This was a great experience with a very professional but fun crew. The views are spectacular and you get to participate in the sailing experience, cranking up the sails and even driving the boat! This is certainly a pulse-racing experience, though never once did we feel unsafe. All in all, a great time and we would definitely recommend it...and do it again!

This was the highlight of our sydney adventures. Even better then expected. The rain didn't seem to bother us at all except glad we brought a change of shoes and clothes. Crew was amazing, and gave us an adventure of a lifetime. They were all so experienced and lovely to chat with. We were safe and the boat was incredible. Thanks for an awesome experience and we've told all our family here that this is a MUST TO DO!
