  • "Fun times couldn't change the weather "

    Sauled on a Friday about 40 minutes prior to landing we were told problem with a stabiliser and high winds that couldn't land for abiut 3 hours. Was disappointed but accepted it. Food was provided for passengers during this time. Was due to return Saturday night all sailings cancelled due to bad weather. Rang stwn Saturday morning and the lady in the phone was very helpful and accommodating. Rescheduled sailing to Sunday. Was advised Sunday via text sailing my be delayed. Arrived at the port and the lady dealing with check in was fantastic. Received money voucher for food. Ferry sailed an hour after scheduled but was aware of it.
