Had an amazing experience sailing with Mark and Jenny. I would 100% recommend to anyone down in the area. You can chill out or help steer the sail boat which was really cool. Mark and Jenny were so lovely and has some incredible sailing stories.

Fantastic day’s sailing with very experienced and entertaining skipper Mark and his lovely second mate Corinne. Couldn’t have been better! Extra bonus was seeing the dolphins.

Thank you Tae for your review. Yes your five year old was excited about steering "Panacea". Even tho the other guests had never been on yacht before they certainly enjoyed moving around the deck particularly when we came across dolphins.
