Saw dolphins and lots of seals. Definitely will be back later this summer.”

“Top service”

“We had an absolutely brilliant trip with Pete and Maisy (his amazing dog) last week. 

Pete was so knowledgeable about the area, was wonderful with our children and nothing seemed too much. 

He’d even put our shoes to warm and the heater on for when we got out of the sea after some swimming. If that’s not top service then I don’t know what is.”

— Charlie, Liberty Boat Charter guest

“Me and my partner went on the Prosecco cruise yesterday and the wildlife cruise today.

Both trips were absolutely fabulous! Pete was so attentive and friendly nothing was too much trouble for him. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the surrounding area and showed us some amazing spots and recommended us places to go see. 

Great value for money and a wonderful host, I would highly recommend.”
