Seacoast Well-being Fund

Over the years we’ve donated everything from cash, free tickets, equipment and loan of our boats and plant to various charities and good causes, in 2019 we took it one step further and all the profit from our sales of merchandise onboard the boats is placed in the ‘Seacoast Well-being Fund’. On occasion we are asked to take families out to scatter ashes of their loved ones. We have never taken payment for this service, asking families instead to make a charitable donation, however from 2019 we will be charging the normal rate for this and adding it to the fund. Starting in 2019 we decided to structure our charitable donations, taking the money raised throughout the season and donating to various good causes and those who may have in the past asked for a raffle prize donation instead. If you are a fund raiser for a good cause then please write to us at the end of our season once the ‘Seacoast Well-being Fund’ has been totalled (October/November) and we will hopefully be able to help.

Possibly the most helpful company I have ever dealt with.

We made a booking with over 40 people of mixed ages and one disabled. They telephoned to notify us of poor weather and even suggested alternative venues/ activities. Our party wished to continue as the weather was improving. When we arrived they did all they could to help and accommodate everyone.

The views and journey was stunning with a very informative commentary. If only every company was so refreshingly helpful and accommodating.
