This is a more intimate cruise option with sleek lines and a maximum of only 18 passengers. The trip includes a swimming stop in summer, and be sure to bring your camera to capture some of the most breathtaking views around.

Please bring

  • Sensible clothing for winter & spring.
  • Layers are best, lots of thin layers as opposed to a few thick sweaters. The thin layers will trap more air, keeping you warmer. We also recommend beanies and gloves.
  • A warm jacket even on a summers day (just in case), swimwear and towel if you fancy a swim.

We provide

  • Free pizza & 1 glass of beer, wine or non-alcoholic drinks.
  • Wet weather clothing and blankets are available on all our tours.
  • We are flexible and able to customise any charter to your specific requirements.
  • Drinks are available on all tours for purchase.
