      Sightseeing? Ha Ha Ha
      We were told it was a sightseeing tour of the bay. Nearly $400 later, we sat in the boat near some seals and watched the others snorkeling. Totally boring trip and a financial rip off!

      Great experience!!
      This was a really cool trip with super nice employees that are willing to answer questions. Sadly I couldn't swim with Dolphins because they were too shy that day but we still saw a few. They also have really good new looking wet suits they keep you really warm.

      Dolphins and Seals
      This was one of the most amazing experiences I had so far! Even though our close up encounter with the dolphins was only like 5 seconds - we saw a lot of them from afar, but they seemed to be hunting for fish and not interested in us. However, we went to a little island with seals and they swam with us and got super close! There was even a baby seal. The water was pretty chilly (~13°C in October) - the wetsuits keep you warm underwater but we were freezing afterwards. Totally worth it though!

      Loads of dolphins and seals
      My daughter and I sail regularly on wildlife tours, and as Peninsula locals, we both love Moonraker. We’ve been on a variety of boats, and this vessel is big, clean, and provides awesome visibility. The crew were all equally friendly, and excited to show us the local marine life. We loved our tour, and would highly recommend.

      Ok
      Trip was ok. More about other things than actual seeing dolphins. Even though we had a thick wetsuit it was freezing especially after getting back to the boat and waiting another 20min to get to the next spot.

      Relaxing, magical and fun!!
      Polperro were amazing, the team so knowledgeable and friendly. We were put onto their boat last minute, which saved the day. My partner swam and loved it, said the experience with the seals was incredible. I sat safely on the boat and enjoyed every minute. So many up close on the boat of both seals and dolphins. Was the perfect amount of time, lovely hot drinks and scones. We will be back as bring out boys for this years birthday presents.

      Seal and Dolphin trip
      Nice boat trip with a very good crew. Trip was Informative. Sadly no dolphins, which was the main reason for booking the trip. I thought you'd be fairly certain you would see a few dolphins, so we were a little disappointed, having driven 90 mins to get there. The boat was clean, toilets were on board, and we were given a couple of biscuits too. Trip was good. We saw the seals and some birds. We understand these are wild animals so it's up to them whether they decide to show up...

      Amazing experience
      I was able to swim with dolphins, seals and a weedy sea dragon, so the crew (and the animals) absolutely delivered! I could see that the crew had to balance a number of variables; tracking down dolphins and seals, respecting distance and safety of the animals, and of course making sure swimmers were OK. The staff were very knowledgeable about the creatures, and told us many facts about their behaviour which added to the day. I think it is important to remember, as we are told, that these are wild animals, and they will move around the bay and not always 'perform'. Having said that, I feel grateful that I was able to go out on this cruise and have an unforgettable experience. Dolphins swam right beneath us at one stage, and we swam very close to seals in another location.

      Kids loved it. 10/10 everytime
      Second time and it was still amazing. I surprised my partner and her/our children and it was as good as the first time. I have done the activity before so wanted to share it with my family for a summer holiday day out. It was just as good if not better! The staff were so incredibly helpful and made sure the kids got to see the animals plus gave them lots of snorkeling lessons. I cant say enough about how good this tour was, food, drinks and friendly staff it was money well spent. See you in a few years!

      Not happy and no recommended
      First of all i’ll give tripadvisor a one star and never going to book my plans with them, on a day we had booking it was no 3 hours cruise just 90 minutes and the time tripadvisor confirmed was 1:00pm, I took my 2 and 3 years old on a sun from 12:30 but after half an hour waiting and seeing no cruise I rang the company and they told me you don't have any booking with us at all, finally after long conversation over the phone they found out tripadvisor just sold us the ticket without any booking with the moonraker company. Any way after 1 hour waiting they fit us on a 90 minutes cruise and we haven't seen any dolphins by our ends. The only thing I can say is they have a friendly and nice crews otherwise It was our second time with this company and haven't seen any dolphins never go back and not recommend at all specially booking with tripadvisor.

      NOT WORTHY SIGHTSEEING
      Saw the $85 sightseeing package on booking.com and thought it was only a sightseeing service. In fact we were joined with people who are going for swim. And for the 2hours we were waiting on the boat under the sun as the boat is not shaded. The most upset thing is that there were not enough seats (too many people at the same boat) and most of the seats are very wet because the people swimming are seating with the sightseeing person. Really don’t recommend anyone to spend $85 for “sightseeing”. Just a waste of money and time waiting for people swimming. Booking.com should take this misleading sightseeing down.
