The Wildcard is supported by multiple tenders or ‘Dory’s’ as they are fondly called by the crew, allowing ultimate flexibility for your travels if different group members have differing interests. One tender could be off exploring the coastline, another fishing and another taking guests ashore for a hike – don’t forget the kayaks too! The opportunities are endless. As the crew on board say, ‘A bay a day, an ocean less travelled’.
