We booked the twilight 3 hours cruise and it was a great experience. The departure point was convenient and easy to find, there was a good amount of people onboard and the staff was very friendly. The food offered wasnt amazing, but it's constantly flowing and there is a lot of variety. The sparkling wine was nice and the 2nd bottle we purchased at the bar reasonably priced. I'd do this again.

We had booked a sunset cruise for 5th Jan but unfortunately my husband came down with a sickness bug that day - I called and left a message and sent an email in advance of the cruise to advise that we couldn't make the trip for fear of passing the bugs to other guests and that he really wasn't well. As we were leaving for the UK the next day, I asked if the cruise could be transferred to my father, who lives in Perth, to use on another date. I did not get any response at all until I chased yesterday - only to be told that my father would have to pay another $50pp rebooking fee! Not the kind of customer service you would expect for totally unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances.

Our sunset cruise was disappointing due mainly to the weather and our own unpreparedness. Although it was summer we saw very little twilight sunset due to much cloudiness and above normal wind conditions creating strong waves for a 65-foot yacht carrying 24 passengers and two crews. My wife was unwell due to seasickness, could have taken some tablets before hand, if we knew better. Crews were caring and trying what they could by providing ginger lollies and recommending us to move to the back of the yacht. It was much better for my wife at the back. Food served was average. If we were to do this again we would charter the yacht together with a group friends to a tailor-made itinerary, organise our own food and drinks and choose a day when the weather is really fine. This well build yacht with teak timber deck powered by wind and a diesel engine is available for group charter 24/7.

This is a sail boat yet we spent a considerable amount of time under engine power, a lot of time in the harbours and only really the last 20 minutes on the open sea, again under engine power mostly. We still had a great sunset, with great nibbles and drinks and the crew were friendly and knowledgeable.

Despite having a voucher and confirmatory emails we were not on the guest list, although this was quickly resolved upon showing the email - so make sure you have proof of your confirmation. A good experience but it lacked the wow factor.

Save your money and catch the ferry over. Just keep in mind its a 2 hr trip each way on a old sail yacht. Which leaves you only three hours on the mainland.
