Great trip

Great trip and fine boat. The islands are simply great and sailing among them is quite unique. That being said, you weren't allowed to take your towels on the beach for some obscure reason and the lunch was rather poor, just one sandwich and some minor snacks that didn't quite still your hunger. And Mike, the captain who went on and on on how much money he had earned fishing here and there. All about the money - I missed the soul and genuine friendliness. But the islands are great.

Perfect day on the sea

Absolutely loved my day on Gungha II - Dolphins, snorkelling, lagoons, picture perfect scenery & being allowed to be fully involved in helping crew the boat was fab. Mike’s passion and knowledge of sailing is wonderful and he’s a jovial & friendly gent to spend time with. We had delicious snacks and lunch too. Would highly recommend as it felt like being on my own private trip with a small group of lovely people. And now I really want to learn to sail!! I’d give 10 stars if possible.

Just DO IT!

This year we travelled Australia and New Zealand for 4 months. At the end of our trip and at the last minute we booked in on Gunga II after being dumped by another operator. Lucky break! We had the most epic day with Mike with stories which were fascinating and memories of dolphins, penguins and tiny islands which delighted us. The snacks and lunch were healthy, tasty and spot on. We didn't want to leave the boat. Back in London now, a piece of our hearts are still there...

Schönster Tag!

It was a totally perfect day. Small group, really friendly stuff, good food! I just enjoyed every second on the boat. We went to a beautiful island where we could snorkel and walk around. I would recommend this tour to everybody who is looking for something relaxed, Special and not touristic.

Excellent value

The whole day was amazing and great value for money. The skipper was competent, relaxed and friendly, a lovely lunch and snacks. And the sailing broken up with a stop in a small bay to allow swimming, snorkelling, a short walk. Would absolutely recommend. AA+
