We had a great trip on the evening sunset cruise, capped off with the start of the Red Moon Eclipse. Crew really friendly, plenty of fizz made for a very enjoyable trip.

We had a wonderful day out on this boat. The owners were great hosts, the sailing was beautiful and Providence was a perfect way to see the beautiful coves of Magnetic Island. Lunch was excellent and even though we are true land lubbers we enjoyed every moment of our time on board

We had such a great day out, and even took up the offer to help out with the sails and have a steer! Lunch was delicious, the staff great fun and the scenery simply stunning! Recommended highly.

We booked the Sunset Cruise and upon arrival at the boat we were advised by Francesco, the deckhand, that we were going to have the boat to ourselves! A Private Charter!!! And for a fraction of the cost that you'd normally have to pay for such:) Alan, the skipper, arrived shortly afterwards and off we went... Plenty of lively and... More

My girlfriend and I had a great time on Providence! After originally planning to head out to the reef for a dive, a last minute cancelation meant we were without anything to do for the day. We found Providence and could not have been happier we did. Even in quite choppy conditions the boat held strong and cutting the motors... More

My wife and I booked a sunset cruise for our three anniversary. One hour prior to the cruise departing, we made contact with Providence to confirm the cruise was going ahead, we were advised that not enough people had booked to go on the cruise that day so the cruise wasnt going ahead. This is fair enough as they have... More

We were in Australia with the family during this July, and we did the outing with our 5 children - it was absolutely a highlight of the trip! The lunch cruise was fabulous - tea was yummy, lunch was great, excellent time. The trip is definitely more for the sailing, as the snorkeling is pretty good - we did see... More

We had really strong winds for a super fast sunset sail. Our lady Captain and her able crew gave us a real sailing experience. It was good to see the sun going down behind Magnetic Is and the stars coming up as we sailed back. For those who might get a bit queasy I suggest you take something to prevent... More

We did the sunsest cruise for our wedding anniversary and it was really lovely. Staff are very friendly and the boat is beautiful. We were served some bikkies and dip and a free glass of sparkling wine on arrival and drinks are available for purchase. My husband was able to help hoist the sails which was a bit of fun.... More
