“10 out of 10”

Arbroath Sea Safari
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Just seen that mine will be the 10th review for Sea Safari and it definitely scores a maximum 10 from us. We were bought a trip on the Bellrock Express as a Christmas present from family in Arbroath.
We knew we would be travelling up in May from Lincolnshire so made arrangements with Andrew to join tour; Very accommodating and helpful as my wife has a mobility problem and both Andrew and his mum in office went out of their way to ensure she was able to enjoy the trip.
After setting off on the Friday, the sea conditions were such that we had to return to harbour but were able to complete the tour the following day.
What a privilege it is to travel 11miles out to the Bell rock on the rib and there is a genuine sense of amazement when you try to imagine what conditions must have been like for those men who constructed the lighthouse all those years ago. As you circle the reef you see the odd seal poking their heads out of the water and puffins fly alongside the rib.
All in all an amazing experience which I would recommend to anyone visiting Arbroath and a big, big thank you to Andrew for all his help on the day.

Dolphins, Puffins, a (very) fast boat, and an excellent guide!

I can only recommend this tour for everybody! Andrew was an excellent guide, showing us the local bird life, scenery, and made is all smile and enjoy a very fast ride through the waves :)
To top it all of, we even saw Dolphins along the way.

Waterproof and warm gear was provided, and needed ;)

Though unsure as to what to expect from the trip, it turned out to be very enjoyable! The guide knew the history of the lighthouse perfectly, being able to answer all questions without hesitation. An unexpected joy was seeing perhaps around 20 seals, apparently a common occurrence for the trip! It is excellent for anyone, whether interested in history or nature. What's more, the boat ride could be managed well even by those who feared sea sickness, whilst still being exciting for youngsters. All round an excellent trip, and definitely recommended!

The RIB that they operate is truly fantastic and the enthusiasm and obvious enjoyment that the owners get out of running this business makes the experience really enjoyable. I went with my four year old son and he thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The tour took us up the coast towards Lunan Bay. On they way we entered several caves. We felt safe at all times and the recieve excellent local knowledge of the wildlife and history. We were lucky enough of see several pods of dolphins and even got to see them within 20 metres of the RIB. The captain was just as enthralled to see them even though he must have seen them many times. The tour lasted longer than the advertised hour as he was willing to stay while the dolphins were playing. The trip back to the harbour was really exciting as the throttles were opened up to really feel the wind in your hair. The sea was calm so it felt very safe but don't expect to get a speed thrill if the sea is choppy. We were very fortunate with the conditions. Overall a really exciting last day to our holiday in Arbroath and I would recommend it to anyone with or without children.
