"Both Ben and I went on this tour last week. We were pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable it was, the views back over Airlie at Sunset were sublime, happy to recommend. It reminded us of a similar tour we did in Hawaii, just this was better."
"What a pretty old boat, cocktails were spot on!"
"Thank you to skipper Adrian and his assistant Jess who ensured our sunset sail trip was a marvellous experience! The welcome drinks and canap├ęs package were delicious. As one of our party was coeliac the affected person was given a free cocktail of choice and extra fresh strawberries. Yum! The sailing around the harbour showed lovely views and we enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended."
"My mum and I went on the sunset sail on the Providence boat and it was awesome! The sail was very relaxing, great atmosphere and friendly staff. I definitely recommend and would do it again!"
