Went out with Sophie and Alex on 10th of August. Great tour, very accommodating as we had a couple of special requests. Wildlife seemed to be hiding but wasn't an issue at all. Watch our Alex's Dad jokes...

Loved the hour we spent on the RIB! The sun was shining and the sights of the coastline, coves and caves was great from the sea view. The team were really friendly and relaxed, sharing local stories and facts along the way. Our children particularly enjoyed the doughnut manoeuvres too. The trip was dog friendly which enabled us to enjoy as a family. For us this was the reason to stop in Ilfracombe.

We (my husband, 15yo son & I) just had a fantastic experience on a 2hr dolphin watching trip with Sea Safari (Ilfracombe). From the start all the staff & crew were friendly, polite & helpful. We obviously realised that there was no guarantee that we would see dolphins but within minutes of leaving the harbour, the skipper managed to find a pod of about 10 dolphins. They swam with the boat & played in the surf for a long period. From then on, we found groups of dolphin all round the stunning North Devon coastline. The staff were knowledgeable and attentive without being obtrusive & were really keen to ensure the passengers were happy & enjoying the trip. They were happy for our black labrador to join us on the trip, who also loved seeing the dolphins & was v tempted to jump in the water & become part of the attraction! Even if we hadn’t had seen any dolphins, the scenery was beautiful and it was a lovely way to spend 2hrs at sea in the evening after a very warm summer’s day. I definitely recommend this trip to anyone who enjoys seeing wildlife & beautiful scenery. It far exceeded our expectations! Access to the boat was down some harbour steps, but staff were on hand to help if needs be. Thank you very much!
