Do we have sufficient ICE!

We don’t use icemakers because they simply don’t produce enough and are very power hungry and can’t supply the demands. So we have an independent 90 litre Engel-12 deg deep freezer .We try keep 16 1,5 litre bottles of solid ice  for your ice needs which we refill daily. We start the charters off with our 110 litre dedicated drinks freezer filled with bags of crushed ice. Should you still be concerned we happy to work with you and collect another cooler box full of ice or fill one of the fish boxes with additional ice charged to you at 25% handling fee on the invoice provided.
