We’d been meaning to go on one of these trips for a long time and as it happened, a patch of good summer weather co-coincided with my husband’s 65th birthday. We decided the day before to take a chance on getting a booking- and we did. What a blast of a time we had leaving Oxwich heading for Worm’s head... More

Fabulous day for a boat trip. Smooth ride from Oxwich. Great to see the coast from the sea. Thrilled to see a porpoise , an octopus jellyfish, lots of nesting gilimots and kitiwakes. Really nice crew. Can't wait to do it again.

Having tired out our 2 boys with plenty of walks on the Gower peninsula, we thought we'd give them a break from the hiking and treat them to a boat ride along the coastline of the peninsula. We (and they) were not disappointed! it was a great trip, Dave and Lizzie (skipper and mate) were very welcoming, friendly and informative... More
