Excellent boat, Excellent Staff. Very well organized and coordinated. We never felt rushed but at the same time felt that we were doing interesting activities. Strongly recommend the Tai-chi class in the morning. Suggest waking up at 6.25 and not bother with the Sunrise. We are vegetarians and our request was accommodated with excellent choices at each of the 3 meals.

Amazing food, even better staff and fabulous rooms. My boyfriend and I did the two days, one night tour in December 2019 and would recommend it to anyone. The Mormont tai chi class is a must Abe then kayaking was so much fun! Clean boat with great amenities and awesome food and strong cocktails!
