We had 3 fantastic days sailing on the Derwent Hunter with our children aged 9 & 8. We sailed, snorkelled & explored deserted beaches. The crew were great particularly captain Rob who taught us how to navigate by the stars, how to do fishermens knots & was very knowledgable about the area. The food was great & there was plenty of it. It was a great family experience. Thankyou Rob, Hewie & Abbie.

To all of the crew.  What a fantastic trip.  We were extremely well looked after.  Brilliant sailing, turtles, dolphins.  Great snorkeling and bush walks too!  You also told fantastic stories, jokes and information on the islands.  More highlights for us was the food from William, but in particular the professionalism of you all and the feeling of being relaxed and safe.  Thanks for an experience we will never forget.  Once in a lifetime.  Kind Regards and many thanks”

This sailing trip was the highlight of my whole holiday in Australia.  We had a fabulous crew, learned about the stars, ships and animals, we even spotted some turtles, dolphins and many wonderful beautiful colored fish when snorkeling.  The food was very good, there was up to six meals a day.  I enjoyed sleeping on the deck, watching the stars and being woke by the sun.  Thanks Richard, Rob and William for this extraordinary experience!
