Spent a wonderful time on this boat. Very friendly, informative staff. Were extremely lucky with the weather and saw a family of dolphins and numerous seals and birds but would have been worth every penny for the scenery- just stunning. Thoroughly recommended

Avril, our cruiser “Dolphin Spirit” is very stable and does not move much in rough weather, I think it will be suitable for you. Please come along and I am sure we can accommodate your needs. Thank you Yvette
