Sailing from Manly with Becky
Val_David82, 26-01-2020
We went sailing with Becky. She is a very experienced sailor. Winds unfortunately didn’t cooperate being light and variable. We nonetheless had a good time and picked up some sailing tips and experience
Fantastic day

A great introduction to sailing and such an incredible experience to have done it on Sydney harbour. Our instructors were very friendly and gave us a great opportunity to gain a better understanding of the basics to sailing.
Impeccable customer service on an iconic sailing and guided glass-bottomed kayak adventure

We were hosted by Finn and his team for a wonderful tailored experience in Manly. Sailing on their Aqua Luna vessel, then paddling to a nearby, water-only accessible golden sand beach on two seated glass-bottomed kayaks with attentive hosts, and fun activities was a great team building experience. A must-do for those wanting to try something different, and memorable while engaging their teams this summer.

Def recommend!
Wondering school holidays sailing camp experience

My son enjoyed his first experience for 3-day sailing program. The free knot and boat setup session is a good start. There are various of games and competition apart from the sailing, which brings him and his friends a lot of fun. This is definitely a good place to exhaust teens and get them entertained. Parents also spent wondering time on the beautiful beaches.
Great day out on the harbour

Diana was a great guide/ instructor.
The 2 hour session was very educational and very active. I would recommend it to those who look to learn to sail.
