Overnight and Day Charters

Overnight and Day Charters

We recommend

On a budget? – We recommend opting for the bed and breakfast accomodation package and pairing this with a scenic evening cruise.

With a group? – Book out the boat for a half day charter, or evening cruise. Rally your friends together and cruise in style. Enjoy lunch and drinks afloat. Dare a swim, explore ashore and sunbathe on deck.

Diving enthusiasts? – Opt for a full day charter to allow time to visit multiple dive sites in the day, relax for some lunch in between and enjoy the hot showers on deck!

Wanting to explore? – Enquire about fully catered overnight cruises where we stop at different anchorages each day, and organise all the adventures and activities your heart desires.
