Awesome day out with Ntalie onboard Vigilant. Weather was a bit rough so she kept checking that everyong was ok. Also knows the area very well so we ended up in the right spot for some swimming without the big waves. Highly recommend going with Vigilant.

It was the best trip of ny life. The boat itself was beautiful and the sail was absolutely gorgeous. Wished we had spent more time at the island which we got dropped, 1 hour was too short.

We went with this trip after reading all of the great reviews and now have to add our own! Excellent day, gorgeous boat and very friendly crew. Couldn’t fault it. Probably couldn’t add anything that hasn’t already been said but the freshly picked salad for lunch from Nat’s garden was a great addition to the trip. We saw snorkelled, swam, walked up to a beautiful look out, saw dolphins on the way home and overall really enjoyed the competency of the sailing. Very impressive. If you are looking to book- do it now! Thank you Nat and Anton.

First off... OMG, what an awesome experience we had cruising aboard Vigilant. Very knowledgeable captain, very tidy, well looked after boat. (Absolutely gorgeous if you ask me!) Stop-over at the island was just perfect, so many things to do, whether it be kayaking, swimming, sunbathing, or a lovely island walk. Lunch was amazing. So nice and refreshing... Can’t wait to do it again!!
