We are starting off the year with our first post about a little adventure I had. Nat couldn’t make it this time so I took the other half along.
High Tea on the High Seas is a great afternoon out. Especially if you like lovely little treats. And there are plenty of them.
On arriving on the Ferry you are seated in the Portsea Lounge with expansive views of the ocean and white table linen. You can select a glass of wine or bubbles or a beer from a wine list of local producers. Once the ferry starts its journey your high tea is served.
Little fancy finger sandwiches, savoury slices and gourmet pies, followed by scones with jam and cream if you would like to have a Devonshire tea. On your return you have your sweets selection and I can tell you now the Peanut Butter Mousse Tartlet is pretty special.
The package includes your return trip on the ferry to Sorrento and back from Queenscliff. Tea, coffee and a drink of your choice. Savoury and sweet treats. It is $40 per person return.
If you want to get off the ferry and go exploring in Sorrento you will need to purchase a return ticket. However, you might not get enough time to enjoy your high tea if you do, you will need to eat very fast or skip dessert. It is a very leisurely afternoon excursion and a great thing to do for a birthday, a catch up with your girlfriends or that someone special.
