This was a great relaxing trip and exceeded my expectations. On the surface it's quite an expensive 90 minutes but once aboard it's worth every penny. The crew are very laid back and just let you get on with enjoying the views and the trip...More

This was a last minute decision . We saw the boat and that it was about to leave. Crew friendly and relaxed, a bit of Bob Marley music and we were off. Drinks offered, no hard sell at all. Unfortunately due to the swell we...More

We did the morning cruise and the staff were really good. Went with Gran and teenagers. All enjoyed it thoroughly and we managed to go through the Heads, which was a bonus. The skipper was very entertaining and made all of us feel at ease.

The cruise on this catamaran is a must do. The crew are very good and helpful. The skipper Leon really knows his trade. The snacks on this cruise are very, very good and you can never finish it all. Served with ice cold drinks.

The catamaran sail up to the Heads and back is very pleasant but could have been so much better. For us there was no need for the loud music which the crew appeared to play for their own enjoyment. During the entire trip the only...More
