This is one the most scenic, best value cruises that have been on. The skipper and wife go out of their way to make sure that you see everything possible. The scones and cream so tasty.

So very friendly and great value for money. Educational and operators are so very accommodating. Could be inside or outside so weather does not matter. Afternoon tea was provided that was delicious. Would certainly recommend as a tourist local or otherwise
