Overall rating

It was a fantastic cruise 🛳 We had wonderful weather and finding and boarding the vessel was very easy. The staff were excellent. The tour guide commentary was fantastic and informative with some light comical moments that added to the experience. The gentleman's assistant was quite lovely. I had an interesting conversation with her. Both staff members are the right type of people to be employed in such a role.

The Guides voice was muffled by the poor sound system. We could not hear him clearly. The mix up with people who paid for scones, jam and cream was an indication of lack of an administrative process.

It was a pleasant experience. The captain was very informative and it was nice to view the scenery and the birdlife while travelling in the comfort of the boat

The commentary was great and enjoyed the boat ride. Very pleasant trip. Scones were yum. Staff friendly!

Was a very interesting and relaxing trip. The staff were very friendly and nice.
