The waters and islands are beautiful and this is a good way to experience them. The shipwreck in Big Tub is not that spectacular. We were unable to hear most of the commentary over the noise of the boat's engines. The trip was spoiled by...More

This cruise was $50 and all I wanted was a ride to Flowerpot Island but they include a tour of two shipwrecks that I didn't really care to much about.

The boat ride was pleasant. Felt very secure. The trip over the wrecks lasted just long enough, I mean, how far long can you look at the top of an exceedingly tidy wreck? Flowerpot island was super. Another time I would go earlier in the...More

Hi there, we are visiting Tobermory end of September. Will the boats be available this time? We'll be with our three kids 8, 5 and 2. What are our best options to see the islands and shipwrecks and lighthouses? Shall we book boats/jets in advance? What is the best way to plan our trip? Thanks a lot!
