Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I cannot recommend this company enough.. after a traffic issue they moved mountains so we could make the trip, the guides were brilliant telling us all about the local wildlife and area and we saw dolphins. It was just perfect 🥰

The staff made the trip so interesting with the helpful commentary. The two ladies guiding us were educational and amusing! They're clearly very informed in both the coastline, local history and the wildlife. We felt comfortable, safe and well looked after. A great price and well worth the visit.

Todays trip was magical. We saw lots of dolphins and a couple of grey seals. We even saw a dolphin with its baby! The crew were really friendly & so informative. We would really recommend going if you are in the area. We went for my partner’s birthday treat & it had made it a day to remember. Thanks to Jonathan & Cerys for taking us.

Superb 1.5 hour trip from New quay on Friday at 10.50. Went with the purpose of wildlife/dolphin photography..saw a decent number of Dolphins throughout the trip. The trip is extremely informative, got a lot of info about the Dolphins and local wildlife etc from Sarah and Chloe who were the guides on board. Well worth the money..and look forward to going out again.
