Thank you for your review. I’m glad you enjoyed your trip. The toilets on both my boats are located in the wheel house. If you join us for another trip, just ask the crew and they will show you where they are.

Did this 2 hour trip August 31 in perfect weather, hardly left the harbor before dolphins spotted an this was how it was the rest of the trip groups of 2/3/4, absolutely wonderful time. Skipper informative, knowledgeable, and amusing. Dogs allowed too.

Excellent boat trip, took 2 hour one and was not disappointed. Dolphins ✅. Choppy waters tested some sea legs, but that all part of the event.

It cost £20 per head. The boat took 12 people. It was very comfortable with plenty of room for walking around.
