We were lucky with some beautiful weather for October. The boat was clean & obviously COVID friendly. The commentary was informative and the views just glorious. I certainly recommend this trip

We had a lovely trip, the commentary en route was informative and crew very nice. Had a coffee and tea on offer. Got dropped at Swanage and had lunch in the harbour then the trip back. I would highly recommend.
