Magnificent way to watch the sunset. Crew were friendly, professional, helpful (helped my 70yo Mum onto the boat with ease and she loved it), experienced and entertaining. Loved going out on the net on the front of the boat. Fun atmosphere.

I have never been on this type of catamaran and never planned to ride one. That’s not until someone I know asked me to officiate a memorial to scatter his father’s ashes. The scenery was beautiful and it was a wonderful setting to reflect upon...More
