  1. Just a lovely thing to do

    This morning we had the occasion to assist the Pilot of the Daffodil and he kindly gave us a short trip on the boat. I had been before and had forgotten how enjoyable it was. He is so entertaining and informative and it is well worth a return visit.

  2. Loved the trip (and the skipper)

    Super! And the skipper is a very funny and extremely pleasant man.

  4. We had fun 🙂

    This boat trip was fun and very informative. We had a good time. Highly recommend it!

  5. Lovely boat ride

    Had a wonderful boat ride on the daffodil boat. The skipper was really good, very informative and jolly.
    Told us what to see and easy ways to get there, also told us about getting a boat back to the city centre.

  6. Wonderful way to see Cardiff Bay

    A lovely trip around Cardiff Bay with informed commentary pointing out the key landmarks. The skipper was so friendly and helpful, sketching us out a faultless map to help us walk over to Penarth without getting lost. Very interesting trip and a delightful host!

  7. Lovely tour

    Turned up and paid via card for a 20 minute tour. Worth every penny, we really enjoyed it. Our tour guide was wonderful, even gave us blankets as it was a bit nippy. Knowledgeable guide, would definitely recommend.
