Yesterday was perhaps one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. My husband and I chose this tour because we loved the idea of sailing in such a magnificent boat. We were not disappointed. The crew were friendly, approachable, helpful, knowledgeable and fantastic with my children (aged 10, 8 and 5). The food provided throughout the day was fresh,... More

The brochure states "set sail for the adventure of a lifetime" - my partner and I loved every minute of this wonderful trip. The crew were fantastic and shared their knowledge with grace. The 2 stops for snorkeling did not disappoint and swimming for over an hour at each location amongst the coral and beautiful, colourful fish was a memory... More

We had a great day sailing on the Derwent Hunter. The crew were friendly and informative throughout the day and the food was delicious. The 2 snorkelling sights were great, seeing lots of fish and sea turtles. You snorkel from the beach so you can take a break at any point and relax on the golden sand. The only downside... More

The very friendly crew shared the history of the boat with us, and were most helpful in getting everyone for snorkelling and setting up lunch and morning and afternoon tea. The snorkelling spots were just beautiful, and the way the crew involved passengers in helping with the... More

This was a great day out, OK - we were blessed with fantastic weather for 01 July - but the combination of vessel, crew and low passenger numbers was for a $525 well spent. This history of the boat was of interest in itself, then the talks on board about the location and local marine life added to the experience.... More

An excellent experience - professional and friendly captain and crew. The snorkelling sites were good and sailing on a ship with such a rich history was amazing.

Super relaxing day on the water aboard the Derwent. 2 hours getting to the first snorkel spot then two stunning snorkeling opportunities. Lunch on board then back to the marina for two hours. The crew is very fun and keeps you engaged.
