We booked Castaway Charters for a corporate early evening event. We asked for a custom pickup location which the owner sorted out with no issues. The whole trip was exactly how we would have wanted it, the staff were friendly and attentive but in no way overbearing. We were left to enjoy the boat and the food and drinks (we... More

Dave the skipper was incredibly welcoming and friendly we all had the best time and would highly recommend to any willing sea goers. We anchored just off of a lovely little island and had drinks and snacks whilst taking some pictures.... More

We had a brilliant time on David's boat, he was relaxed and friendly and we cruised around the solent in the sunshine! Would definitely recommend this as an activity for a hen party - our bride to be loved it!

We had a fabulous trip to round off my Birthday celebrations. David was very helpful in giving us information about the different parts of the Jurassic coast. We are locals but we all learned some new things. The perfect place to be is up on the fly bridge where David left us to our celebrations. We took our own food... More
