Amazing boat trip with Mike and his lovely daughter Tya. We had a guided tour and a cocktail or two and enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended

We booked a trip for 12 and had absolute blast despite freezing weather and extreme winds! I can only imagine how much fun we’d have one a hot summer day. Definitely recommend!
