Very good value boat trip run by friendly and informative crew. We didn't see any dolphins but the sea was very choppy so no surprise there. Our girls loved it and their highlight was being boarded by the RNLI during a training exercise.

We went on this a couple of weeks ago apart from the fact that we actually saw Dolphins which was great the staff both before, during, and after the trip were awesome, my husband is disabled so they moved cars in oder for us to get closer to the boat and helped him onto it nothing was to much trouble and actually they were great with all the passengers Well done to you all

Went out on a beautifully sunny day. Boat was a little crowded but still great fun. Captin did a great job with commentary and we spotted some dolphins! Very reasonably priced. Would go again.

£15 buys you two amazing hours of dolphin watching with a brilliant commentary on all the wildlife on the way. This two hour trip is a must for all wildlife, scenery and nature lovers. You can do one hour but I'd recommend two as you go further out and see some amazing scenery.

We did the 1030 trip and it onlyhash 9 people on it which was great for all of us as we could move around the boat easily.....the 1230 trip was packed so get up early and beat the crowds.

The guide was very knowledgeable and so friendly ....she said she was the older model to one of the other tourists but we loved her and we took up her recommendation to visit a nearby town which was also great

We also saw James Bond.............
