We were planning to go with one of the companies that has RIB boats and were disappointed they were all fully booked. We 'settled' for this as we didn't want to miss the dolphins. Waiting for the departure time the skipper turned out to be...More

Friendly, informative and excellent. There a a number of trips each day so you can find a time to suit you. There was no rush as the Skipper did his best to pleas his guests. Would recommend using them.

It was an absolute fantastic experience! We spotted a lot of dolphins and they swam right besides and underneath the boat. There's no better way to see the dolphins that close. The boat is quite small so make sure to make a reservation beforehand.

This trip was great value for money with a skipper who has impressive local knowledge. We almost didn't go out as a slow day for customers but we weren't disappointed. It was a "slow day" for dolphins but we did get great views albeit brief...More

What an amazing boat trip. We were lucky enough to see many dolphins across the bay. The boat is water jet propelled so no wildlife are harmed by rudders or equipment whilst sailing. It was a shame to see the other ribbed boat speeding directly...More
