What You Say

Please let us know what  you thought of your Bumblebee experience by e-mailing feedback@bumblebee.gg

You have provided a terrific service to and from Alderney and we will miss seeing the little "yellow peril" in the Swinge.   Really don't know why the States of Alderney are unwilling to entice you to remain on the route.

Sue, Alderney

Thanks to all your team for a great service over the years. Going to really miss not using you guys. This island is going to struggle on without you!

Charlie, Alderney

On 23rd June, my friend and I were left stranded by Aurigny on the harbour  in Guernsey and you and Laura were our saviour.

We wanted to thank you for persisting with phone calls and arranging for us to reach Alderney, and we were able to board the later flight to continue our holiday


Many many thanks Chris for the superb trip yesterday and yours, your wife's and Dan's care and attention.
Madge and I really enjoyed every minute of the sail and also your interesting explanation of the history of the Island.
A Wonderful trip and we are so very grateful, please do pass on our thanks to Dan and your wife.
We hope we can repeat the experience again in the future and perhaps with our family.

Kindest regards and very best wishes for a great summer season

Roy and Madge

Massive thanks to Bumblebee Boat Cruises for saving the day last Saturday when Condor cancelled our boat, fantastic trip over, crew excellent and I would recommend them 100%


On behalf of the young people and their carer I just wanted to thank Bumble Bee for a wonderful trip out on Sunday afternoon.
The smiles on the faces of the youngsters and the laughter when a freak wave crashed over the side and soaked the unlucky few was a pleasure to experience.
Please pass on our thanks to the helpful crew who also helped to make the cruise a success. 

Thank you very much indeed for your kind attention to all the booking arrangements-very professional.

The trip was excellent_I will be telling my family who travel here often. And your colleagues on board Bumblebee could not have been more helpful and friendly

Thanks to Dan and Laura for a fantastic trip on  @bumbleboat for the  #Liberation70 fireworks. A treat to see the fireworks from a new angle!


We held my son's 5th birthday party aboard Bumblebee last weekend and had a fabulous time dressed as pirates! The crew and passengers all got into character and the kids had great fun fighting off the enemy with water pistols and listening to pirate tales!


Great trip there and back, we enjoyed every minute. Who would want to fly in a plane when the bumblebee is available?

I just wanted to say a big thank you for your excellent service and hospitality on Sunday 13th July. We thought we would have to miss out on the trip due to the last departure time back to the Oceana being at 5.30pm, but you saved the day and we thoroughly enjoyed our time on the boat. Thank you for going out of your way to collect us and drop us off.



We went on a puffin patrol during half term and had a wonderful time.  Even though we only saw one puffin it was a highly enjoyable trip and the staff were really kind.  I hope to do it again. Thank you very much

We had a great time on the Dinner Cruise.  The weather could have been better but we can't have everything!

The highlight of Judith's evening was Dan letting her 'drive' the boat. You're only 40 once - could be the start of a new career for her!


Our 15-year-old autistic son went on a Puffin Patrol had the most wonderful afternoon, beamed the whole way, the crew were fantastic. Customer service second to none, can't thank the Bumblebee crew enough for making our son feel and have such a very special birthday.


Thanks to Captain Dan and his pirate crew for this morning! Tom said it's the best party he's ever had! For anyone considering the Bumblebee Pirate Party I can recommend it! I think my son will do even more than me just be prepared to get wet - wet but happy! 


Our son broke his arm here while on holiday and had to fly to Guernsey with his special-needs carer for treatment. Aurigny impose a 48 hour no-flying rule for newly fitted plaster-casts. Your availability to bring them back was a saviour which would otherwise have cost dearly in 2 nights accommodation in Guernsey and associated personal expenses.

Thank you so much for the care and attention of yourself and crew.

Invaluable and much respected in all seas.

Pam, Alderney

Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say how much I enjoyed being with you both last night on the Dinner Cruise. I had a great time! Really enjoyed it.
The boat ride was fab,the bubbly a bonus,the history,very interesting,nice company and a great meal


Just like to say what a pleasant experience our Alderney trip was. Captain & crew very friendly & informative. I would recommend to anyone that they make use of Bumblebee. Well done to you all - I wish you every success & I will definitely be travelling with you again.


We were so lucky to have seen the Puffins on Sunday afternoon - thanks to Dan and Robin for a great trip. Thanks too for your help getting my elderly mother-in-law on and off the ship and also for letting William steer the boat for a while! An unforgettable afternoon and we will definitely do some more excursions with the Bumblebee.

Jo, Guernsey

We had an exciting trip along the south-east coast of Guernsey last Friday, it was real fun. With interesting and humorous stories told by our guide, and when the captain put the throttle down to full speed, the spray was flying all around the boat. You should not miss a Bumblebee trip when you happen to visit Guernsey!

Frank, Germany 

The boat is new, clean and comfortable & the crew are good fun to share the journey with.

Bigbug M, Guernsey

Thank you. We could not have asked for a better trip - it was so nice to see the seals on such a lovely day.  The crew were great. Will be coming aboard again soon.

The Welch Family


Thank you for your 1st class service today and good to meet you guys.  Robin is a first class crew and good company.


We thoroughly enjoyed our journey from Guernsey to Alderney, despite the strong headwind which kept us bouncing over the surface. We had no luggage restrictions, and it was a much more meaningful experience than flying!

Robin and Eva

We wish to thank you all so much for a truly fantastic day. Your team were fantastic, such good fun, informative and great to be out with.  Myself, my husband and our party of 10 "pesky pirates" certainly had a day to remember and nothing could have run smoother (we even had better weather than you could wish for!).

The Wallaces, Guernsey

We are all missing our little Bumblebee coming in and out of the island during this bad weather . . . You have provided a great service this season and long may it continue, which I am sure it will going by all the good feedback I hear around the island.

Janine, Alderney


Thank you for such a pleasant trip from Guernsey to Alderney yesterday - my real knights in shining armour!  I will certainly be spreading the word of your service!



Great trip. Really enjoyed and would highly recommend. My husband has a disability and was greatly helped with respect.


We came on the south east cruise last evening. It was a great way to try out the boat.  We had a lovely trip and learned things that even some of the locals didn't know!  Will definitely do it again. 



I thoroughly recommend the Guernsey East and South Coast Cruise - exhilarating, informative and fun. A great little cruise!



Theo Rogers drew us a beautiful picture and sent his thanks for his trip. See his picture and message here.


Absolutely quality people so genuine, i enjoyed my experience seeing alderney by sea, pleasant skipper and mate, also my toe was broke, on the return they got me closer to condor,,,thats above and beyond service...thanks guys,,see you soon!!

Went on the Puffin Patrol yesterday evening. Excellent trip. I have never seen so many Puffins, it was excellent. Thanks Bumblebee crew for such a great trip.



We loved our trip on Saturday, thank you so much. See you again soon x



Thank you for such a fun journey home, and for 'Operation Handbag' [We retrieved the handbag she dropped from the pontoon!]



Thank you very much for your help and support over the last few weeks.  Your service has been exemplary and you've helped us out in a number of tight spots at short notice, so again thanks!

Roland Gauvain , Manager, Alderney Wildlife Trust


Great journey back this afternoon - better than a roller coaster!



Brilliant trip today guys, thanks Robin & Dan!
