Thanks for the wonderful review Rebecca. It was really nice to have you and your friends down for a paddle. We realise it can be a pain for our guests by not offering an EFTPOS facility...we have thought long and hard about introducing it but the logistics of this service on our really busy days is the only reason we...

Thanks so much for taking the time to review us on Tripadvisor. We love providing these boats for people to use and are always delighted to hear when families have had such a good time. Our new Hobie catamarans really are a fantastic boat....they are simple to sail and no boom removes the chance of going home with a headache! More
