Family fun trips -
Design a fun trip to your requirements
Book the super duck exclusively for your family.
Start with a sea safari where you amble on, view the light house from the sea, watch the local fishing boats, admire the primal skills of luring and hauling a catch onto these minute boats with shear manpower. These skilled fishermen have the knack to fish successfully where all motor and modern technology fails. It forces one to realise that there is a difference in fishing for fun or out of necessity to provide for the pot.
Enjoy an encounter with the whales. Admire the playful grace of dolphins. Don mask and fins and swim with these beautiful creations.
Take your family to Pansy Island, pack sun screen and lunch and watch young and old find their inner child in pure enjoyment of what stark nature has to offer.
