our area. I’ve often talked about taking guests from our accommodation business out in the boat.

So when I saw the Cave Cruzer business for sale it seemed like purchasing it was just the right fit.

Here at Cave Cruzer, we merge the beautiful scenery Coromandel has to offer with the thrill of a speed boat. Our mission is for you to see parts of the coast others cannot in an adventurous, exciting, & thrilling way. Our open boat gives you a complete 360 degree view.

Brian From Cathedral Cove Tours

What our Customers say…

An awesome tour…

What a fantastic trip. Brian is a fantastic host, very knowledgeable about the area. Brian took us into caves that other boats may not be able to get into. The scenery was amazing with plenty of opportunity for photos. The boat ride was exhilarating, at times quite fast which was awesome and other times at a leisurely pace so you can enjoy the scenery.
Would highly recommend Cave Cruzer and would not hesitate to take the tour again.

Barbara H- Bowral, Australia

Amazing trip!

“An amazing adventure. Brian was funny and really knew the caves and the waters very well. Seeing the shore, caves and the ocean out on a boat was amazing. The water was so clear, turquoise and deep blue. On a trip like this with the owner if the opportunity presents itself (right tide and waves) you will see caves other tours do not see. Brian did not disappoint and he took us into caves that are normally not seen. He was an amazing captain getting us in, out and through the caves. Picture do not do it justice.”

Excellent tour…

Brian our skipper was awesome. He was knowledgeable, has a cool sense of humour and took us to some amazing spots. My teenage boys loved jumping off the rocks near the cave and also swimming in clear waters. This was defiantly a tour worth doing. We would definitely recommend this tour. Thank you Brian who showed us his skills on how to navigate the boat at 39 knots, thrilling and fun!
