Bought a LivingSocial voucher for this company for 5 people. Tried to book a trip via phone, email and text several times, left voicemails and didn't hear back! Phoned LivingSocial to get a refund, and after a firm conversation was refunded my money back.

Do not purchase anything to do with this company! 3 cancellations due to not enough ppl confirmed which is a lie as terms state max 15 ppl on boat. Waste of time and effort. Useless company run by ppl who don't give a stuff.
