Mariah Island
Port Davey
Bathurst Harbour

Great small boat/ship cruise. Only 16 guests on board. Excellent excursions. Knowledgeable guides/experts. Got to places others never reach. Great food. Needed some persuasion to get the skipper to go to Port Davey in fairly iffy weather. Never been so cold as we were in Bathurst Harbour - couldn't believe it. But an amazing place - and a real privilege to be there

Really good cabin - 205? On dining/lounge deck - not a premium cabin, but just been fitted with enormous new bed.

Two minus points. Wine offer is really mean considering cost of trip. Wine with meal is free, but pre-dinner drinks are charged. Coach trip when weather was rough was pretty poor. Perhaps the boat could have travelled down the coast to reduce the two hour journey each way. (And both the vehicle and the driver were elderly. When one of the younger guests asked for music, the driver ferreted around to find his prize tape - Max Bygraves Greatest hits.)
