Great boat trip on nice wooden boat/ship. Lots of dolphins around few whales. Great experience. Good customer service in the place of booking and on the boat :) The boat trip last 2 hours and they do it every two hours 11am, 3pm and 5pm. Great views of the island and great experience.

We did the 2 hours trip to see the Pilot whales and actually spent quite a long time looking at them as we found them quite quickly. Everyone enjoyed the trip although the kids were a bit bored after a while but the entertainer on the boat kept most of them going. I would advise anyone who suffers motion sickness... More

We booked a 3 hour tour, great trip. Within half an hour we were spoilt with spotting a fin whale, then bombarded with pilot whales. This is the first boat trip I have been on where we have actually seen the marine life we were promised. Selection of reasonably priced drinks & lunch was included. They have three options for...

It was old, dirty, smelly and decrepit, I hated it but, 90% on board seemed to love it. But If you really want to do it then my advice would be :- 1. Take a hat - As there's no shade, apart from the deck below, but beware one side (starboard) smells of the toilets, whilst the port side smells... More

We bought our tickets on line and showed up to the port at the time indicated. The line moved very fast and there was space for everyone to travel comfortably. The crew were helpful and professional. The ferry was clean. We left on time and were picked up on time. Very good service.
