So glad you enjoyed your trip. We try to make it interesting as well as giving you a bit of a thrill. The dolphins were an added bonus s you never know if or where they're going to appear.

We booked on line, and though far from cheap, I can thoroughly recommend this trip. The rib boat we took seated 12 people (I think), and right from the start it's clear that the team pride themselves on providing a friendly welcome and a fun...More

Thank you. Glad you enjoyed it. We can't guarantee dolphins, of course, but we've been very lucky this summer with a large pod moving into our area. Seeing intelligent beings up so close is always a thrill
