We went on the trip last week, the sea was pretty rough and, like others have said, people were being sick, we were ok though, saw dolphins after about forty five minutes, the trip did seem a bit long as we came back along the coast and stopped so people could swim around the boat. Would have been better if... More

The experienced crew quickly managed to track down dolphins and it was truly amazing being amongst them. We were treated to a show of acrobatics from one particular dolphin (theirs always one!) who couldn't resist showing off.

We took the 3 hour boat trip one afternoon last week and have to say never again!!! We were taken out to sea in what soon became apparent was rather choppy waters. It became very cold and people were wrapping themselves up with whatever they could, towels, cardigans etc. Not only was the water very choppy but the boat seemed... More

We really enjoyed this trip ( despite some crazy people who seemed to have no idea of the dangers of allowing their very young children total freedom to clamber around the boat when it was ploughing out to the dolphin area at high speed in very choppy waters) We saw plenty of dolphin activity although my ability to capture photos...

Wow well never in my time did I think I'd be lucky enough to be close enough to be able to touch wild dolphins!! A whole community of them as well! Mummy & babies, frolicking and jumping through the ocean, it was such a beautiful and emotional scene to see! See the guy at the booth at the very end... More

It took us just half an hour to get to the sea, by bus. We were guided onto the glass bottom boat, where we all sat down. They brought blankets round as it became cooler after they speeded up. The staff were very friendly and fun. They kept asking us if we wanted a drink. These were free. They also... More
