"I too have lived here all my life but this is the first time I have sailed around the Island. Wow what a thoroughly enjoyable and very interesting trip. One I would highly recommend. Very very interesting commentary was given on our 4 hour trip and to top it all, we saw at least 40 Seals basking in the sunshine on one of the mud banks past Elmley I believe, wow amazing and a must do" - TripAdvisor
