To be honest after looking at the pictures on their website i wasnt convinced it was worth it I was wrong, the breakfast (which doesnt look like much) is actually pretty appetizing, and once your on board you can drink, eat as much as you want and thats great something you wont get on other day cruises. Lunch is better... More

The schooner took over an hour to get to the remote island. Great breakfast was provided with all kinds of drinks and Champagne. While cruising, some of the crew played instruments and sang native songs that sounded wonderful. Young and old joined in with familiar songs-it was wonderful. On the island, we had lunch, and then one could relax, or... More

After some debate as we were staying on the Coral Coast and knew that this would indeed be a long day we decided to book the "Whale's Tale" cruise. What a memorable day this was. Well organised, plenty of food, champagne and drinks on offer and a wonderful crew who provided many laughs and entertainment. This was definitely well worth... More

Great day trip especially with a group of friends. We all dressed up and went along for a party. All you can drink which they encourage. We were celebrating a honeymoon and birthday and we got a cake for afternoon tea on the way back to the Marina. The island itself was okay. Nice lunch - one of the better... More

The crew on this trip were simply amazing. So friendly and they go out of their way to make sure you have a great time. The snorkelling was really an experience on its own. I was handed some bread to hold and the fish went crazy eating it out of my hands. It was a quite a surprise at first... More

Went with my husband and two teenage children. We all agreed that this was our favourite day of our holiday. When you first board you are given a glass of bubbly wine or juice and a breakfast of scones/jam, fresh fruit and the best Danish's we have ever tasted. On the cruise to the island a woman is available to... More
