A perfect day! There is plenty of room for everyone on the boat and everyone has their "personal space". We are not crammed on top of each other as we can see on other boats. The captain and the crew are really nice! The only downside is that there is no English guide. The crew translates the explanations to us in broken English but make sure they are understood.

I recommend Dennis's boat to everyone. Impeccable service; sympathy and gentleness. The boat is very comfortable. For a day of true relaxation between nature and art.

The privacy of having a boat with its crew for a day, stopping in incredible places and alone. The exceptional food on board and the treatment of the crew.

Wondrful Dday out.

We were well looked after by the office staff before and after the ferry crossing and the boat was clean and tidy and uneventful.

Great boat great crew! And even better experiences!
