Avoid avoid avoid. They stole our money.

Despite pre booking and paying in advance, We arrived in time and yet the boat was full. They had obviously sold our spaces to people who just turned up on the day before us. I asked for a refund but was denied. The exact same thing happened to another family who arrived shortly after us. Absolutely shocking customer service. The person shouting at us from the boat that we should have arrived 15 mins earlier (despite the ticket not showing this) was rude, as were the three guys working for him who were milling around on the pier. I tried emailing for a refund and have received no reply. £43.40 wasted and three very disappointed upset children. If we were late I would have understood, but we weren’t. The fact is the boat was full, so there is no reason why they couldn’t have refunded us our money. Shocking customer service and they have basically stolen our money. Avoid avoid avoid this unprofessional organisation.

At 3.20 we were told our booking was cancelled as they booked a party on the boat instead. I have been told by Berry boats that's they don't get the bookings you book so not sure why people are ar to book through yourselves
Calm and relaxing

Pre booked a boat trip over 3 weeks as a surprise for my daughter. Arrived for our trip to be told that it was cancelled as they had booked a stag party in which had to take priority! Nobody contacted us in advance to inform us it wasn’t going ahead! Thanks for spoiling my 3 year old’s day!
