I want to thank you so much for the great job you did in organizing my friend's 50th birthday party aboard the Real escape. It was a perfect night for the boat cruise and the crew were wonderful. Our friends were raving about the great food and service. I also want to especially thank Kelly, our hostess who was very friendly and helpful making sure we had everything we needed all night. I would definitely recommend a boat cruise to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion or who just want to plan a nice outing. Thanks again.

Words of Praise

Captain Graham,
On behalf of Inmarsat, the mobile Satellite company may I thank you and you crew for and exceptional two day charter over the Volvo Ocean Race weekend.

Your care for safety and for highest quality seamanship were of particular value when hundreds of boats small and large were surrounding us.

Your team made us welcome and their service was attentive, discrete and highly professional.

May we particularly praise your cook, who produced exceptional food remarked upon by our Board level guests and VIPs.

Real Escape‎ should be renamed - Really Exceptional...

Best wishes

I am writing to thank you for such a wonderful time. I was pleased that you and your wife had thought of everything. The sandwich, cheese/cracker platters made a big hit with everyone. Probably my favorite thing was you providing us with "inside info" about the various homes and history along the river.
