Excellent, full day and I would highly recommend Bluetooth

"We took the skippered charter for a whole day and it was worth every penny!

We started from Gunwharf Quays and Nic accommodated everything we wanted to do.

We had a 5 month old baby so needed to swap passengers while one stayed on shore to look after baby.

It was an excellent, full day and I would highly recommend Bluetooth for a wonderful day out."

Comfortable and extremely seaworthy RIB
