The staff were amazing, the views and scenery gorgeous and lunch was yummy...! We encountered a few dolphins and loads of Australian seals, which was definitely a highlight. Wineglass bay was beautiful and a great place to anchor for lunch! Definitely get on this!

It was a beautiful day when we went out. Fantastic boat, i believe that it is a new one. The crew are excellent and will give you lots of information during the day, very friendly. They will come and point out things to you without having to ask. The sights during the trip are really good with interesting coastline. We... More

I did this cruise yesterday and while the seas were pretty choppy it was a great day out. The skipper was informative, the staff were excellent and really attentive throughout the whole trip. The provided lunch was brilliant. This is a must do in the Coles Bay area and well worth the money spent. Wineglass Bay was stunningly beautiful.

The staff were fabulous, attentive and knowledgeable. I have been on similar cruises around Australia and this is THE only one which charged for water, tea and coffee. I couldn't believe... More

Sipping champagne at wineglass bay was a... More

We were fortunate enough to book the last cruise of the season on Saturday, 31st May and this cruise did not disappoint. The staff were exceptional, with their knowledge, commentary and attention to their guests. One of the highlights was the sighting of a whale which breached itself no less that 150 meters from the boat - amazing! Totally impressed... More

Loved this cruise. Staff were very helpful from time of booking to checking you in before departing. The staff taking this cruise were very informative and ensured everyone enjoyed their cruise. The staff ensured we did not get wet (even though you were wearing the wet weather gear) by lowering the plastic side screens then immediately lifted the screens so... More

Did the Wineglass Cruise on the 25th April 2014, Fantastic experience, well organised and the running commentary of the areas fauna and flora was exceptional. The lunch of local oysters, cheese and spread was tasty and adequate.
