Having experienced a few holiday 'boat trips' in our time, this ranks up there with the best. It does what it says on the tin.....and more.
Paul, the leading light, really put his heart and soul into it, ably supported by the rest of his team.
It must be hard to 'pitch' the offering to all and sundry, but they managed it admirably, their clientele ranging in ages from 50+ to under 10's.
A guitar-backed singalong en route to the island set the tone; local songs to start, followed by well-known 'standards' and then 'volunteered' contributions from the guests.
Plenty to do once we reached the island.....snorkelling, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding. SCUBA diving for those qualified too.
At lunch, a very acceptable combination of hot chicken, sausages and salad ( with as much wine/beer/soft drinks as you could wish for) we were entertained by Paul's Eulogy to the Coconut Tree.....very entertaining and informative.
More water sports to follow before heading home, singing on the boat once more. This time, the songs had a more international flavour, chosen to reflect the guests' nationalities.... Waltzing Matilda for the Aussies, etc. etc.
All in all a good fun day out.
