Well, I was a little bit disappointed because we didn't go between the monument and the cliff... And this is a part of your tour in your flyers and TV advertisements. Especially because the other boat did it... I've got the video if you want to see it... so I don'y understand why we didn't do it. Also, our tour was shorter compare to the other boat they stop in some spots where we didn't go like to two last islands before Antarctica where they are plenty of seals. I came with my nice and because it wasn't my first time with you I told her about the surprise at the monument and the islands full of seals but we didn't go... And we finished the tour at least 25mn before the other boat. Anyway, some parts where great, like the dolphins we saw on the way back. We were sincerely welcome for the breakfast and the lunch. Your people were very nice friendly and professional. Special mention for them and for your people in Hobart's office. Don't forget Nick our guide and bus driver.

This was the second time for me on this tour. Started out on a pleasant day but with a predicted change in the weather which crew advised of in advance so there was option to back out for the more timid traveller. We stayed on and had good conditions out to seal rocks for photo ops. Big blow and rain on the way back made return exciting if somewhat uncomfortable. We thought it great - some travellers were more troubled by it. Small kids on boat became distressed- maybe not the tour for under 5’s unless perfect conditions.
