Hi The big 6 It was a fun time thanks for the review. Greg

We enjoyed our time on the morning cruise but found it distracting when Greg (the captain) took 4 business calls mid tour. Not very professional in our book. There also wasn't much sitting room for the 30 people crammed on to the boat.More

Wonderful day cruising with Greg and Mel. The weather gods were kind. We had dugong experiences, up close and personal, dolphin viewings, met some loggerhead turtles and we found sponge dolphins. The crew was very professional and informative.
