New Years Eve Testimonial
A very big Thank You for your fantastic service and for providing us an unforgettable experience of NYE on the harbour. Your hospitality and the boat position watching the fireworks really brought this experience to a new level, having previously experienced NYE on the harbour. The 1.5 hour cruising amongst the super boats/yachts was so amazing. My interstate guests were so happy and have said it was an unforgettable amazing experience on the harbour.
