Very enjoyable. Captain tour information very informative. It was nice to see the Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier upclose after the recent TV programme. As it was a beautiful sunny day upper deck was crowded but still easy to see everything.

This is one of the most informative boat trips I have ever taken. The commentary was both informative & entertaining for all knowledge levels. Highlight was seeing the soon to be commssioned Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier

Took a harbour trip aboard Jenny M in November so it wasn't very busy but what value! Very informative dialogue and the trip was 45 mins long. Took us around the dockyard and terminals so we learnt a lot of interesting facts. Staff attentive.
