This trip made my summer, I could not stop smiling all day. It was exhilarating to be on the RIB, and the Captain took us out to try and see wildlife, he gave a very interesting commentary. It would still have been fantastic if we had not seen Dolphins, but we were lucky enough to be honoured, and the Captains... More

Friendly, professional and fun from start to finish. We were all provided with waterproof (and wind proof!) jackets and trousers and a life jacket before boarding. As we set out through the harbour, Steve gave us lots of information about the harbour, what we were passing, what was in the docks........all interesting and as an ex-local I still learnt a... More

Organiser of the sea trip was very helpful and the sea trip itself was informative. Quite expensive, £39 each for 2 hours, which for 2 senior citizens was hard to find but if we had seen any orcas or dolphins would have been well worth it. Had to get dressed in waterproof trousers and coats, no very large size available... More

Although it was a warm day we were advised that it's cooler on the water & kitted out against mishap. We sailed on time & headed south while learning a little about the coastline & some of the wildlife.It was exciting to think we might see something amazing & we did. A pod of about forty dolphins who came really... More

Cracking way to spend two hours. we had to get kitted up in waterproofs and I have to say I was a little disappointed to only get a bit of spray. We went out looking for cetacea apparently but only saw a couple of Grey Seals and a glimpse of some Harbour Porpoise. Unfortunately the Dolphins and Basking Sharks were... More

This small operation, based n ear the National Maritime Museum at Falmouth, proved proved very competent, safe and friendly. They offer three sailings a day of two hours each and when we looked seriously most were fully booked - only 12 places on their very modern boat. Our group of six booked online which was efficient and easy, paying at... More

Booked online, very easy. Turned up for the 4pm tour, weather was fab. the skipper, Ian, was very knowledgeable. Unfortunately did not see any mammals, but saw a variety of gulls and other birds. I guess it is just the luck off the draw, but you do go a long way out in search of mammals, so its not like... More

First thing I want to say is that before I went on this, I was fully aware that orca safari cannot guarantee you will see any wildlife or control the weather, never the less I was disappointed that we didn't see any wildlife at all, except a sea gull. For what was just an enjoyable boat trip. It was expensive... More

Thankyou for taking the time to add a review. As you stated we make it very clear that wildlife cannot be guaranteed. It is enevitable there will always be some trips that are quieter than others, this can happen between trips on the same day. You will see from our recorded sightings that we see a wide variety of species.... More

We enjoyed our trip out with Orca. The guide, Steve, was really knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. Steve worked really hard to get to the best places and give us the best opportunity of seeing wildlife. We saw plenty of birds and had a brief glimpse of a seal! Thought the trip was really great and good value for... More
