What an amazing experience we had on the 4.15pm sailing from Poppit Sands on 22/08/13. After hearing of days of sailings and all day nothing being spotted bar the odd porpoise, we had resigned ourself to nothing more but were amazed to spend our whole journey in the company of a small family (picture attached), then joined later by another, as well as porpoise, seals etc. Truly amazing, excellent knowledgeable guides (made the trip more special). I did not know I had the pic until checking later!
The Poppit Sands trip does have to be reached by walking to a small boat through shallow surf and then transferring to the larger boat - all part of the experience for some but if you do have difficulties with this it would be advisable to avoid this and choose another! For us, it just made the trip that bit more unique. The hour and half trip is great - just a shame it had to end.
For those that know me and my family you can rest assured my youngest summed it up best - "most awesome day EVER!" This was the stuff dreams are made of.

Thanks for the review Chris and thanks for coming out with us. You are right that our Poppit Sands trips are only for those that don't mind getting their feet wet and aren't suitable for anyone with restricted mobility. We only depart from Poppit during the busy Summer holiday period to enable us to accommodate demand. Our main departure point of Gwbert which offers easy dry quayside boarding suitable for anyone. Hope to see you again :-)
