Gods experience

We had morning rain which was so pleasure. Michelle and Stephen planned every step to make the trip special like you were having holiday in Hawaii. Stable sailing boat and plenty time to search turtle even we did not see one due to weather and time issues. It ‘s still great trip to us to experience sailing boat.

Great Time on great Boat

We had such a great time on the boat. Stephen is very friendly and it's very homey, like going sailing with your Dad (I assume :D) His wife, Michelle, even packed a little snack and flower, which was a lovely little extra. The turtles where a little bit more shy than usual but we still saw a bunch, some of them very close to our boat. We would definitely book this tour again. Thank you so much, Stephen and Michelle!!

A personal experience

This is a fantastic little tour. Stephen was great. We had a lovely time spotting over 25 turtles. It was very relaxed and comfortable and like no other. Highly recommend it.
