It was absolutely amazing, unfortunately the weather was not so great, although sunny the wind made it cold. The team made the effort to get everyone on the boat blankets to keep up warm which was great. Would definitely visit again!

Very large catamaran with about 70 people on board. Sounds like a lot, but we were never in each other's way. Friendly crew. The scheduled 5 hours were not exhausted. The food was great, plentiful and it was grilled.
