Q&A with Mick Moore, Captain

Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?
Visitors are encouraged to take the wheel (helm) and steer the boat through tacking and gybing as we sail off the coast.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I've been sailing since I was a small boy.

I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?
Dress in layers, bring plenty of sunscreen, and wear light-soled shoes so as to not scuff up the boat. It's a large sailboat and likes to lean over a bit as we get going. Don't be alarmed, as she was designed to do so when she was racing. The boat will never tip over, so there's nothing to be afraid of.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Gratuity for your crew is not included, but very much appreciated. Please tip if you liked your trip!
