Myself and two friends booked the two hour trip earlier this week and thoroughly enjoyed it. One of our party is using a mobility aid and the team couldn’t have been more helpful lifting the aid on and off the boat and making sure she was ok. The trip itself was excellent and we were so lucky to see seals and dolphins which was an added bonus. Sarah’s commentary was absolutely brilliant, she was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the wildlife and her joy in her job was very clear to see and hear. Our captain Daffyd was equally as enthusiastic. We were again fortunate to have fantastic weather for the duration of our trip. I think this is probably the best Dolphin spotting trip I have ever been on so Thank you very much Sarah and Daffyd. 😄👏

Had a lovely time, gorgeous boat, new clean and not crowded. We really appreciated not having the loud speaker system heard from other boats, which is surely going to disturb the wildlife. Very knowledgeable staff, helpful and kind.

We booked a 1 hour trip, and whilst we didn't see any dolphins, it was a really enjoyable trip round the bay. Jonathan and Elizabeth were fantastic guides and it was a pleasure to spend time with them.

We booked a 9am 90 minute 'cruise' and were one of only three couples on a boat which to take 42 so had plenty of room to see all around. By the time we returned to the jetty there were long queues waiting to board. Saw lots of different seabirds and seals and a small pod of dolphin on the way back. Really enjoyable.
