20 Minute Trips - 1st January - 31st December

I offer my trips 7 DAYS A WEEK THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE YEAR, operating times as follows:

January 9am-4pm ~ February & March 9am-4.30pm ~ April - October 9am-5pm (6pm at weekends during August) ~ November 9am-4.30pm ~ December 9am-4pm.

Please note: the last trip of the day will be 30 minutes before the above stipulated finishing times. It is adviseable not to leave your trip until the end of the day if possible as this will avoid your disappointment if the boat is full and cannot fit you on the last trip. 

Please check the below events listing titled 'Times to Avoid' with the relevant month you are planning to visit to ensure I do not have any longer trips booked in at the time you plan to visit.

It is advisable that during the months of November-March if you wish to take a 20 minute trip or require a lift out to your boat that you book this service in advance to ensure you are not disappointed on the day. With it being the quieter season I often spent time working ashore so please do book your trip in advance if you plan on visiting between November to March. 

If you are looking for one of my longer trips or would like more information on these trips please click here. All longer trips must be booked and paid for in advance to secure your booking.
