"Excellent crew, excellent vibe, excellent food, EXCELLENT. 10/10 would recommend!"
"My friends and I have just come off The Hammer 2 day/1 night sailing adventure and could not even believe how beautiful it was and how much fun we had! The crew were hilarious and extremely responsible, we all felt really safe and comfortable around them. The food was delicious and so much if it, with 2 breakfast, 2 lunches, 1 dinner and a bunch of snacks being included (NACHOS for afternoon tea anyone?). The bathrooms and showers aboard The Hammer were always clean, and to be honest we didn't even need the showers as we were in and out of the beautiful ocean so often. We saw so much marine life including sea turtles, parrot fish, and beautiful coral gardens, and we fed these massive batfish of the side of the yacht where they would come close enough to touch! If you chose to sleep on a bed rather than on the deck (not me) it was comfortable and a good temperature to sleep in. I slept on the deck and listened to my hilarious group belt singing and having an amazing time while I was laughing, and looking up at the full moon above and all of the stars! All in all, an absolutely INCREDIBLE experience and one I will recommend to everyone I come across. Cheers guys!!"
"Booked the 2 day 2 night on the Hammer boat... The boat was awesome. There was cabins below deck to sleep but it was beautiful weather so we chose to sleep on the deck underneath the stars which was amazing. The crew were awesome, took us to a few of their special snorkelling stops and fed the fish (they even found us a Nemo fish). Nicki even took us to his secret beach near Whitehaven Beach! I was worried travelling solo that I would be by myself but the people on the boat were awesome, the crew were really friendly and facilitated a fun social scene (shout outs to Jared, Georgie and the crazy Brazilian guys!) All around, a great trip. Definitely worth the money. Only downside was the trip was the trip had to end!!"
"We sailed on 'Hammer' with Ellen, Dani and Niko. They were a fantastic crew and the sailing was incredibly fun."
"Thanks for a brilliant 2 days sailing on Hammer - I had a fantastic time! The islands were beautiful, the crew were fun, friendly and professional and the boat was clean and comfortable and we had a great time sailing it. It was also a great opportunity to meet some really lovely people... Thanks again!"
