Fabulous day out on the boat with Chris. Started the morning with tea and homemade carrot cake(delicious).

Thanks Chris (and Jack) for an amazing time out on the water. We thoroughly enjoyed our morning charter with you guys. Would totally recommend your company to friends and family. We look forward to visiting the island again sometime soon.

Brilliant day on the water with a very knowledgeable and helpful skipper. Done quite a few charters over the years and Chris would have to been one of the best. Can thoroughly recommend for a great day out
