What an amazing chilled day on the sea. The owners where fabulous and made us feel very welcome. There were only 8 guests altogether which was nice and not crowded at all. The schooner is stunning and the weather was fantastic. We sailed around the bays and snorkelled. We were served tea and biscuits and fresh fruit. Michaela realised we hadn't brought our lunch with us by accident so she rustled something up for us which was lovely of her. Overall a really relaxed day sailing around the bay and taking in the fabulous views. What more could you want.
It was a wonderful day at sea. In total we were six guests + the two sailing ship owners. It was a social get-together. We sailed along the coast and then stopped in front of a bay where we could swim and there are even two baddle boards that you can use. It was just fantastic. At the end of the tour we sailed past Cathedral Cove. Unfortunately we didn't see any dolphins that day but a shark. The tour is highly recommended !!!!
We had the most fabulous day trip. Avon and Michaela we absolutely delightful, sharing their skills and knowledge, with some first class stories from their travels. Would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys being on the water. Such a beautiful yacht, it was an absolute privilege to spend over 6 hours on such a vessel. Enjoy!
The hosts were so kind. Everything was amazing, stunning views. Mikaela and her husband made us feel comfortable on the sailboat.
