This was our 3rd "cruise" but it was far from "yet another cruise". The moment we got on board, Hamish the captain made us feel at home, the boat wasn't too busy, allowing us to roam where we liked to get the best views, or simply sit with a drink and a snack. Our two children, aged 10 and 7 wanted to see dolphins and we certainly did, we hadn't travelled far before we encountered at least a dozen dolphins. But that was not the only treat, Hamish's gentle yet informative commentary kept us all amused and then he took us out to sea to find seals and penguins. The open sea was a little choppy; our daughter felt a little unwell, but Hamish's assistant soon took her under wing and she soon recovered.
