“Very good experience. The skipper Howie is very knowledgable and loves sailing. Go to the restroom before you board as there is no toilet on the boat. You might want to eat before as well - otherwise there is some grenola bars offered on board. Plan some extra time for parking as Queens Quay street is one big construction site until mid 2015. This was my first, but definitely not my last trip with Gone Sailing Adventures.”
“Definitely go! Perfect way to spend any occasion or to simply do something beyond the everyday routine!!”
