Thank you Marco, Robyn, Monica, Murray and Joseph.  Utter perfection!  Your thoughtful, informative, humorous and caring ways and attention to detail made it a dream vacation.  Marco thank you for always being ready with a great story and ideal suggestions for awesome experiences.  Robyn you are a chef extraordinaire! Every meal was delicious and beautifully presented.  Monica your sweet smile and kind ways made us feel at home.  You all are such great friends and great company!!  We loved every moment aboard with you!
With Love,
Kim, Mac, Jacqueline, Victor and Macawley


New Years 2011-2012:

We were really pleased -- the staff were courteous, went out of their way to please, and Captain Marco certaintly knew the area very well.

The food was great and well-balanced and the cabins were kept very nicely.  In fact, they (the crew)  all worked non-stop -- I think it rather put Rob off the idea of EVER buying a boat rather than chartering one!  My kids really enjoyed the inflatable chariot and the fishing and also (slightly bizarrely), the Molton Brown toiletries!

It was a great charter experience and also, a great choice of boat/crew for a large family.

Cheers, AL
