Super trip with a very nice boat and a great skipper to a very pure and beautiful Island where time stood still! We recommend everyone to do this trip with Chris and see some dolphines, seals and do some fishing in the mean time!

A thoroughly enjoyable day's, sailing many thanks to skipper Chris. An ideal tonic to relax after the working week made all the more interesting with the challenging winds and tide in Ballycastle Bay. As a first time experience of sailing I couldn't recommend it enough.
