Following our recent four day break, we would like to thank all the staff whom made our arrival extremely welcoming. The boat was brand new and exceeded our expectations whilst being shown all items on board. We were given a test run to make sure that we understand the full workings of the boat and how to operate the craft. Had a very relaxing time, and look forward to coming back.

All the best the Fisk Party.
