Family day cruise

The marina give a great introduction to the boat, and lent us life jackets. We appreciated the fact that the engineer stayed with us for the first couple of minutes and didn’t make us feel anxious. Fantastic day, super friendly staff.

Excellent service, clean, tidy boat..

Everyone, from nine months of age to sixty, had a fabulous day. We took a picnic lunch and bought beer at a canalside pub. An excellent family day out.

The company’s personnel were excellent, being helpful and enthusiastic, and the whole experience was exactly what we were anticipating. The whole experience can be highly recommended.
