Awesome rib ride! Fantastic staff! - Absolutely loved this experience! 100% recommended 👌 Staff are awesome, friendly and helpful. The day we went it was unfortunately raining, but we still had a fantastic time. Laughed the whole ride. Includes some commentary, banter and music throughout. They even got the whole boat singing Happy Birthday to me!! 11/10 for sure. Thanks Rob and Barry.... you made our day!

Amazing experience, well organised - I booked this 20-min tour as a birthday surprise for my husband. I would like to thank the team for coming up with this idea and for arranging it. I booked it a day before (quite late), and the team member contacted me in several minutes or so to warn that there were not enough people to join and they might have to cancel and refund. That allowed me to come up with a back up plan. However, the next day I checked up with the organiser, and the team confirmed that the tour is taking place after all. On the day of the event it took a couple of minutes to find the gate (D), but the arrows and banners helped a lot. The tour started as scheduled, no delays. It took 20 mins, as expected. The crew did their best to get us all very excited: the turns and jumps, the speed, the music and cheering conversations. My husband and I enjoyed this experience very much. Thank you!

Scattering of Ashes - This trip was actually a Scattering of Ashes for my husband who died recently. Although very emotional everything went off beautifully. The crew were great and I cannot thank everyone enough. It was also wonderful that Charlotte who arranged the trip rang me after the event to check that I was completely happy with how everything went. Couldn't have asked for more.

Biggest scammers - We were 5 min late because of train station closure. They were not willing to board us because we were 5 min late . No refund or re book issued. Refused to talk to us you have to ring office. But they were nice to the customers after us . Because we are Asian and they were white. The kids were so heart broken. The skipper could have been a bit more sympathetic and was not even willing to talk to us. The lady on the phone was even worse 5 mins is hardly a time to refuse us entry. At a time when people are struggling to make ends meet. We were trying to entertain our kids and this has left us with a sour experience. Very disappointing

Scammed - BEWARE. I booked this via Groupon and paid up front for my family. When we arrived we were not allowed to join the boat ride. Very disappointed family including my mum and children. There was no refund. I was told to contact the third party seller, who refuse the refund saying that I need to contact another third party to get a refund, but have not responded to say how I could do that. Be aware this trip is open to scams. I am still owed well over £100.
