We arranged to go on this trip on a wet soggy day. The people running this cruise were superbly helpful, informative and made this a trip with things to learn even on a wet day. The video onboard made us realise the change that has happened in the area and how hard life must have been in the copper hay day for those working in the industry. It was quite an eye opener for our daughter to know that children of her age were working in the copperworks. The boat was beautifully clean, making it even more comforting in the current Covid scenario. We would recommend this to anyone staying on the Gower. Thank you so much for all your hard work!

We had a great trip on this boat. Our guide was very informative and a good raconteur. We found out about the copper trade and Swanseas innovators.

This was a surprise trip for our community group and we enjoyed every moment of it. The staff and volunteers were friendly and helpful. The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining and willing to answer questions and have a chat. There boat is accessible and comfortable and you can buy drinks and enjoy the views of old and new Swansea.
