  • Great cruise out to Stevensons Island. Even on a windy day like today the catamaran guarantees a smooth, enjoyable sailing. Very comfortable boat and helpful staff. The guided walk to the lookout is a plus. There is water, hot drinks ans even cookies on the way back.
  • Evening 1hour cruise was so relaxing and the complimentary wine, cheese and crackers were an added bonus. Very reasonably priced too. Definitely recommend.
  • Midafternoon Cruise to Stevensons Island. Boat picks you up right on the foreshore. Using a ramp to board. Plenty of space to move around inside and outside. Great views from the front and the rear of the boat. Comfortable seats in the main cabin. This cruise is a bring your own but they do supply tea coffee and biscuits on the return voyage. Smooth sailing all the way. Very friendly and informative staff especially on the guided tour of the island. (See review of island). There is a toilet on board and also on the island.
  • One of the best days of my life. Tim and Adam treated us like royalty. Very knowledgable and helpful. Do yourself a favour and take this trip.
  • We had an absolutely amazing time on board Dual Image for my sisters hens function. Tim and the team could not have been more professional and the service was exceptional. I could not recommend them enough! We will 110% definitely be back.
