The beautiful surroundings / day and safety consciousness of the 2 crew members were appreciated by our family group of 8 ages 62 years to 4 months. , but I held off writing a review because there were many things which could be improved upon to truly have made it the day we had envisioned/ hoped for. While it was presented that the Yacht was “ ours for the day “ the early request to play our own music Was denied by captain Larry , and we needed to listen to rap songs with lyrics of “ m***** f***** , etc. with a 6 year old on board , I was not pleased and when questioned Alicia checked and said “ oh don’t worry your grandson fell asleep. “ we waited awhile to request again as we did not want to upset the crew... finally were permitted to play our own music, beginning with “ Sailing”by Christopher cross as the first fun request of my son- in law. While we all enjoyed it.. the crew was like “ what is this ? We have never heard of him”
With a sleeping baby the music was stopped so the issue was removed. 25 cent bags of chips were not appreciated as the only “snack” on board. This was not communicated prior. In planning the stops “Christmas. Island “ was clearly stated as a stop to make ... but unknown to me the specific of the stops Previously discussed was not communicated to the staff in any way. Christmas Island and the Pizza Pie lunch was not experienced. Available water toys on board , was not accurate. A blow up floating flamingo was offered to tie on to the boat and float and after the 6 year old and another member were so excited to relax and float on the blow up offered , staff could not find the flamingo any where on the boat. They settled for tying a paddle board to the back. There were additional details that did not make it the great day it could have been... we waited while the boat was fueled, the sunset viewing was cut short since the boat had to back at 5 pm to prepare for a week long booking,we actually docked 15 minutes early.
For those considering an excursion of this type there are other higher rated options for renting boats for the day.
