Maritime identity Graeme Butler (‘good natured sea dog’) offers a ‘magic and un-intrusive’ insight into the world of the marine mammals. His 60-foot yacht Gemini Galaxsea has plenty of deck space for relaxing. It is equipped with a ‘swim bar’ at the stern. Butler’s offer a second trip free, if you don’t see dolphins or whales.
