The cruise was amazing, scenery was breath-taking, hosts on the boat entertaining and the oysters were delicious! The cruise directors were friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. There was amazing demonstrations of opening oysters and we learnt quite a lot from the staff. All in all an amazing experience.

We really really enjoyed the tour - though we‘re not usually into the touristy must-dos, this trip was really worth it! Beautiful views, a lot of info on the area, delicious oysters (I even learnt how to open them :)) - and a great host/captain/guide. Thank you Keith (?) you really made our day special!!!
