We got a call a few weks ago – “We are 11 persons who wants to cruise Gothenburg archipelago! Can you arrange a nice cruise, serve some good food and show us around in the archipelago?” Wow, this guy really hit the spot – that’s what we do!
So we discussed what he would like to experience, what kind of food he wanted us to serve and the date was set. The cruise went up to the northern part of the Gothenburg archipelago. The scenery is a bit different here, compared to the southern part. It feels a little bit wilder here, even though many people lives on the islands Öckerö, Björkö and Hönö (the letter Ö in Swedish can be translated to Island). The sun was shining and all went up to the flybridge, having some cocktail snacks and a glas of sparkling wine. We spent 1,5 hours cruising, telling stories and serving the guests before we moored at Hönö-Klåva.
This island is a real beauty. The fishing cottages are present round the harbour, some restaurants and a lot of fishing boats coming and going. Also, sitting in the after-deck, looking south, you’ll see the famous lighthouse Vinga!
Time for something to eat! The Westcoast buffé was presented in the salon. Heering, Sealife’s graved salmon, fresh shrimps, fresh mussels, freshly baked bread (Yes we bake on board!), multiple choise of cheese, dessert and much more. The dinner started with a mussel soup as apetizer!
It’s actually very nice sitting in the afterdeck, eating and socialize. The environment on board, invites to a cozy athmosphere.
Our guests were very pleased with the dinner and the coffe was served as the captain started up Sealife again, heading back to Gothenburg. We choosed to cruise in the open sea. The sun was preparing for sunset in the west, shining on everyone! An hour later we were back in Gothenburg again.
Todays cruise is a very good example of our popular 4-hour cruise. It’s a good mix of exploring the archipelago, eat a great coastal influenced dinner and visit the islands!
Looking forward having you on board M/Y Sealife!
