Fantastic and worth every penny.

Within the first 20 minutes of being on the island, I had learned more about Brisbane's history than I have in 9 years of schooling and 27 years of living in Brisbane. Not on were the presenters highly informative but made the whole experience very enjoyable from start to finish. Now i want to take my family back there but also my friends visiting from over seas. A beautiful lunch was prepared and the boat trip was relaxing and at a nice pace for everyone. The wildlife was also a delight from the butterfly to the roos that met us as we hopped off the boat and the gorgeous bird life. Recommend that anyone and everyone should visit St Helena with this great crew and get lost in the visual historic story telling.

Great day out on the bay!

Very entertaining right from the start. All staff were engaging, helpful and informative. Lunch was terrific and catered for my dietary needs. Some walking involved which may not suit everyone but my family managed to push a pram around ok.
