Myself and my daughter went out on a trip with David Ainsley in July, and had the most amazing experience. We saw, seals, porpoises, minke whales, red deer and sea eagles! David knew all the best places to go, and the trip didn't disappoint. The boat is very comfortable and we got hot drinks and biscuits. Will definitely book again... More

We had a wonderful day on the boat with stunning scenery and amazing wildlife which we felt very privileged to have seen. The weather in the preceding days had been rough to say the least and my sister and I were anxious that we would feel sick, but we took some ginger tablets and these worked very well. David and...

Once again we sailed with David and his lovely assistand Charlotte, who for such a lovely young lady has a mind full of information, she is also fantastic with the children and is a great story teller. David remembered I booked this cruise to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and boy did it show. We saw Minke Whale, Bay Porpoise,... More

These guys are great, won't say too much as other 5 star reviews say it all. Even the bad weather didn't take the shine off the trip. Thanks David and Sara for a fantastic experience

What an amazing day we had with David and Charlotte at Sealife Adventures. Both are marine biologists and passionate about wildlife. They were clearly as excited about spotting things as the passengers. We did a five-hour trip and wished it could have lasted longer. The boat is a good size and, with only twelve passengers on the trip, there was... More

Started off in typical Bank Holiday weather, drizzle mixed with sea fret (don't worry waterproofs are handed out, along with hot drinks). Although in the rain we had seals and an otter spotted. The weather brightened and 5 hours literally sailed by with stories and facts from both David (skipper) and Charlotte (who was very attentive as a host and... More

We took the 5 hour tour and had 12 people on board. When I first saw how small the boat was, I became concerned about sea sickness. Not to worry - the ride was smooth and we even went to the whirlpool area. The cabin on the boat is large enough that everyone can fit inside if it is chilly... More

David and Charlotte were excellent, both so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. David seemed to remember that my young daughter is interested in marine biology and diving and went out of his way to talk to her and involve her, even being allowed to steer the boat. However, seeing Moon jellyfish and being on a fast boat was her highlight. The trip... More

David and Charlotte were fantastic hosts. They really went the extra mile with hot drinks, binoculars and waterproofs. Very knowledgable. Wonderful trip. Saw sea eagle, porpoises, otters, jellyfish and seals. Well worth it.

Fantastic boat trip even if your unfortunate not to see the wild life that your hoping too. Its a pity that the wales, porpoise don't appear as we would like "on cue". David and Sara, where very informative, and tried to involve everyone. If you have, take your own binoculars you will find them very useful, although there are some... More
