"We've had a very pleasant trip on the Eureka II. For two days we were sailing in the Whitsundays Island Area. Mel and his crew were excellent boatsmen and hosts. The food was very good and they brought us the most beautiful and exclusive spots. It was great to be first on the Whitehaven beach before the crowds arrive. Next time Eureka II again!" - Jolanda
