We joined Chris and his crew for a trip to the Needles and a stop for lunch at The Hut for my Dad’s 70th birthday. What a treat! The Salamander is absolutely beautiful and immaculately clean. We were welcomed on board with a safety brief, (Chis ensures the trip is COVID-19 secure) followed by bacon rolls and hot drinks. As a family of 6, (2x grandparents, 3 adults and an 8 year old), the crew were welcoming, accommodating of our excitement and keenness to learn about sailing (as complete novices). Our youngest member was guided through the need for safety with a positive tone and the understanding of the adventurous needs of a young boy, which made his trip as enjoyable as everyone else’s. The champagne before lunch felt truly special, the transfer to the Hut was fun and the food there was incredible. Fantastic sailing back from the island was topped off with more champers and a specially made birthday cake which met all of our dietary requirements. Honestly, I can’t think of a better treat to celebrate my Dad’s special birthday and the Salamander team exceeded all of our expectations both in the planning beforehand and in the day. THANK YOU!

Thank you Lisa for your "Exquisite 5-star Review"! The Salamander crew always enjoy the day when three generations get together for a special family treat and believe special celebrations deserve at least a bottle of champagne! We are so pleased you found the food at The Hut incredible. Stopping at The Hut for lunch is a great combination with a Salamander boat trip sailing to The Needles on the Isle of Wight. The Hut never fails to impress our guests and we are pleased to have been recognized as Official Hut Partners for a few years now as this sometimes allows us to secure a reservation even when it appears to others to be fully booked! Safety is of course important to all of us. During these unusual times we think it important to try our hardest to provide a Covid-19 Secure environment for everyone with not only our regular cleaning and wipe downs beforehand and throughout the day but by using our special dry fogging machine to treat all areas with a fine antibacterial spray before and after every charter. Salamander is fortunate in having so much open deck space, with its teak handrail all round for added safety, for guests to enjoy as much Covid-free fresh air as they could wish for walking around taking in the sights of the Isle of Wight with a celebratory glass in their hand. We firmly believe all dietary requirements should be addressed with a minimum of fuss. It was a pleasure to be able to present the surprise birthday cake at the end of the day. Do keep in touch and pop in any time when next passing for a coffee and a catch up chat. Best wishes from Chris, Sue and the Salamander crew.

We spent a brilliant day aboard the Salamander, celebrating my husband's birthday. The crew were so friendly, attentive and helpful. We had all types of weather on the day, so we spent some time out on the deck and also inside. The interior of the boat is spacious and comfortable, unlike other boats of this type. Our kids had a lovely time as well, and the crew did everything to involve them too, and make them feel like they were part of the adventure. This was not easy, given that one of them is a teenager and the other is a toddler! We will definitely sail again next time we visit the Isle of Wight or the New Forest.

Thank you for your "Brilliant 5-star Review"! We enjoyed your company and are pleased to hear you found Salamander so spacious and comfortable. The large deck saloon is unique with it's wrap round windows, ideal for all weathers ... and all ages, teenagers and toddlers included as you found out, and for a 5-star multiple-courses gourmet picnic on anchor in the National Trust Newtown Creek. We look forward to welcoming you onboard again next time you are visiting the Isle of Wight or the New Forest when we can show you some more of it's natural beauty. #NewForestAndTheSea Do keep in touch and pop in any time when next passing for a coffee to plan your next adventure with us. Best wishes from Chris, Sue and the Salamander crew.

Thank you for your "Amazing 5-star review"! It was a great sight to witness your Birthday Party's arrival in style alongside Salamander in a limo! We all enjoyed looking after you and your guests. You all made it very easy for us. Hope you were able to safely look after the top tier of the birthday cake for your return home. We look forward to arranging another special day out for another special occasion next year. Again a special celebratory cake and some champagne will be on us! Please keep in touch and pop in any time if passing again for a coffee and a chat. Best wishes from Chris, Sue and the Salamander crew.

A fun day out. Chris and the crew take good care of you although we didn’t have the three course a la Carter menu at the Butlers Hard that the birthday girl thought she was having so disappointing for her. Otherwise, what is there not to like!

Thank you for your "What is There Not to Like!" review. We are pleased you had a fun day out celebrating the Birthday Girl's birthday. Like you we were disappointed to hear the lunch ashore we booked for you was not up to the usual high standard we should expect and hope we made up for it with the celebratory cake and bottles of champagne when you returned to Salamander! Please keep in touch and pop in any time if passing again for a coffee and a chat. Best wishes from Chris, Sue and the Salamander crew.

Thank you Jason for your great 5-star review. We are pleased you found the Salamander crew friendly, as we certainly enjoyed your company throughout the day as well! The Hut never fail to impress our guests and so we were pleased to hear your guests enjoyed their lunch ashore and the Rib ride there and back. We were also pleased to our alternative Staycation here in the UK taking in the sights of the Needles with champagne and beers before lunch could compare so well with your cancelled Greek charter! Please keep in touch and pop in any time if passing again for a coffee and a chat. Best wishes from Chris, Sue and the Salamander crew.
