Slightly spoilt by disinterested pilot who declined our offer to go and call the other potential customers waiting at the other...More

We had a lovely, relaxing afternoon cruise. The route was fascinating and full of variety. Singing Happy Birthday in the pitch black tunnel was memorable! The crew thoughtfully dimmed the lights. I would recommend this for a memorable occasion which everyone will enjoy.
