Fantastic cruise with a great crew! The area is beautiful and it is well worth seeing the cliffs and beaches from the open water. While we weren't able to do the whole tour route due to wind direction, the guides more than made up for it by spending more time in the areas we could go to - which lucky for us was the cliffs, which were incredible! Excellent value for money!

Was an excellent experience for my self and both my children and their grandmother. My fighter has Atxia Cp and getting on and off wasn’t an issue at all. The amazing things we go to see was lifetime experience for us all. The fact we got to go fact as well was so much fun for the kids as well

I really enjoyed the boat ride around Jervis bay. We spotted a dolphin and took in the amazing view, beaches and commentary by the crew members. Their is also a bar on board so sit back relax and enjoy. Like I did.

Really enjoyed 2hrs on the beautiful Hussinson harbour. Wasn’t planed but we were very happy to see the offer of harbour boat trips on on our day trip to Husky from Kiama. Money well spent.

Guide was funny and knowledgeable of areas, great experience would recommend
