The Hutchinsons are a wonderful famiy team—a real mom and pop shop—that take visitors out to sea, and treat them to a wonderful, wonderful time, complete with homemade food, beautiful views, good conversation, and your own attempt to captain the ship. An afternoon excellently spent.

We had a unique afternoon aboard the catamaran! Niel was super friendly and welcoming. He taught us the basics of sailing and let us navigate the catamaran across this beautiful landscape. Would recommend this to everyone visiting Dakhla.
