Owner description: Sailing Cruises - The Best Kept Secret about Monkey MiaMonkey Mia is brimming with a huge variety of wildlife. All year round there are dolphins, dugongs and huge loggerhead and green turtles. In the warmer months they’re joined by sea-snakes, sharks (our largest a 4.5 metre tiger shark), sting-rays, flying-fish and the long-tom, a fish that skips across the sea on its tail. Rare highlights are manta rays & whales.The best way to see this magnificent wildlife is by cruising with Monkey Mia’s wildlife specialist; the internationally famous, fabulous, 60’ (18m) pure sailing catamaran, Shotover - “the nature boat”. You’ll be awed by this spectacular, deserted piece of paradise, where Nature overwhelms.

I was travelling with three female friends. We are aged 59 - 68years. We had an absolutely fabulous time on this beautiful boat. Our first sailing was the sunset tour - a beautiful sunset, whilst enjoying our BYO food and drinks. The young crew, Quinn and Bodhi were great fun and very informative. We knew that the boat was an open deck, so we dressed appropriately and had no issues with being cold. Definitely one of the best things to do at Monkey Mia and certainly a good deal - paying $99 for the 3hr day sailing tour - with the sunset sailing being an added bonus.

It was a Priveledge to experience this award winning Catamaran . The staff were very helpful, friendly and informative . Cold drinks, loo, blankets and sun screen were all available and all our needs were met. Very good value for money, including sunset cruise as well as 3hr day cruise. Sea had cooled to 19c which meant sea life were moving toward warmer waters. However we still saw Dugongs, dolphins, Manta Ray and turtles. Lovely to sail and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this beautiful place.
