'Exceptional experience This is a great trip and you feel like a real sailor or even if you are not experienced. Yes you have to be ready for a different experience from the usual tourist trip. But this is what makes it special.'

'Fantastic day on the water! An absolute highlight of our holiday. Paul, Mike and Emma were friendly and professional. We had an exhilarating day of sailing - great for experienced and novice sailors.'

'An excellent sailing trip We had a fantastic day out on the boat which the crew made even better by pushing the boat to its limits for a brilliant sail. The day also included a very tasty lunch and a stop off at a secluded beach. A typical Kiwi crew with a great "can do" attitude, and a good local knowledge which kept us even more interested. A highly recommended trip even if you're not a sailor.'
