We went on the Giants Causeway trip yesterday and struck it really lucky with the weather as it was the perfect day for it. The tour lasted for an hour and a half, and covered Portrush, the Skerries, Dunluce Castle, Portballintrae and the Causeway. The tour itself would have been enjoyable anyway, but was made so much better by the... More

Went to Portrush this afternoon. We thought we would do something different as a family and decided to go on the Portrush sea tour and had the hour long tour and it was the best day we've had in ages. Seeing all the different seals, birds and bunnies! Thanks to the Rankin's who run it, they are very knowledgable and... More

I brought my two young sons on Easter Tuesday and was worried they might get bored as it was 90 mins. It was a real hit and they wanted to go again. Crawford and his daughter were great hosts, very friendly and informative. Even one of the seals waved.

We went on the sea tour on St Patricks Day, 2015. Lovely clean and comfortable boat. Crawford and Pearl shared their excellent local knowledge with great enthusiasm. Really interesting tour with a visit to the 17 Skerries, the Giants Causeway and then back along the coast, the basalt columns and the many caves. Highly recommend for locals and tourists.

A group of us went out with Crawford for a run up the causeway coast and then over to Rathlin. Really great day out and Crawford has the right mix of geography/geology/mythology/history. Highly recommended.

Loving daughter presented her parents with a Causeway tour voucher. Not being the best sailor I was a little timid of wave bouncing heroics in a James Bond boat. Needn't have worried - no one was about to show off apart from a little enjoyable flourish at the end of the trip. Crawford the skipper could not have put us... More

My brother and I used portrush sea tours to scatter our fathers ashes on Wednesday 10th September 2014. Crawford and Becky took us that day. They were both very kind and caring to us and keen to make sure we were happy with where the ashes were scattered. They helped make a sad day perfect. Very professional.
