We did the morning cruise and the staff were really good. Went with Gran and teenagers. All enjoyed it thoroughly and we managed to go through the Heads, which was a bonus. The skipper was very entertaining and made all of us feel at ease.

The cruise on this catamaran is a must do. The crew are very good and helpful. The skipper Leon really knows his trade. The snacks on this cruise are very, very good and you can never finish it all. Served with ice cold drinks.

The catamaran sail up to the Heads and back is very pleasant but could have been so much better. For us there was no need for the loud music which the crew appeared to play for their own enjoyment. During the entire trip the only...More
