Good cruise,lovely young man who sailed us around, although the website said wheelchair friendly I think it needs to be more specific. ,access to the boat via ramp, but no ramp to get onto the boat, the lovely young chap had to lift my uncle in his wheelchair with the assistance of my aunt ,we tried to call and email to see about the wheelchair information but never got a reply,

Great trip, fantastic guide and boat captain. Went over & above to help my husband in a wheelchair when there was no option for him to enter the boat. This was the only downer for us as we expected wheelchair access onto the boat not just the jetty. Perhaps you should update this area as without the captains help we wouldn’t have had the chance to see the dolphins, wrecks etc.

Really interesting and informative. Very engaging skipper. Thanks.
