“Les Minquiers - 20 Oct 2012”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Absolutely amazing trip, it may have been overcast but there was no wind, the sea was like a mirror and watching the rocky outcrops and the sandbank appear was like magic. What an amazing afternoon and Richard and Gareth are so full of enthusiasm and love of what they do it is contagious. Doing a trip to Sark with them next year and really can't wait. Thank you guys :)

“Magical - 20 October”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Richard (skipper) and Gareth (marine biologist) took my wife and I and our two children (6 and 8) out to The Minquiers today. It was an amazing experience, from the thrill of the high-speed boat ride to the wild of these wonderful islands. The highlight was the time we spent on the sandbank that appeared as the tide went down. Rich and Gareth were terrific hosts, great with children and very knowledgeable about maritime and wildlife matters. The whole experience was first rate and very good value. We would do it again in a heartbeat. Would like to try Sark and / or Les Ecrehous next time. (The other 6 guests on the boat were on an outing from the Jersey branch of MENSA. A very lovely group, especially Janet and Sammy. If you're reading this, thanks for making our trip even more special and for your hospitality with the wine!). Thanks Rich and Gareth. You guys ROCK! Roz and Peter Young

“Great Trip”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Went on an early evening trip around to Gorey whilst over in Jersey with some freinds, our package included a meal at Sumas restaurant which is in Gorey. Once we were all given full waterproofs we set of out into the channel for high speed ride around the coast which was great fun before stopping of the coast for a while to take in some wine and beer while admiring the coastline. Then we were dropped of at the pier for a short walk around to the restaurant. This is a great trip for all ages and the the two guys running the boat are very curtious and professional. give it a go you will not be disappointed.

“Super day out”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

Richard and Gareth were great guides. Super boat ride (hold on tight!). Les Ecrehous were amazing especially as the tide receded revealing loads of beautiful sandbars and lagoons. We were stalked by seals on the way home! Thanks guys.

“Trip to Les Ecrehous 12/9/12”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Fantastic 3 hour trip. Trip was taken with 79 year old parent. Well worth a 4 month delay due to bad weather on earlier booking. No dolphins and only one seal still happy swimming in choppy water. The day was beautiful but windy and threatening rain. Island tranquil and picturesque. Big swell on the water on the return made the ride home a bit of a thrill. Top marks for the waterproofs!
Richard and Gareth - charming, fun and a pair of gentlemen.
Thanks for the trip and will definitely return'
