Not great
Mary_M

Very rough…they should have canceled as many passengers were ill. My husband was sick the day of the experience and they would not cancel even though he had Covid symptoms….very irresponsible! Luckily I chose to take a friend rather than him.

Despite weather the sunset was pretty Seas were really rough so it was super windy. Didn’t feel like enough seating. Crew were good, couple of drunk people on board could have been dangerous as boat was rocky!

Waste of money
Craig

Overall, the trip was fairly boring. Compared to other sunset cruises in various locations I have been on, this was the worst. The Sea Darwin cruise for example, at a very similar price, stops and a crew member grabs fresh hot fish & chips for all passengers. There is no mid or light beer option, which nowadays is standard everywhere. The complimentary canapes are just a snack that quickly runs out minutes after setting off. Honestly, give this one a miss and spend your money on something else. Grab a couple of drinks and a great feed at Hemingway Brewery at the marina.

Sunset cruise

Enjoyed cruise even though we didn’t get a sunset due to overcast weather. Captain and support staff very good and interactive. However would not recommend cruise for anyone who suffers seasickness due to potential bouncy conditions. Gave average due to lack of sunset and bumpy ride. Still enjoyable.

Whilst the seas were a little choppy and the clouds hid the setting sun, the trip out and back from the marina was well managed by the skipper and staff. Canapés and complimentary drinks were tasty and much appreciated

We had a great time. Very relaxed atmosphere and the crew were great. We were fortunate enough to go on an afternoon where we had the sunset and also a full moon rise. It was spectacular.

It was pouring rain, and we knew there was very little chance of seeing a spectacular sunset, but the rest of the guests thought the same thing, the crew were so welcoming and friendly. A fabulous trip.
