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.

This experience was one of the best experiences we as a family have ever had! Nathan our driver was amazing! He has so much skill driving that boat! You’re definitely in safe hands! He was very knowledgeable about the island and the lighthouse. It was fantastic seeing the seals, you get quite close to them and it’s beautiful to see them in the wild. If you’re ever in St Ives, do this trip you won’t regret it!

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip with a fourteen and 7 year old and dog! There was a great combination of high speed fun and sealife spotting. We were lucky enough to spot a pod of dolphins as well as seals on the island. Nathan was knowledgeable about the wildlife and a superb driver! It was great fun!

I fully recommend the rib ride. Fast trip out to the lighthouse to see all the Atlantic seals. After stopping for photo opportunities, we raced back via Hayle bay doing slalem through flags and doing exhilarating tight turns. About a 45 minute trip overall. £30 per person was good value in my opinion.

We booked in with Roger at the end of the shopping street (toward the pier). We went for a short walk and returned there at the booking time to get our life jackets then walk to the boat. We had a blast as the water was a little choppy, making for a thrilling, bumpy ride out to the lighthouse. We saw seals at the lighthouse and also back in at the shore. Lots of good information about the lighthouse and then a full on ride back to the pier with lots of twists and turns. Recommended!!
