We spent the morning on Castaway Charters for my friends hen do. David made the day so relaxing and calm. He had been so helpful leading up to the day, answering my many calls with a million questions!

There were 10 hens and we all had an amazing time!! We brought lunch, plenty of booze, decorations and games on board and David was fab about it. He ever met us to help carry our many bags, he was music man and photographer at points!!

I would absolutely recommend David and Castaway Charters to anyone. On that note, David thank you for making Julia's hen a special one. It's much appreciated!

We booked Dave and Castaway for the final stage of a farewell to my partner Jan's father, Norman on at 6pm on Friday 5th August 2016.

Jan, Rosie and myself were so pleased that we could give Jan's Dad a send-off that he could look down on with contentment and pride.

We couldn't have wished for a better spot to spread his ashes than the one Dave chose for us.

The boat was great and we were greatly impressed with Dave's handling of the situation displaying just the right mixture of friendliness, integrity and discretion.

I certainly wouldn't hesitate to recommend Castaway Charters for all things marine-trip related around Poole.

We booked Castaway Charters for a corporate early evening event. We asked for a custom pickup location which the owner sorted out with no issues. The whole trip was exactly how we would have wanted it, the staff were friendly and attentive but in no way overbearing. We were left to enjoy the boat and the food and drinks (we brought ourselves). We will certainly be booking a longer trip in the future.

We booked Castaway charters for my hen do for a two hour trip around Poole Quay and Brownsea Island. Dave the skipper was incredibly welcoming and friendly we all had the best time and would highly recommend to any willing sea goers.
We anchored just off of a lovely little island and had drinks and snacks whilst taking some pictures.
The skipper gave us some interesting facts about the surrounding islands along the way and we all had an amazing time and a day to remember.

We had a brilliant time on David's boat, he was relaxed and friendly and we cruised around the solent in the sunshine! Would definitely recommend this as an activity for a hen party - our bride to be loved it!
