What a fantastic outing with 2 friends and our 5 dogs whilst on holiday in the area! From booking over the phone with a lovely girl (with an update call to let us know we would be taking a dinghy over to the boat due to low tide) to the 2-hour trip itself on calm seas under a beaming sun.

We saw many dolphins and a few seals :) a stunningly beautiful day and an informative guide and great pilot-both very friendly and kind, and great help when boarding the dogs. Thank you from all of us for making it such a wonderful experience.

a truly great 2 hour trip - didn't see much wildlife a few dolphins and gannets but then wildlife doesn't perform for you. It was great to see the beautiful coastline from the sea. Well worth going. However although the brochure said there were on board toilets this was not the case.

Thank you for your review. I’m glad you enjoyed your trip.
The toilets on both my boats are located in the wheel house. If you join us for another trip, just ask the crew and they will show you where they are.

Did this 2 hour trip August 31 in perfect weather, hardly left the harbor before dolphins spotted an this was how it was the rest of the trip groups of 2/3/4, absolutely wonderful time. Skipper informative, knowledgeable, and amusing. Dogs allowed too.

Went on the two hour trip, started off well the first hour in reasonable weather then it started to rain so the last hour was a bit miserable. Oh yes and we didn't see a single Dolphin only a seals head and some cormorants. Still that's your look.
