We're here in Cornwall for a week and on the spur of the moment and because the weather was fab, we booked a 10am 2 hourly boat trip with Orca Sea Safari. Just feeling the fresh air on your face as you skirted the wonderful shore line, before aiming out to sea, was pleasant enough, but the excitement of spotting... More

Was given this trip by my daughter as a reward for looking after 7yr old grandaughter for a week We all went on this trip and have to say it was great. Now, I used to live near Falmouth and thought I knew most of the area but seeing it from offshore whilst having a thrill ride puts a whole... More

Or to put it more accurately, 2 hours sitting in a fun boat looking along the coasts around Falmouth with a reasonably entertaining tour guide / pilot. Before going on this I read the reviews, and saw quite a few people complaining that there was no wildlife to be seen on the tour. Newscast people!! It's called "wild" for a... More

We enjoyed this trip. We saw seals and a few unusual sea birds. The boat ride itself is fun and fast and the skipper gives plenty of info along the way.

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
