I enjoyed this trip with my 4 year old son. I think he expected to see more but I thought it was important that he realise it's not a theme park and you can never predict exactly what you will see. "A basking shark eating stuff" was always a bit of an ask! We did see a lot, including seals,... More

We had a brilliant time on the glass bottom boat this afternoon - Richard was an excellent guide and gave us loads of information in a very family friendly way. Letting the kids drive the boat back made their day - I'd recommend this experience to everyone!

fabulous wee trip. Wasnt expecting too much but it was probably the best we trip we have done for a long time. Amazing just how much there is to see in the sea bed. The chap was very very knowledgable, showed us lots of sea creatures (passed over by returning fishermen) before we even left the harbour, Very knowledgable on... More

Excellent boat trip. Creature checklists given to kids was huge hit as was our son steering the boat back to the harbour. Richard was very knowledgable and had great stories and facts of Sealife. Waterproof and warm jackets were given out as weather was poor which was fantastic for us who were not fully rain prepared. Certificates given to kids... More

From the time of booking with the most friendly efficient lady in the Booking Office to the time I got off the boat at the end I had a most enjoyable time. The 'Captain' was extremely knowledgeable in everything around us from flora to bird life. A nice touch to allow children to steer us home! The trip lasted around... More

Richard and Jill are so lovely! We left our dogs in the van and Jill watched over them while we went on the trip around the harbour. I can honestly say it was really pleasant. I was amazed by little things like seeing the seaweed stand like trees underwater, scuttling crabs, scholes of fish, starfish, jellyfish and so much more.... More

Had a really good trip with these guys. We'd had a disappointing customer service experience with one of the other companies on the pier and decided to book a same-day tour with this company instead. Had a group of 6 girls and at the time of booking, were the only people signed up. Inquired if we could bring a bit... More
