We had a great experience on this tour in early April. It was a cold Sunday and we rugged up with beanies and coats as we boarded the boat. We were very lucky to see a pod of dolphins up close within 5 mins of leaving the pier. So magical. We also saw birds and seals. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable and it was great to learn more of the history of the bay as we moved down the coast. Would definitely recommend. Thanks.

Everyone - children and grandchildren enjoyed the great experience although the weather was rather cold. The dolphins came out to play which was wonderful and they enjoyed their swim with the seals too. One granddaughter said" it was the best Christmas present ever".

Marlin + Lannie were so professional, knowledgeable and nurturing. I booked this experience as a part of my Yoga Retreat with the focus being around 'Fear' and being courageous. The weather wasn't ideal but Marlin adjusted the itinerary to suit the conditions and our needs. The women stepped out of their comfort zones with full support from Lannie + Marlin. The afternoon was amazing! The laughs, squeals and giggles continued well into the next day as we shared stories of our experiences in the boat and the water. An absolute must do experience! Heart felt Thanks to you both! I will be back again!

We saw so many seals!!! Swimming with them was one of the best things I've ever done. Seeing the weedy sea dragon, rays, dolphins and sea birds were an added bonus. It was lovely having a smaller boat to zip around on as it made it feel like a private tour away from the crowds. Only downside was that I can't do it every day. Great value for money. Staff are amazing! Loved it!
