We had a great day with escape yachting. As others have said, Matthew was really helpful and efficient in organising the trip and the day itself was excellent. We'd very happily do it again and recommend it without hesitation. Many thanks to Nigel and Tim.

I bought this trip for my husband's birthday and it surpassed all expectations. We were greeted by David and then our Skipper, Marcus, and crew member, Tim, saw us on board. After Marcus' safety instructions we were able to move around the boat freely and all of us took a turn at the helm. Our group consisted of 4 couples... More
