A most wonderful afternoon at sea and being escorted by dolphins that can close to the boat. The guide was wonderful and a very warm personality

Great, quick trip to see the Puffin colonies—flying everywhere, floating on the water, & perched up on sides of island.

Convenient to hotel. Multiple tours per day to choose from. Knowledgeable guide. Clean and up to date boat. Highlight was getting so close to so many puffins, none of which can be seen from the mainland. Trip only runs a few months a year during nesting season.
