It was my first time ever doing a wildlife trip and I could recommend doing this one more highly. Although you’re not guaranteed to see specific wildlife, we were lucky enough to see Minke Whales, Common Dolphins, Harbour Porpoise and Grey Seals among a number...More

The crew are excellent and help make the trip well worth the money without being over the top. The vessel is really good for this sort of activity with a high viewing area that gives a good all round chance to see what wildlife may...More

Thank you for your review and glad you enjoyed the trip. Yes, we are working on reducing engine noise and will hopefully have this sorted in the coming months. Our exhaust is external to the boat which does reduce engine noise in the water which...More

It’s always hard to review something which involves spotting wildlife. Especially as I have a lifelong history of said wildlife hiding when I turn up. This trip was made pleasurable by a friendly and expert crew, but sadly we didn’t have a great hit rate....More

Hi Fiona, shame about the wildlife, but thank you appreciating that there's not a lot we can do to if they choose to hide away. We always try to do out best to find them, but as you say it is often a matter of...More

Don't get me wrong, we had a great day but given the glorious weather, and our love of being on a boat, I imagine the same would have been said of any boat trip. The "crew" were all very nice, we were offered tea or...More
