Tenby is a spectacular place offering stunning views and sceneries. I felt like somewhere abroad on holidays! People are relaxed and enjoying themselves. Love the selection of boat trips. We've managed to visit st Catherine's island.

Had a fantastic island cruise on Saturday that lasted about 1.5 hours, weather was perfect and we saw a lot of seals, very informative and friendly crew, toilet facilities available. Very enjoyable trip and will do again, got some great photos.

Always unsure whether to spend the money on one of these trips or not, the weather was lovely so we decided we would go on this seal safari for a change. Must say it was great. We had a choice of the cheaper slower boat or the more expensive faster boat. We chose the more expensive boat as my son wanted this one and glad we did as this trip would be for apex 1 hour and that was enough time. We saw loads of seals and in their on natural habitat was lovely. They were sunbathing on the rocks and just chilling and not bothered by us at all. There was something so peaceful to see seals this way instead of them jumping up at the boat being fed fish. It was just lovely. The skipper was really good too full of information for us all. Lovely trip .

I telephoned the helpline as instructed on Saturday 10th September 2016 to find out if the boat services was running since although it was a calm sunny day, the previous day had been very windy. The telephone message said that there were boat trips running every 20 minutes starting at 10a.m.. However when we arrived (a 30 minute drive from our cottage and £3 to park) there was a sign saying "next boat trip on Monday". The weather had not changed and there was no explanation. We were not impressed.

First boat trip for many years, even though we are regular holidaymakers to Tenby. Opted for the Island Cruise as my son was more for a nice gentle boat after having been seasick on a crossing to the Channel Islands. The weather was amazing, the sea was like a mill pond.
The trip was amazing-an hour flew past so quickly. Saw plenty of seals. The boat cut its engines and got in really close to a rock full of them and turned the boat , giving plenty of camera opportunities for all. Saw birds, got the lowdown on Calder Island too.
In all, a wonderful hour and a quarter and worth every penny. Will try the Seal Safari next time.
