My partner and I went on the Esperance. We had a choice between the catamaran and the Esperance yacht. We chose the Esperance and had a fantastic time! Big thanks to our guide David. Along the sail we spotted groups of penguins and some playful seals. Highly recommend.

We did a one hour cruise within the harbour. Due to inclement weather conditions we were unable to get out the harbour. The on-board crew made it fun and entertaining and the hour went far too fast.
