If you want to experience a little more friendliness & personal experience than the ‘sheep herding cruises’, I would recommend a trip on The Providence V. It is a unique sailboat built for a unique experience. The crew were friendly & added to the personal experience of the trip. The boat accommodated for a number of guests, but at no time did it feel crowded or if you were crammed together. The complete round trip was enjoyable with the skipper filling us in on what was coming up & had well versed local knowledge of the islands, the snorkelling spot, & the waters. Even though we did hoist the sails, the winds weren’t in our favour for the whole sail, so relied on the engine for a bit, but we cannot control nature. Overall, I would recommend this experience if you want a unique day trip (& a sunset sail).
Did both the sunset sail and they snorkeling day trip. I’ve been to multiple countries and done these sort of trips but I’ve never had a better trip then with Pete and Oscar. You can tell how much they love there job and how hard the want to make people’s trip amazing. The snorkel spot was amazing, Whitehaven beach is crazy good, they answer any questions you have, the sail boat is awesome perfect for a cheeky tan there n back without being rocked around on the boat, food was quality good. But the best part was Pete and Oscar these lads took care of us all day no matter what these dudes are legends. If you come to airlie beach you have to do this trip. I did another like it and these guys amazed me.
What a day!!!! Had the most awesome experience on the providence first off what a masterpiece the boat is! The crew did a fabulous job well organised all very friendly even let us help with the sail. The travel to the islands was lovely lying out in the sun and the snorkeling as well as Whitehaven beach just spectacular!! Cheers to you all 🥂
Whitehaven beach was stunning and the snorkelling although not the best conditions was good. I thought the sailing would have been relaxing. The sales did go up but unfortunately the engine was never shut off. Apparently the yacht was needed the sunset cruise, so on a tight timeline. The crew were friendly however not very professional with little customer service experience. 2 of the 3 crew appeared very new and lacked the training for such a position. Next time I go to Whitehaven I’ll choose a faster boat with experienced crew.
Unfortunately, the online marketing did not match the experience. The boat is a lovely replica and moved through the choppy conditions nicely. The crew seemed mostly disinterested, with the captain speaking poorly to crew on a number of occasions. The food did not reflect the online marketing. The new deckhand (who indicated he had never been to the lookout) was left to guide guests on the island. He came with no watch and so made all the guests leave Whitehaven much earlier than required. Of the 2 hours allocated we had to sit waiting for the tender to return for over half an hour. The return home was punctuated by the crew having difficulty pulling down a single sail and a guest receiving a whip from the rope across the shoulder and neck.
