"Such an amazing time on Summertime. A cruisey 3 hours heading out to Whitehaven Beach which was absolutely incredible - picture perfect! Plenty of time spent taking pics and relaxing before heading back onto the boat for an incredible sunset sail. Snorkel spot on day two was beautiful, just a shame the visibility wasn't too great due to the high tide, but nothing we could do about that! Food was great, team super friendly and everything so well organised. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend."
