“Bay to remember”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

This was the highlight of our holiday. Staff and family were so helpful and friendly. We didn't see any dolphins but it didn't seem to matter as we had such a good time anyway, the kids favourite bit was going fast over the waves.

“....WOW!!!! (The highlight of our holiday)”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

I have been coming back to Cardigan for 3 years. Each time I've been with Bay to Remember and each time it's been the highlight of our holiday. Staff are so informative and knowledgeable. Taking time to point out sights and animals. They also make it clear that this is your boat trip, so you can have a say in what you want to see. We saw a porpoise, seals, birds, jellyfish and we went into a cave. The ride itself is fantastic and exhilarating. I always regret that we can only afford to go just once. I will definitely be going back next year!!

“A wonderful trip.”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

This has got be one of the highlights of our week in Cardigan. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The trip itself was better than we expected and exhilarating. The views are spectacular and seeing Mwnt from the sea was almost as good as climbing it. Will definitely be on our 'to do' list when we hope to go back next year.

“Unforgettable”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

We went on the 4:15pm trip from Poppit Sands on 22/08/2013 and were amazed at not only seeing dolphins but spending most of the trip (90 minutes) with them swimming close to the boat and passing under us a number of times. We followed a small family group with young calf as well as seeing some others joining the group and a couple of porpoises and a number of seals. The guides were knowledgeable and also extremely respectful to the dolphins giving them plenty of opportunity to move away from us if they wished. I don't think a 'wildlife boat trip' could have been any better than this one. We were certainly very lucky.

The Bay to Remember company were very good. We booked late, the evening before, and even at 7pm there was someone to answer the phone and help us with our booking. They explained very clearly about the need to board from the beach and having to transfer to the bigger boat at sea because of the tides. For us, it made the trip all the more exciting and fun. They took safety extremely seriously ensuring that everyone had life jackets on correctly and knew how to use them if the need should arise.

Overall, extremely professional and knowledgeable. The icing on the cake was the bit they couldn't control - the wildlife that accompanied us! Highly recommended.

“Most awesome day EVER!!!!!!”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

What an amazing experience we had on the 4.15pm sailing from Poppit Sands on 22/08/13. After hearing of days of sailings and all day nothing being spotted bar the odd porpoise, we had resigned ourself to nothing more but were amazed to spend our whole journey in the company of a small family (picture attached), then joined later by another, as well as porpoise, seals etc. Truly amazing, excellent knowledgeable guides (made the trip more special). I did not know I had the pic until checking later!

The Poppit Sands trip does have to be reached by walking to a small boat through shallow surf and then transferring to the larger boat - all part of the experience for some but if you do have difficulties with this it would be advisable to avoid this and choose another! For us, it just made the trip that bit more unique. The hour and half trip is great - just a shame it had to end.

For those that know me and my family you can rest assured my youngest summed it up best - "most awesome day EVER!" This was the stuff dreams are made of.

Thanks for the review Chris and thanks for coming out with us. You are right that our Poppit Sands trips are only for those that don't mind getting their feet wet and aren't suitable for anyone with restricted mobility. We only depart from Poppit during the busy Summer holiday period to enable us to accommodate demand. Our main departure point of Gwbert which offers easy dry quayside boarding suitable for anyone. Hope to see you again :-)
