We’ve been out a few times over the years with Orca Sea Safaris and never been disappointed but today was amazing spending 10-15 minutes with dolphins swimming around the boat. Brilliant (if a little wet and cold!). 😀

Trip lasted over 2.5 hours as we saw a Basking shark on the way back to the Harbour. The skipper was very knowledgeable and took the time even though time was up to show us the basking shark. Highly recommended shall be coming back!

The two hour coastal explorer trip was fantastic. Beautiful coastline and the knowledgable, experienced and eagle eyed pilot, Steve, managed to find some dolphins as a wonderful bonus. Steve and his team are very friendly and we felt very safe after the safety briefing, all...More

They just said wear warm clothes. We had tshirt, jumper, jeans, Trainers & a rain coat. They gave you a proper wet weather coat & trousers. It was warm in Falmouth but when we got out in the sea it was colder.
