We had a Tropicana theme and even on a winter's day, it was warm with blue skies. We even got in the water and the paddle boards and lilypad were super fun! Can't wait to do it all again.

This time we were on the "Hoochie Mumma" for an afternoon cruise. The boat holds 45 but we had 34 comfortably. The boat is a little dated but the crew were fantastic. Again a lovely day out on the harbour
