We had an unforgettable experience on the 3 hour sealife safari. Kev & Annie were great. Annie shared her vast knowledge of the sealife with all of us on the boat. We saw some seals chilling on the rocks just off the Padstow coast, and over 2 hours into the trip we came across a pod of dolphins jumping in and out of the water and bow-riding the boat. It was amazing to see these beautiful, curious animals in the wild. It would have been an enjoyable trip even if we didn't spot the dolphins but Kev & Annie were really determined to find them.

We didn’t have much time so did the 1 hour seal safari. Even if you didn’t see any wildlife, the ride on the rib was so much fun, very fast and got some great views of the coastline. We were incredibly lucky to see some dolphins just off of Port Isaac. They came right up to the boat which was absolutely amazing! This is a must do if you are in the Padstow area, lovely tour guide and brilliant experience from start to finish.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are glad that you had a good time with us during your trip and it sounds like you were very lucky to see the dolphins on the 1 hour trip as we don't always get to see them during these. We definitely agree that getting to see our fantastic coastline is also worth it! We hope that you can join us again in he future.

A fantastic experience with Padstow sea safari, it was a choppy ride and got very wet. So when they suggest you wrap up warm I would listen as we got very wet and was grateful for there clothes! We did see dolphins, mink whale and seals. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are glad that you had a good time with us and got to see lots of wildlife. It can get very wet and cold out there, even on the hot summer days, so it is always worth wrapping up in layers and waterproofs. We hope that you will join us again in the future.
