The tour guide will give a brief talk on the walk to the berthed vessels.
The tour guide will then hand over your group to the #1 boat owner to talk about their vessel (for about 10-15 minutes), then #2 owner, then #3 owner, then #4 owner.
No refunds or alternative tours will be provided if you are late. Please see ticketing Terms & Conditions below.
