Took a boat ride out with ten others to Bonnet Island tonight departing just on dusk. Skipper Paul guided us out through Hells Gates back to moor at Bonnet Island where we learnt some of the history of the area and the lives of lighthouse keepers. We returned to the boat for some drinks and lovely cheeses, fruits etc after which it was time to return to Bonnet Island to find the fairy penguins who nest on the island. Spotted several of fairy penguins and were able to observe them close up. A nice quick trip home in the capable hands of Paul whose charm, stories and personality made it a very memorable experience. Thoroughly recommend this trip.
