The sailing trip was a wonderful event for family and friends. I strongly reccomend the private sail. The staff was extrememly professional and they kept the drinks flowing.

We really enjoyed our trip on this beautiful boat. The crew was very friendly and made sure that we had our fill of drinks. The food was delicious, especially the fresh guacamole. They were even knowledgeable enough to accommodate my gluten allergy. The captain took care to ensure that we avoided red tide areas (toxic algae blooms) and were swimming in clean water. A couple of things they could improve upon would be providing enough snorkeling equipment for all of the passengers so no one is left out, and perhaps finding a better snorkeling location as there was not much to see on our trip. Although they did provide a snorkel guide to point out a couple of interesting things we probably would not have noticed, including a nice big stingray.

This is advertised as a sunset sail. Unfortunately we barely sailed the motor was going most of the time. The boat was very crowded. The snorkelling was a huge disappointment and we weren't offered a sea kayak as advertised. The staff were very friendly but seemed they just wanted to offer us cocktails and very average food. I'd strongly not recommend this trip as Gold Coast charters don't offer what they advertise

Incredible trip! The captain was super warm and inviting and we felt totally at ease the whole time. He and his crew kept the trip entertaining with jokes and cool details of the areas we visited--which were breathtaking! I really feel he chose the best spots to see and explore, which we could do snorkeling AND kayaking! The food and drinks were super fresh, healthy and delish! I will def be using them again!

Great crew, great fun! We loved it and so glad we went. This was the third time for some of the members in our group, but my first time. I plan on doing it again each time I visit CR.
