Hi welshwizard1975. I somehow missed your review; thanks for taking the time. Glad you had a good time despite it being unusually chilly for your trip. A swim may have been a good idea to warm up a bit, it would have been warmer in the sea by the sound of it! I hope to see you next time, hopefully... More

We contacted Neil and even though his boat is in the docks, he provide fast feedback and valuable suggestions. In the end we opted for a 28 foot bavaria that could take us to see the dolphins, the whales and the sea turtles. Cost: EUR 600 for a 4 hour trip including drinks and lunch and round trip pick ups.... More

NeilGoodchild, Owner at Poker Chip Charter, responded to this review

Hi mddrijver. The Bavaria is probably about the latest addition to Puerto Colón's fleet of commercial boats, and is certainly one of the nicest for a private charter. I'm glad you got to see plenty of sea life too. Sorry to hear about your daughter's seasickness; not often a problem on smaller boats (less than the 30-60% casualties regularly found... More

Booked a 3 hour trip through Neil and had Dani as a skipper. Very friendly and we found pilot whales and dolphins then off for a lovely lunch and snorkel before finishing off with a banana boat ride. Everyone loved it and classed it as the best day of the holiday - even better than Siam park which is some... More

Hi Rich. Thanks for the review. Dani's boat isn't booked as much as some others as it's not obvious how much fun it is; it needs to be experienced before you find out. Thanks to you I can now quote or refer people to your review. All the best and I hope to see you next time. Regards, Neil. More

This review isn't about the poker chip charter, but about Neil the skipper who couldn't have done any more to help us out.

Hi Mark. Thanks for the review, glad all was good for you.

Im not a big fan of booking trips where lots of people are present so i found poker chip through a friend who recommended it. The skipper, Neil was always extremely helpful and always at hand, Thats made the experience more personal. Really enjoyed the day out on our own with the family. Would repeat again!

Neil did an amazing job organising a trip for us at fairly short notice. We were enjoying a family holiday to celebrate my husband's 65th and it happened to be his grandson's birthday whilst we were away- the birthday cake and candles were a lovely touch. The trip itself exceeded expectations - whales, dolphins and a turtle. A definite must... More
