Just to let you know we all had a FANTASTIC time, the ship was wonderful, the crew absolutely, unbelievably helpful and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble for them and the food was beautiful, cooked to world class standards and worthy of a "3 Hat Restaurant" rating. Needless to say we all are keen to do another cruise so I am sure you will be hearing from us again. Having the boat to ourselves was an added bonus. It will be hard to return to our daily routine and fending for ourselves.
Island Escape Cruise 2013
Can you please pass this on to the Captain and crew aboard the Island Passage.
Tricia and I would like to once again say how much we enjoyed the recent trip around the Bay of Islands. We were especially impressed with the attention to safety which I observed was a key feature at all times.
Tricia and I are used to much more vigorous action but the more passive activities that were provided made for forced relaxation and were most enjoyable.The food was glorious and we are both home now and trying to shed the few extra kilos gained on the trip.
The genuine humour on board from the captain right through to the cooks in the galley made for lots of laughter and joyous moments and I could see that it was always coming from the right place and very real. The tours and history lessons from Luci gave me knowledge of N.Zs culture and were most enlightening.
I could go on but I think you can see we had a great time on the tour and in fact, on shore. We will do another cruise with you maybe next year and may bring some friends with us.
Thanks again for the cruise and may all your guests be pleasant.

Just a quick note to say thanks to Lauren for all her hard work getting us all across the line for the sailaway! It was an awesome experience and one which was made even better by the professionalism of the organisation. We look forward to more of the same in the future. Lou and I will definitely be back, and I’m sure our friends who missed out this time we’ll definitely be on board next time! They all hate us now after seeing the pics and video!
Shag Islet Sail Away Langkawi to Phuket 2013
Am still on a high from the adventure overall and all of Laura's arrangements went perfectly to plan, so a gold star to her! Still enjoying showing the photos I have so far printed.
Still have to also look at YOUR photos, glimpses of which were on the big screen that last night with the bellydancer. She was VERY good - does she do it for you every trip? I enjoyed every moment of that.
Have certainly acquired an interest in some new styles of eating, thanks to the different places you took us to!
Kay Parks is single (by choice) 60 something can’t swim and had never been on a yacht before in her life!
Aegean Yacht Rally 2012
I arrived home yesterday having had one of the best holidays. I speak on behalf of all the group when I say a huge thank you for all you did to make the holiday such a success. The train booking and the canal trip worked out very well. Your attention to detail was outstanding. The canal hire could not have been better and as far as I was concerned was the best of the three I have done.

I would be very remiss, if I didn’t express a vote of satisfaction and gratitude to Trevor, Maggie, you, Tommo and Kristy for everything that you did to make sure that this Rally was memorable and enjoyable.
Your company and friendship were outstanding, your planning thorough and detailed, and nothing was too much trouble. All the crews were easy to get along with, and friendships formed easily.
