Nice cruise with family at almost double the price

Good : We have booked the cruise online & had a good trip. Thank you. Bad: The same trip (from Poole to Jurassic Coast) are available for £10 for adults & £5 for kids. I’ve paid £51 for the family which is £21 more than the other operators. Notified this requesting a price matching but no response even after 5 days Warning : Plan your parking & next activity as this will be more than 2 hours including the waiting time at Swanage.
