We had a wonderful day on the Broadwater exploring the islands, swimming and picnicking. Mark was incredibly helpful with the booking process. James, our driver/captain, was very accommodating and friendly. Our group included people of all ages and we all had a fantastic time.

Terrible experience, stay away! Staff decided not to let us hire a boat, despite within opening hours and capacity, but simply because he had personal plans, and argued we “probably” would be back late. disappointed!

Had a terrible experience with this company, the owner is rude and aggressive, he will con you out of your deposit. Hopefully you’re reading these reviews before you book anything unlike me, I learnt a lesson that day.
