Bummer that the wind picked up and we stayed in the shelter of coles bay area. Still had a great day. Saw some seals on the rocks and in the water and a lot of lovely islands and shoreline. Also listened to the history of the bay as we went along. The on board food was good and the trip enjoyable.

A fairly choppy ride around to Wineglass Bay, but the staff were excellent in providing care and assistance as needed. Plus the final lunch in the Bay’s quiet waters was good. And we saw many birds and dolphins during our time. Whales were there too, but remained under water while we were there.

The staff and knowledge were excellent, I should have read that you do go out in open sea my bad though, not on the company we were given ginger tablets before we went out unfortunately a few of us were sick so take some anti sea sick tablets just in case! The food was delicious and we even went right out to the seal rock which was awesome to see!
