Our trip was perfectly balanced between sight seeing and fishing. Gary was easily able to accommodate our needs and in particular my son Harry. the drive back to shore was the highlight taking the tiller and doing a donut !!!

6 of us went out with the incredibly knowledgable and lovely Gary in his boat in this wonderful place. We went out to sea and then back up the estuary. If we were down this way again we would definitely go out with him again.
