  • "First time"

    This was our first time travelling by ferry so we were a little anxious on what to expect. Once you’re out of the harbour you don’t realise the time, it’s literally plain sailing.  We would definitely use again, even though the fish smelt so nice my hubby wasn’t a fan, other than that great. All staff were polite and friendly.
