Go crowd-free, get closer to the water and so closer to the action... Connect with nature during peaceful encounters, when possible away from other boats. 2 and 3 hour shared and private charters.

We were a group of 11 wanting a few hours out at sea, what Neil arranged was more than our expectations. Dolphins, whales, turtles a swim and in complete luxury.
The skipper was very knowledgeable not following the other boats and finding what can only be described as spectacular. A pod of at least 50 pilot whales, which we just drifted with for around 25 minutes . They provided food and drink.
If you are a large group this sort of trip will probably be cheaper going on a catamaran.
If your looking for a great day out call Neil.

Thank Matty D

Contact Neil and he will sort everything for you. It was our captains mission to ensure we saw pilot whales and turtles he went away from the other chartered boats to give us the best opportunity to see the whales. Book it now. Thanks Neil.

Hi Tony V. Thanks for the review. Glad to hear you had such a good time on the boat I recommended. I will let you know when Poker Chip is up and running again so you can perhaps give us a shot next time you're over... I think we finally have an investor, so maybe it won't be too long. All the best, Neil.

Thanks Neil for making our first trip and boating experience so special.. especially considering our original booking had to be rearranged do to the unusually severe weather and your usual boat was under repair. We loved the yacht, the service, our captain Christopher and his son Darka who looked after us so well and were so knowledgeable. Am so glad we booked with you! Keep up the great, friendly service.

Hi Syd. Glad you both had such a good time. We are hoping to be back in business ourselves in about 4 weeks with a new engine and a completely refurbished boat. Looking forward to that and to hopefully seeing you out with us in the not too distant future... Many thanks for the review.

Like other reviewers, I was unable to book Poker Chip Charter as the vessel was under repair however, Neil Goodchild took on the organisation of an alternative boat and I have to say my partner and I were treated royally and had an exceptional 3 hour sortie out with the whales and dolphins. The captain certainly knew how to engage with sea life and we were very grateful for the experience and indeed Neil`s input in organising everything on our behalf. Thanks all!

Thank Willie S

Hi Willie. Thanks for writing a review for us and especially for organising your friends to get in touch with me when they were here. We should be back up and running ourselves soon. Best regards.

We were looking for a 1/2 day boat tour (incl snorkeling) without big crowds, loud music and party party - we prefer to watch marine life with a minimum of disturbance. This is what we found via TripAdvisor in Poker Chip Charter/ captain Neil: he showed us (only 4 - 6 passengers) pilot whales, bottlenose dolphins and turtles, shared a lot of interesting information about the canaries, marine life, his boat, while we were enjoying snacks&drinks, sun, wind and waves on deck or snorkeling in a lovely little bay. This excursion with our very friendly captain Neil was great, which is why we booked this tour once more few days later... and it was again wonderful! Thank you captain! :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fG1N-P96g7A

Thanks for letting us know you got what you were looking for from your trip last year - and especially for booking to come out a second time during your stay. We have not been working for the last few months but now have eventually found business funding and are looking forward to starting up again - look us up when you're back over! Many thanks again.
