Joined the trip on a perfect march day - sunny with just a light breeze. Skipper Jim’s intro speech set the tone for the day - personal and extremely friendly. Both he and Bindi know a great deal about the sounds and loved to share their enthusiasm for this beautiful place. For those wanting more, the boat’s little library was perfect, old photos, descriptions etc.
Our trip took us all over the sound. Each mail drop was accompanied by a little tale and little gossip with the residents who were all very happy to see friendly post boat arrive.
Postal deliveries aside, Jim managed to fit in a very informative session on how the mussel farms worked (with models!), a great lunch stop, a sail past some seals and time for a short bush walk for those who wanted it.
Though all this was great enough, it was topped by the visit by a pod of dolphins. They clearly loved playing with the boat just as much as we liked seeing them. They swam around, raced past and generally had a great time - just as we did, and Jim and Bindi too. Such a great sight.
Obviously, weather and wildlife encounters will vary by trip, but whatever you find, this team will make sure you have a great day.
Finally, a word on the new boat ((November 17 I think) – it’s comfortable, has plenty of space both inside and out – perfect for all those great sights
