We had a superb trip with Ken on his Cathedral Cove Scenic Cruise. Everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed it, Ken pointed out places of interest and his informed commentary was excellent. Every one in our group thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Thanks Ken

Nice trip to see the local attractions. Best time of the year as it was not too busy, and we had pretty good weather. Our guide Ken was very friendly and knew his stuff. Even rewarded with an encounter with a friendly humpback whale.

We did a scenic tour with Ken recently and it was fantastic! There were only two of us and Ken willingly took us out, a lot of other charters won't do that. We had a beautiful tour around all the sights of cathedral cove and Ken's commentary was super interesting and knowledgable. He went over and above and was happy to answer all my fishing questions! We had so much fun and would heartily recommend this tour to everyone. (Also excellent value for money!)

My friend and I had a brilliant time on this trip, it was a great way of exploring the area in a short amount of time. Ken was fantastic and went out of his way to make sure the passengers on board had a great experience and were all included. He had a great depth of knowledge of the area, informing us of local history as well as future development, and was happy to answer all questions thrown his way, he was fun and friendly, making me feel completely at ease (despite my fear of open water). Ken went the extra mile to ensure we had the opportunity to take the best photos and to see as much as possible. This trip is definitely a 'must do' if you are visiting the area.
