Our highly experienced and professional Skippers and shoreside team guarantee the highest levels of service, both afloat and on-shore.

Having worked closely with numerous production teams, we are fully aware of the logistics required with this type of filming and have all the necessary paperwork in place to meet production company insurance requirements.

We work in close collaboration with directors and crew, providing advice based upon requirements and can provide the following services;

Our extensive marine knowledge, including tides, weather and the local topography has proved invaluable on numerous shoots, helping to add scope and depth to the project.
