We got back last week and sadly, back into the thick of things at work (for some of us!! ).
I have to say that our experience on The Osprey was fantastic. We arrived later than expected on Monday and so we only left the harbour around 5.30pm and so we slept the night off Antelope Island, but it was nevertheless a great 3 nights on board.
The boat very much exceeded our expectations, the crew were brilliant - friendly, efficient and they knew their stuff and were accommodating of our needs and the facilities for David in the wheelchair were great - so all in all we had an extremely good experience.
I would most certainly recommend this Boat and crew to friends.
Thanks for arranging this for us.
I completely agree with my brother's sentiments below. Our stay on the Osprey was a fantastic experience and the crew were an absolute credit to the owners!
Thanks to you and the owners and staff of the Osprey. I'll also be recommending them to any friends considering a similar experience!
We had a wonderful time on the Osprey and everything was up to a very high standard!
The food was spectacular and we couldn't ask for more!
Thank you for your assistance in everything!
We would definitely recommend it to our friends!
Thought I would just drop you a line to thank you for the most wonderful trip on the Osprey. We had a fabulous time and everybody was really impressed with the boat and the crew. When we arrived back, the owner came aboard for a quick chat but I did not get to speak to him so please do pass on our sincere thanks to him. The boat is well maintained – as you said it was and there was so much space. The crew were very helpful indeed especially Solomon who was always ready to assist with anything. The Captain, Collins, was very professional and excellent at his job. We were all very happy indeed and have told several people already what a fine trip it was. Seriously good value for money and we will certainly make sure we book well ahead for our next trip.
Thanks also go to you for your prompt replies to emails and good sound advice on everything.
