We went on a 2 hour safari on a RIB. Owner knowledgeable, friendly and professional. We were given waterproofs and life jackets with a good safety briefing. Adults and kids will all enjoy this fun, exciting trip. We saw a wide variety of sea birds, seals and pods of dolphins. Very reasonably priced too....a must if you are in Padstow!

Sea life safaris, awesome trip. We did the 1 hour trip as we have 2 young children. Saw seals, dolphins, and a variety of birds .We were very lucky, but even if we'd seen nothing I would still give sea life safaris a great review. The boat was excellent, the guides helpful and all staff professional and friendly.

Went on the two hour trip. Everything was run so smoothly from turn up to getting on board and even leaving. Obviously well organised. The trip started in brilliantly within ten minutes we were searching for wildlife near Puffin Island, being given great information by our skipper/guide. Saw so many marine species, lots of birds and two marine mammals species; several grey seals and a big pod of common dolphins. They know exactly where to go and how to behave around the wildlife. Would highly recommend! Worth it! Dress up warm and waterproofed and be prepared for an exhilarating and damp ride with lots to see.

A great day out - kids and adults loved it even in the rain!! Seeing seals was a highlight - although kids just loved driving fast in the boat! Highly recommended

The skipper and guide were both very friendly and professional, informative and made the experience a must for people who like being on high speed boats and who enjoy learning about the wildlife. We got to see all sorts of sea birds, along with seals and also a small pod of dolphins. Will definitely be returning.
