What a fantastic experience from the moment we stepped onto the transfer bus to being dropped back at our accommodation, we were couldn't fault one moment.
The staff were brilliant welcoming and attentive to our every need, we just relaxed and soaked up a most tranquil afternoon on beautiful Broome waters out to the Pearl farm where the crew lifted a pearl cage and opened a pearl shell chosen by one of the guest, revealing a large pear what a surprise !!!
Compliments to the chef, the food was amazing with ever course a wow!
The crew diligently served our drinks and food where ever we might have been on the boat and the main three courses elegantly with table service.
We couldn't recommend this experience more highly.
This sunset cruise was an absolute highlight. The 7 course degustation was deliciously impeccable, faultless in every way. The crew were pumped and provided a wonderful vibe to the cruise. The drinks flowed freely from the time we stepped onto the pickup bus until we finished the cruise. Thanks to everyone for a brilliant afternoon/evening.
Really lovely time. Communication and pickup was excellent. After stressing about what type of shoes we needed to wear (closed in or slides) the driver told us we could leave shoes on bus and go barefoot!! Yay!! Easy to get in tender and then again into boat. First drink of matso’s ginger beer on bus and then a glass of bubbles on arrival on the boat. Free flow drinks was good although only a choice of Pinot for red. Our table were all red drinkers so that was a little hard!! Understood tho that most people drink whites with seafood!! Good was very nice however we felt was not quite enough. We all left saying we wanted to get a burger on the way home. Maybe we missed out on some food as we mainly were at the front? A couple of extra courses or maybe just a cheeseboard would have made us less hungry. We had two skewers of prawns and chorizo, a couple of small fish style cakes, a taste of prawn meat, fish with rice and papaya salad then a small trifle style desert. Staff were lovely, friendly and helpful. Boat was lovely. Would recommend!!
From the pick up to the cruise itself everything was first class. The staff are fantastic and the food and drinks were amazing. The beautiful clear waters and the sunset were everything we had hoped for. We even saw a whale and her calf. Would definitely recommend. Thank you 😊
An unforgettable experience. The service was absolutely incredible, more importantly the staff were so friendly and genuine.
The food was made fresh from our chef on board. The wines & beers included were of high quality also.
Its a must when you are in Broome, you wont be disappointed. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Brilliant service, amazing food and a truly beautiful experience, not only did we see a working Pearl farm but we also had the pleasure in seeing Whales on our cruise. AMAZING
What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon/evening in Broome!! From start to finish the tour guides were organised, helpful, informative and FUN!! Could not have asked for anything more. The food was generous and delicious and drinks were plentiful and all served with a smile. There were a good number of guests on board so the boat never felt crowded and the cruise itself was wonderful sighting whales and the most superb sunset.
This wasn’t what the advertising led us to believe. It seems to be marketed as a premium afternoon, but in reality it’s an overpriced booze cruise. The boat is certainly not premium compared to other options. The fruit smoothie advertised didn’t exist, and being left with only soft drinks is really disappointing (not even a juice option) if you want a break from alcohol. We queried the smoothie and the answer was “oh I’ve heard about that. I’ve only worked here three weeks though so I don’t know why we don’t have it.” Your options on the bus are instead alcoholic ginger beer or water. The “exclusive onboard display of rare Broome pearls” never materialised either and when I asked I was told the cabinet was broken and I can’t see them. Food was okay, not really as “deluxe” as they make out. It’s just bulk catering style food. It’s a bit of a stretch to advertise it as a premium, exclusive experience. If you just want to drink your ticket price in booze, you won’t be let down.
A great day. Good crew. Well organised. Crew did their best to make us feel welcome and looked after us at all time. They seemed to work well together, just flowing along. A nice display of pearls from Cygnet Bay. The food was beautiful, lots of flavours, nicely decorated, Unfortunately in my opinion, the food quantity wasn't there. I didn't see it as a banquet or 7 course meal, more as a degustation. I highly recommend it,
This was a very professionally run afternoon and evening cruise making it a most enjoyable, seamless event for clients. Everything from pick-up across Broome to ferrying out to the cruise vessel and to settling on board was expertly managed. The crew were simply superb - professional, knowledgeable and approachable throughout the cruise. The seven course meal carefully staged across the afternoon and evening was superb - delectable prawns, pearl oyster, barramundi and a host of other sensational tastes were provided all matched with some very appropriate wines. Nothing was spared in terms of ensuring the enjoyment of passengers - the chance to do some whale watching was an added bonus. The fact that passengers relaxed and interacted in a most friendly way added to the overall enjoyment of the day. This is easily one of the best cruise-type experiences of this kind I have had anywhere in the world and it is a real delight to be able to acknowledge the superb way in which managers and crew delivered such a great afternoon. Very highly recommended!!
