“Dear Tamsyn, Rob, Wellington, Gary… and crew,

 I can’t begin to express my gratitude for making an already amazing experience even more unforgettable! Your business exceeds expectations and am so happy to say that there is no other that reaches your level. I have been on 2 other boats since I found my love for being in the Whites environment and yours will always be my number one. I recommend you to all who ask as your professionalism from booking to long after launch is beyond measure! 

I look forward to my next trip on the Blue Pointer, which I hope will be sooner than later.

 Thank you for the entire experience.

See you soon
