    Very easy online booking process with clear directions on location of boat; can board from 7.15pm for a 7.30pm sail away slot, minimal queuing, easy checking in process which was very prompt. Seating available on the lower deck for passengers who may difficulty with stairs, majority of seating upstairs, large roomy dining areas with appropriate partitioning in place in accordance with Covid19 regulations. We went in July 2021 and a light jacket/cardigan was required. Friendly staff, great food, attention to detail, prompt service - our party of 3 loved it.
