Our Boat: The Most Luxurious in the Harbour! 

 

  • SPACIOUS & COMFORTABLE
    You’ll enjoy comfortable seating both inside and out. We keep our guest numbers low, so you have room to move and plenty of space to view the dolphins and other sights.
  • COMPLIMENTARY DRINKS & DELICIOUS BAKING
    Savour local award-winning wine, beer or soft drink, and indulge in our delicious home baking. It’s a little icing on the cake for our luxury experience!
  • A SMOOTH RIDE
    Because of the shape of our hull, you’ll get a smooth ride, so if you’re worried about seasickness for you or your family, rest-assured that our boat is stable enough to help reduce the chances of feeling queasy. On days with sea swells, we recommend Sea-Legs to manage nausea.
