“Great way to see Arundel and surrounds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

George offers a good value trip on the Arun River with an interesting and well researched commentary delivered with humour and warmth. We really enjoyed the hour long trip on a lovely sunny afternoon. The style is relaxed but with the professional approach to safety that puts passengers at ease. Will certainly arrange another trip in the future

“Thoroughly enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We had a great trip upriver with George at the helm yesterday, we were able to book at the quay when we arrived at midday with his helpful young assistant for an hours trip upriver at 3pm as far as the Black Rabbit.

View from the river are unbeatable, we know the Arun valley well but have never seen it from the river itself before.

Even the safety talk before we set off was entertaining! George is very knowledgeable about local history and the wildlife (such as go in September to see kingfishers) and has a great sense of humour and plenty of anecdotes about life on, off and around the river. The fact that the boat only has 12 seats makes for a much more personal experience.

“Wonderful sights and stories”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

We had a wonderful trip down river late one afternoon. There was plenty of wildlife to see and George's (the captain) stories and insights along the way were fascinating. Came back with some great photos too, including the best view of the castle over the town. Superb comfortable modern ex-police boat, a real treat to see it handled so expertly. It was almost like a Venice water taxi!
This was the perfect relaxing way to end our busy day in Arundel.

“A wonderful trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

A really fantastic hour, the town looks wonderful from the river, you see stunning views of the castle and cathedral that you cannot see from anywhere on land, make sure you have your camera! George the skipper really knows the area, his stories are very informative and funny. When we got out of town there were more interesting stories about the history of the area and the wildlife on the river. Great value and would recommend it for any age
