Brilliant Experience Ride around the harbour followed by a speedy ride out to Isle of Wight. Good captain, wanted to make it as enjoyable for us as he could. Seats about 12 so not overloaded, with 2 seats at front at boat if you dare. Weather was excellent which made the day even better, but very good value for money. Good experience, will probably repeat at some point. 26 June 2014
This is awesome ! I did this last October - we are just about to book another trip for April so it prompted me to post this now - Sorry for the delay ! AWSOME says it all ..... Most fun I've had in years and my girlfriend loved it too (even though she was nervous beforehand ) I'd do this once every month if we were nearer ! (Come from Tonbridge ) and wish we'd done it sooner. The booking staff were really helpful and told us what to do / wear etc, couldn't be more helpful. In all, a really good operation. Five star - Do It ! You won't possibly regret it ! 22 January 2014
Wish I'd done this sooner !!! Put this off for sometime until my son pestered me into it - Brilliant !!!!! All three of us loved it and even the wife had an ear to ear grin :-) I can only say that you have to get on and try it - Its the best way of spending an hour that I've ever found and worth double the price. We saw things on the Solent that we never knew exsisted and the staff couldn't be more helpful. The skipper was exceedingly competent, yet made us feel completely safe (even my wife ! ) Dont hesitate - go for it ! We will be back for more this coming year without a doubt 12 March 2013
Good gift but... It was a really great experience, the weather was perfect and we went zooming off over to the Isle of Wight. We got a quick tour of Portsmouth Harbour and Spitbank and Sandbank Fort, and then a blast on the waves. However, I received this gift last September, and it was advertised that the experience ran from April to November. So the person who was to do it with me is around very little, and we called up to book in October, but were told it was no longer running? We then tried early this year to book it for Easter, but again were told it was not running. Then, I tried to book for this September. It is advertised that it is every day of the week, yet we were told it was only run at weekends. We were a bit put out with all the problems we experienced in booking, as the guy is not the most helpful on the phone, but the experience, when you can finally get round to it and fit in with his falsely advertised schedule, is great. 27 September 2013
