Only €100 per person including lunch on board. Half day cruises only €50 per person sharing including tea/coffee and snacks.

You can book the boat exclusively for Hen parties, Stag parties, Staff outings or any special occasion. We also cater for weekends or longer on board. Exclusive use of the boat costs €400 per half day or €750 per day.

All the above prices include skipper and hostess, fuel, and refreshments. If you have sailed before we let you sail the boat, we just do the navigating.
