Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan

That evening, we went on Darryl's Dinner Cruise ($78 pp), a 2½ hour cruise from Paihia, up the Waitangi River to Haruru Falls and back on board the vessel Ratanui. It gets very good reviews, and it was a great evening - about 25 people in a very casual atmosphere, with excellent food (after prawn/mussel starters, your choice of steak, lamb or fish). There's a full bar, and we took advantage of the BYO wine option for dinner.

I don't know what Darryl was fishing for, as nothing ever came on board from the pole seen in this photo of Cathy and I taken at Haruru Falls.
