“BRILLIANT BELLROCK!!”

Arbroath Sea Safari
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Having done coastal last year decided on Bellrock this year.
Started off by watching the film about Bellrock so we knew the history before going out on the boat.
It was a warm sunny day, water nice n calm. As we sped out towards Bellrock our youngest (8) got upset & worried about 'giant waves & drowning'. . . Andrew was straight beside us and managed to reassure the wee one where I was failing (phew!)
Bellrock itself is a MUST SEE!! Absolutely STUNNING!!
As the name suggests LOADS of rocks around it and on our visit loads &loads of seals. Some sunbathing on the rocks, some swimming about not noticing us us while others played with each other and a few put on a show for us by splashing about and playing hide n seek.
It was all over far too soon but we also saw quite a few different birds flying over and beside us.
It's a fast hour but well worth it!!

Unfortunately for us and due to Commonwealth Games commitments by Andrew we didn't get to do coastal this year, but have booked to go thus weekend. Here's hoping the weather's on our side!!!

Brilliant trip. Made my husbands day as he had seen the BBC programme and was desperate to actually visit the Bell Rock. We were a bit disappointed that we couldn't do the 2 hour trip but we thoroughly enjoyed the 1 hour we had. The staff were great and the jackets and life jackets were good quality. We opted to sit at the front and it was a tue white knuckle ride. I have the stiff neck and bruises to prove it. However, it was brilliant and we now have our own fantastic photos of the lighthouse which we will treasure for years to come. A trip well worth doing but make sure you have a massage lined up on return!

Would highly recommend this trip. They offer either trip along the coast or out to the Bell Rock lighthouse. We went out to the lighthouse and the trip last an hour. There were loads of seals and sea birds. The group in front of us had been on the coastal trip and saw dolphins. Full waterproof clothing supplied along with buoyancy aid for adults and life jackets for children. Good adventure and suitable for all ages.
