Looking back at 2013
Wednesday, October 16, 2013
We've come to the end of a very
successful season. With the excellent weather our cruises have been
packed out, the Alderney ferry has been busier than ever and our

During the winter, we'll still be available for charter, and we'll be running when fog prevents flying. If you need to take a group of up to 12 somewhere or just fancy getting out on the sea, then we'll happily arrange a trip for you.
One notable feature this year has been our cruises for various disability groups. Bumblebee is wheelchair-accessible and we've done trips for the Guernsey Cheshire Home, The Croft, the Adult Disability Centre and the Guernsey Specials Gym amongst others. It's really rewarding to see the effect a Bumblebee trip has and we look forward to doing lots more next year.
Our busiest time was Alderney Week, which gets more popular each year. This year we chartered a larger boat on the two weekends because of the demand. We took up more than 200 people during the Week.
We've done a lot for charity this year too, having raised funds for St John Ambulance on Liberation Day, Alderney Cancer Relief during Alderney Week and the GSPCA at the North Show. We've dished out a few raffle prizes for charities, too.
We look forward to your continued support next season.
