Thanks Csit22 I am glad you enjoyed setting sail with us. The wildlife always add to the experience. Sharing the ocean with humpback whales is a privilege however I think the dolphins stole the show.

Had an awesome time on a sunset cruise. The catamaran was well set up for a perfect time of cruising under sail to watch a beautiful sunset. Will be doing that again.

A wonderful sailing experience. The owner Brian Pearson was a great host. The boat sparkled. All in all more than expected.

Third time we have done this cruise & we will definitely be back again. Great weather, relaxing afternoon sail. Love being able to bring our own snacks & drinks. This will be an activity we will be bringing all our interstate visitors.
