“Fantastic fun aboard Bumblebee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

Travelling to and from Alderney on Bumblebee was enormous fun. Dan and Josh have a great approach to everything, we felt very safe, and it was so much cheaper than flying. Spectacular scenery too. We will definitely use the, again. Highly recommended.

“Wonderful cruise excursion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

We went on this trip with my 70+-year old parents, on a beautiful July afternoon, and all four of us thought it was absolutely fantastic. Skipper Dan and first-mate Josh were great hosts/guides, and with only about 10 people onboard the well-turned out boat and wonderful weather, the views of the South and East of the island were brilliant and breath-taking. Before we boarded we thought it was expensive (at £27.50pp for a 75 minute cruise), but afterwards we had completely changed out minds and now thought it great value. We would definitely go on a different tour with this company next time we visit Guernsey and we highly recommend it.

“Contrasting cruises”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

During our recent holiday on Guernsey my wife, daughter and I made a day trip to Alderney aboard Bumblebee, the only scheduled passenger service to the island and much cheaper than flying. In windy conditions both crossings were lively but great fun. We enjoyed this trip so much that we booked a dinner cruise for the following day. On a calm, sunlit evening we sailed the short distance to Fermain Bay where we anchored for conversation, a little local history and a glass or two of sparkling wine before returning to St Peter Port and an excellent value, three-course dinner in the cheerfully frenetic La Perla restaurant. A memorable and relaxing end to our holiday. Dan and Josh, the crew for both outings were exceptionally friendly, informative and professional. Very highly recommended.

A great trip. The crew were friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. We did the trip with a newborn baby. Had a great trip round the coast of Guernsey.

“AVOID”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Booked online on a friends recommendation. They emailed me a reminder but when we turned up we found the trip cancelled. Had not had the courtesy to phone or email us. Quite unsympathetic of our wasted time. Best avoided
