Great litle boat with lots of information on surrounding area. Loved that the skipper went round in circles so everyone got to see the seals and puffins! Thank you!

Pleasant people in the kiosk and on the boat. Very informative commentary throughout the trip. Excellent viewing of harbour porpoise, seals, and literally thousands of sea birds on Puffin Island and the surrounding waters. Stupid of me not to take my binoculars!More
