This was one of the highlights of our holiday. Mark & Jimmy treated us like friends. We were fortunate enough to be the only booking for the morning and were able to enjoy a hands on experience that involved assisting the crew and steering the yacht. My girlfriend and I have had limited sailing experience so it was interesting to learn various aspects of it. Mark and Jimmy were extremely knowledgable in sailing and of the local area. We were treated to scones and a cheese platter and felt very comfortable while on board the yacht. I couldn't recommend this experience more highly and I extend huge thanks to the crew for their hospitality.

Mark was a friendly, approachable , adaptable captain who made us feel welcome and relaxed. He showed us all the local history of the derwent/ Hobart as well as the ins and out of the boat. Jimmy and Luke where friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable . Plenty of food for a yummy fresh fish lunch , hot potatoes and salad. Lovely desert to finish and local Tasmanian wines. Pity the lovely Derwent River was nice and flat reducing being under sail, but when given the opportunity as the winds increased we where able to experience the boat sailing. Really lovely day, and well worth the day out. Just need afew more fishing lures , sinkers etc and workable rods to help catch lunch 😉 Thankyou
