Great staff - friendly and fun. Had a bit of an incident as boat ran out of fuel, but some friendly folk towed us back in and the boss got very told off by his staff.

We pitched up just before low tide but the ferry man was very helpful at getting our two bikes and child carrier into the boat and over the river. Same for the trip back. Thanks again!
