Australia Day 2018 Cruise Celebrations

What an absolute pleasure it was to be on the harbour celebrating Australia Day on the Silver Spirit. Silver Spirit crew, Bradley, Thomasin and staff's hospitality was five star. Their 60ft cruiser was fantastic, very clean and comfortable. Thomasin's customer service from the first phone call enquiry I made could not have been better. She was fantastic. I would highly recommend Silver Spirit.

Very Enjoyable

Had a lovely cruise on this vessel on Australia Day. Staff were very professional & friendly. There was only a small number of guests on the cruise which enabled you to comfortably access all areas of the vessel.
