We booked this trip in UK over 5 months ago and we were not disappointed from start to end.
Part of the trip was visiting two wineries with tasting and over a 3 hour cruise with more wine and mussels (freshly caught and cooked) for those that wanted.
Hamish - driver, guide and boat skipper - was excellent with a wealth of information about the area and the musse!s.
His partner Gary was both funny and a mind of local knowledge.
Thanks to both for a very enjoyable day.

Thank david p

We booked this trip last minute knowing that it was going to be a bit grey and drizzling but hoping for the best.... what a gorgeous way to spend an afternoon!! John and Andrew were wonderful, they sailed us around the beautiful coast line and told us and showed us everything there is to know about mussel farming before cooking up the most mouthwatering feast of green shell mussels and beautiful wine!! Utterly gorgeous and the best mussels we have ever eaten!!! Thank you both!!!! :)
