"It was awesome! First the staff...Captain Tess is an absolute star, knows her stuff and a makes you feel safe and welcome on the boat...Host Gabby keeps you happy and fed the whole trip (great nachos!) and then we have deckhand Jamie...one of the best lads on the sea! Had a really great time and couldn't recommend them highly enough...loads of fun, the space to chill when you want or get involved, snorkelling was the best I've ever done (being taught to do it properly for the first time ever helped!), loads of time to relax at Whitehaven Beach, fun and games overnight, clean living areas with plenty of space...I would only ever book with these guys when I come back."
