  • Thank you Russell,

    Your Ribs was one of the highlights of the weekend for both me and my 11 year old daughter. What a way to arrive to a festival. I may have spoiled her for life. The trip both over and back was breath-taking, fun, and much faster than queuing to get on and off a ferry. Would highly recommend and definitely use again if we return to the festival in 2013. In addition your staff were friendly, helpful, and great fun. The party starts the moment you board. Well done and thanks once again!

  • Hi Russell,

    After the mudfest that was IOW 2012 there is no way I'd travel to the festival any other way! We arrived from Glasgow a good 2 hours early and got fitted on an earlier boat by the lovely lady that met us in the cafe. What an experience, added so much to the whole weekend. Most defiantly see you next year.
