Thanks Tony for an absolutely amazing experience. Not 100% sure what we were up for but none of us were disappointed. We copped it all sun, wind, rain and even hail but that did not deter our enjoyment. The squeeze an absolute must do and worth every cent. Thanks again Tony and also to Shannon for suiting us up and for that cup of soup at the end, we certainly all enjoyed it.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this outing. She is not much of an adventurer so she was nervous anticipating the squeeze. She did fine and we had a blast! The staff was outstanding! I would highly recommend this trip!

Fantastic tour - a must-do if you are in the area but be sure your physical body size will not be an issue for The Squeeze or you will waste your money...it is quite a squeeze for sure but the resulting falls and natural pool was fabulous. Trish was very helpful during the pre-planning stage. Marty was a good tour guide for the adventure. If there is a negative...it is the purchase of photographs...working to get the photos taken and purchased but not the specific ones were not provided unfortunately.

FIrst time we had the opportunity to take a trip on a jet boat. Had great guide! The highlight was the Squeeze. Since there were only two of us in the Squeeze, we spent a lot of time under the waterfalls and in the pool above. One of our highlights on our trip to New Zealand. Wouldn't miss it.

Much to my wife's surprise, I booked this trip even though she has a fear of tight spaces. Our captain, Jeremy, proved his capabilities with the boat even managing a 360 degree turn and entertained us throughout the journey. He persuaded my wife that the walk through the squeeze was not as daunting as she had imagined, which turned out to be 100 true and we both really enjoyed the whole experience. if you get the chance, take this trip and remember the experience forever.
