Miserable owners for both the fishmongers and boat hire. Really unhelpful and not worth wasting your money on as you can get better service and experience elsewhere. Avoid at all costs!

We hire a cabin boat for a few hours and were delighted with it. Life jackets and clear instructions were provided and we all had a go at the steering. It was thoroughly enjoyable and, though we were a bit apprehensive, we managed fine. The...More

The trip lasted an hour around the bay. The skipper was friendly . He made useful observations along the way. There was probably more history to imparted. Tip: take a fleece or jumper. It can be windy.

There wasn't anything wrong with the price or the boat. It was a good experience and we got what we expected. But a lot of the experience is about the customer service - and I think that a smile and some small talk goes a...More
