Can't really recommend this highly enough from our morning out doing this. We saw birds and seals and a brief glimpse of porpoise, although whilst we thought this was great by all accounts it wasn't particularly successful in terms of what you might get to see in terms of wild-life, but such is the nature of wildlife spotting I guess....

Booked this for 6 people. Great welcome and kitted out with waterproofs and buoyancy aids. Great skipper and hand with good info on area and wildlife. Saw cormorant,shag,gannet, harbour porpoise and Grey Atlantic seals. Skipper is a part time RNLI crew member so felt reassured. Worth the effort. Book early in good weather as they get busy.

Many thanks for choosing a trip with us and taking the time to write a great review. We do love it when the dolphins are around, it makes for a magical trip. It's great to see the seals too, who are resident at Worms Head, so we see them a lot. Yes, it is best to book in advance to... More

We live in Mumbles, had family visiting for the weekend and were looking an activity to interest everyone, from younger children, teenagers to older family members. Gower Coast Adventures didn't disappoint. We were met at Oxwich by Saul, who efficiently explained the safety points, outlined the important information about the trip and kitted us out with warm jackets and life... More

Visited today with my 6 year old daughter. Having grown up in Swansea, I wasn't expected to find this as exciting as I did, but both she and I loved every minute. The boat goes quickly :-). You will get wet getting on and off the boat - prepare for short people to need a full lower body change! Looking... More
