  • Great day trip with the Phantom. Was lucky enough to see some bottle-nos dolphins and 3 fishing little blue penguins. Was ashore on a beautiful island where there was a short trip to beautiful views and quite good snorkeling. Got wonderfully good homemade buffelunch o then continued glorious sailing back to the port. Nice hosts that made us feel more like our guests than "tourists". Good that the number of guests was Max 10, made sure we got plenty of space on the boat. Recommended.
