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+

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.

Awesome sailing trip!

We saw dolphins (even a baby) and a penguin. Thanks to our captain Mike who spotted them! We made a stop on a small island where we did a small hike to a lookout. The colors of the sea were amazing blue and clear. All in all, it was a great trip!

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...
