“Lovely birthday treat”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

My wife treated me to a wonderful couple of hours on board the cafe cruise catamaran for my birthday .
The skipper Victor provided us with an interesting commentary of the local area ,and after we had anchored in a quiet part of Chichester harbour our lovely host Vanessa brought out a delicious picnic meal ,washed down with a lovely chilled glass of white wine .
Our fellow passengers and my wife and I were chatting with victor and vanessa only to be told to look out over the side where there were a couple of playful seals bobbing up and down quite close to us .
Another few miles we stopped again for afternoon tea and cake ,and watched as the oyster catchers swooped, and the cormorants stood silently on the channel markers .
All to soon it was time to head back to Emsworth marina after a thoroughly enjoyable trip .
Thanks to Cafe Cruises for a lovely few hours on the water .

“A lovely treat”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We had a brilliant afternoon cruising around the harbour to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Picnic was amazing and seal watching was fab. Many thanks to the skipper and his team who ensured the surprise for hubby stayed a surprise! Would definitely recommend such a lovely treat.

“Fantastic trip”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

I rarely have time to relax but this cruise purchased by our daughter and her partner for us was such an amazing relaxing experience. We had a lovely trip around the harbour and the meal and wine were very tasty. Vic and his daughter made us feel very welcome on board. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to book that special trip as a present, it is very memorable purely for the joy of being on the water and enjoying the peace and serenity. Its on my list of must do again.

“Emsworth Harbour Cruise”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

This was a treat for us purchased by our son & daughter-in-law as one of the 'Virgin Experience Days'. It was a great trip, hosted by Victor who was the Captain, crew & general dogsbody. After a safety briefing, we enjoyed a welcome 'cuppa' & very good sandwiches & cake. We cruised around the harbour, with Victor giving a commentary about Emsworth etc. it was high tide so unable to see any seals but there was lots of interesting bird life. The whole trip was well managed & would recommend this to anyone.
