Very nice trip to see Falmouth from the sea.

Good value for money, very enjoyable. 2 hours flew by, the captain was very informative. All waterproof jackets and coats were provided.

Such an amazing experience , our family so enjoyed 2 hours or so riding the sea on a Rib. Extra bonus was Perigrine Falcan, Common Seal, Gannets, Harbour Porpoise, and Dolphins, lots of them appearing to be playing, leaping about 3 ft out of the water and running alongside the Rib.Oh and lastly a Sun Fish . A safe family... More

Was given a full set of waterproofs and lifejacket by the crew on arrival, and given quick safety briefing. The boat was a little bumpy and you had some sea spray but was all manageable - got to see some seals which was a bonus! Good info about the local coastline, would recommend to any holiday makers

Nine of us, including two children, tried out this experience and everybody loved it! The Orca Sea Safaris team are very professional and are also excellent with children. A full safety briefing was followed by all of us being kitted out in waterproofs and life jackets and then away we went on a thrilling ride! We were told afterwards that... More

Booking went smoothly and on arrival given full waterproofs. Full boat. Whilst in harbour thought I was going to really enjoy the trip but once in open water it was really windy and cold. View of light house was great but no sightings of seals or whales which was disappointing but not the fault of the crew. Arrived back frozen... More

given the trip as part of our wedding gift list and it was a great experience. really friendly in terms of booking a date, (it had to be changed last minute) and rebooking a new time. given loads of wet weather gear and told to wear jumpers, which seemed overkill on a warm day but was needed! we didn't see...

My wife was given this trip for two as a birthday present and was really looking forward to it. When we had booked in we were supplied with wet weather clothing and the regulation life belt and then given a short sea safety chat. Once we and ten other people had boarded the Rib we set off on a short... More

We did the two hour trip in early May. The skipper was very informative and the whole trip great fun. We did see some jellyfish, one dolphin and quite a lot of birds, but nothing else. Clearly the company can't predict or change what is there to be seen, so I would recommend it.

We had a lovely experience on the Orca Sea Safari boat! The lady explains clearly before the boat ride that wildlife may not appear on demand, and although we did not get the chance to see dolphins that morning, we had a wonderful time! We saw a lot of birds, and the skipper explained carefully some fun wildlife anecdotes about... More

We booked for the two hour trip, due to a very squally day we were not able to take the full tour - we were promptly offered a full refund and had the alternative explained clearly to us. we went for it anyway, and the wind, rain and waves added to the thrill! Very well taken care of, informative captain,... More
