Overview

Sailing Cruises - The Best Kept Secret about Monkey MiaMonkey Mia is brimming with a huge variety of wildlife. All year round there are dolphins, dugongs and huge loggerhead and green turtles. In the warmer months they’re joined by sea-snakes, sharks (our largest a 4.5 metre tiger shark), sting-rays, flying-fish and the long-tom, a fish that skips across the sea on its tail. Rare highlights are manta rays & whales.The best way to see this magnificent wildlife is by cruising with Monkey Mia’s wildlife specialist; the internationally famous, fabulous, 60’ (18m) pure sailing catamaran, Shotover - “the nature boat”. You’ll be awed by this spectacular, deserted piece of paradise, where Nature overwhelms.
