This cruise was amazing, and the staff made the experience even more unforgettable. We saw dolphins and seals, and enjoyed the sites from the comfort of the cruise ship. It was a beautiful day so we were able to see all of the little nooks and crannies all the way to and from wineglass bay. Lunch was also delicious! The staff were talkative, interactive, and very welcoming to everyone onboard, even going back for someone’s hat which had blown off their head, which was actually located and returned!

A thoroughly enjoyable experience with attentive crew and comfortable boat. Such a beautiful part of the world and we were lucky enough to have a pod of dolphins accompany us for part of our cruise. As I am susceptible to motion sickness I took my own precautions prior to leaving and was glad I did even though the ride was quite smooth. Ginger tablets were made available at start of cruise. Lunch was great.

A very well organised cruise with a young but excellent crew, all enthusiastic and keen to ensure you enjoy yourselves. The crew and captain provide a great overview of the sights and are very informative. We were very luck to see a group of 30+ Orca’s surrounding the boat, an event that delighted everyone on board, not a regular event we were told! We also saw a sea eagle nest, seals a couple of albatrosses as well as the wonderful beaches, waterfalls and rock formations. The lunch was excellent too. Can’t fault it, left feeling elated!
