Windfarm Trip Reviews

If you are in any doubt about Defiance being the best boat to see the Rampion windfarm with, please take a look at the windfam trip reviews we have.

We were the first boat to run a sightseeing trip to the Rampion Windfarm in June 2016 when the project was in its infancy. From then on we have been running them every month and now every week. Consequently, we have the history of the project from all the trips we have run and can impart all our knowledge during the trips.

Fantastic afternoon out

We took a trip with Paul on a sunny Saturday afternoon and had an absolutely brilliant time! Paul is very knowledgable, answered any and all questions we had and nothing felt rushed. Very relaxing with the cuppa and some biscuits also thrown in. Have been recommending going with Paul to everyone who would listen, so if you're thinking about it - just do it! 🙂

fantastic outing

what an amazing day out.Paul was very informative friendly and makes a good cup of tea.He has great knowledge of the wind farm, his middle name must be google. Don't bother looking at the others, just book this one, you won't regret it

Terrific trip, Paul. It was quite something to be eight miles out and so close to those massive towers. (The blades were idling that day there was so little wind.) Really appreciated all the info you shared on the wind farm and the tea and biscuits afterwards. (Thanks for topping up the custard creams!) it was great hugging the coastline on our return and getting such a breathtaking view of Brighton. We could have been on the Mediterranean that day (August 25th). We've recommended your excellent trip and the good ship Defiance to all our Rampion-curious friends!

Good experience

Our group arranged 3 separate trips with Paul during the Summer period, and without exception everybody enjoyed the experience, although at times the weather can be a challenge. Paul took a lot of time to keep us informed with his considerable knowledge of the project and the trip back along the coast at Brighton was a bonus. We would definitely recommend him.

Thank you so much for that fabulous trip to the Windfarm this afternoon!
We’ve been fascinated by its construction since it began and to see it close-up was absolutely fantastic!

Many thanks and best wishes

Hi Paul, My parents really enjoyed the trip. I will write a review on Facebook on their behalf in the next few days and will attach any photos they have. I must say that I am very surprised that so few people know about your trips. Nearly everyone that I have mentioned the trip to is amazed that that you can go out and see the wind farm and would love to do it. There is certainly a huge amount of potential custom for you if you can find a way to make them aware of your service. I’m not sure if you advertise anywhere other then on Facebook. Thanks again for a great service and trip.

I was on the 15 July trip and wonder if there is any chance of going again this weekend (perhaps the last chance with all three platforms present)?

Hi Paul My girlfriend and I came on a trip a few weeks ago. You may remember I chatted with you in the wheelhouse about my step dad going on a trip? I’d like to get vouchers for his birthday,
