“Great fun and super people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Four of us had booked mid morning but despite amazing conditions and wonderful weather, after half an hour we had to turn back as the sea fog made it impossible to continue. Without being asked, Crawford and Pearl offered to take us out later in the afternoon. What a trip, zipping along the beautiful coast of North Antrim and returning casually as we soaked up all the beautiful scenery, much to the envy of those on shore!
Crawford apologised profusely about our late trip but didn't they both sort it for us all? They could have done no more, they were terrific!! Go enjoy yourselves, we did. Thank you Pearl and Craford

“A different way to see the Causeway and North Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Went on this trip on a RIB from Portrush Harbour to the Causeway last week.
Wholly recommend, as you get to see parts of the Causeway that are closed from land access, and also get great views of Dunluce Castle and the Skerries which had seals lying on the rocks.
Initially the water was quite choppy, but by the time the trip was over, this had become part of the fun.

“Great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I have been on two excursions with Portrush Sea Tours & really enjoyed them. The boat is stable & you feel really secure. It is an excellent way to see some of the sights - our tour took us out past the Skerries islands where we got close to sea birds & seals then in below Dunluce Castle (dating from the 1500s) and along the White Rocs and East Strand. The tour lasted around an hour and I believe was reasonably priced. What made the trip for me was the warmth & helpfulnesses of Crawford (skipper) and Pearl (tour guide). Pearl told us lots of interesting information about the sights & wildlife as we passed & Crawford was friendly and relaxed. On a personal note I took out a friend who was terminally ill & Crawford discretely helped him onto & off the boat & made sure he was comfortable - it was a magical time for us
