Great crew, looked after everybody extremely well, brilliant day out!



One of the best experiences of my life. The snorkelling was sensational. The small number of people on the boat made this trip very special, we had personal interaction with Steve and Charlotte. The lunch on board was fabulous. Loved the sail home! Good short tour around the island. A very special day!


Sharon Payne

Jo & Andrew Tout

It was a wonderful day and would very highly recommend this to anyone and everyone. The crew bent over backwards to help and make our day very special, especially our children. Thank you to all.

What an amazing day, the sailaway was a beautiful boat, and the our time aboard was amazing, only wish we had more time to spend on the island!

Everything was great, except it was a bit windy at first, but no one can control that. :) I loved the entire trip.
