I have been back in the UK for a month now and I still cant get the memory of my trip on Siska out of my head! I never really got the chance to thank the three people who were responsible for the best three days of my life. Damian, Brooke and Luke you guys obviously have a real connection, because I felt like you had all been working together for years and was really shocked when I discovered this was not the case. I hope you guys are still loving your jobs as much as you were when I was on board. Thank you all so much, and Brooke keep looking as good as you do! Cheers, Tim.
Racheal And Stephen » Cambridgeshire, England
We had our sailing adventure aboard 'Siska' - April 2003. It was a voyage we'll never forget.
Thank you to Damian, Ka-u and Hayden for doing a marvellous job. We felt like the boat was home after a while and didn't want to leave.
We felt privelidged to of sail aboard her especially with people from other boats photographing her as we went by. We loved it when she actually sailed and showed what she could do. Very fast, Very leant over-brilliant!!!
We loved the Scuba Diving/Snorkelling, visit to Whitehaven Beach, food, drink, music, other guests, scenery, sunsets, everything.
What more is there to say-we highly recommend the 'Siska'. Was a lot of fun.
Thank you Southern Cross and fellow sailors.
The Forcey Family » Australia
We've just returned from 3 fantastic days on the Southern Cross--the highlight of our Qld holiday. Our son Eric, (age 14) said "it was the best three days of my life!" Our crew, Captain Dave and host, George were so professional, friendly and eager to please, that we all had a fun-filled, relaxing time. We enjoyed meeting everyone from different countries and having them delight in our wonders down under. The Southern Cross is a former America's Cup racing boat, so we left everyone else in our wake! This was a holiday we'll never forget, and will be wanting to repeat again in the near future. Thanks for everything!

I was only in australia for 3 weeks and only in airlie beach for 5 days but i can honestly say i would recommend anybody to have a go and i can't wait to come back and do it all again.
