Sark and caves

Exhilarating trip around sark exploring the caves. Awesome scenery going into the caves and can see weathering of the rocks over millions of years I guess

Way, way beyond expectations. As grandparents, we took one of our sons, his wife and their two children. A trip of pure wonder.

A fantastic hours trip to see Puffins around Herm and its surrounding island. You are given a very warm rain Mac to wear under your life jacket. Even for July it was a bit chilly! Very informative commentary and many other bird species seen. So many of the tiny puffins were seen, great to see this declining bird doing so... More

Just spent a wonderful hour out on the water with the Island Rip Voyage Seal Safari can't think of a better way of seeing such wonderful wildlife. My son thoroughly enjoyed it and staff where very helpful and patient and I would highly recommend it to holidaymakers or locals alike and will be doing again hopefully later in the summer.

Had a brilliant hours trip on the rib to see the puffins,it was pretty windy and the sea was a bit wild but we saw plenty of puffins and other birds too. A thoroughly enjoyable and exciting ride.We were a bit disappointed when our second trip to the caves was cancelled because of the weather but understand that safety comes... More

So glad you enjoyed the puffins. Pity about the caves but the boat has to squeeze into the cave with inches to spare and if the sea conditions aren't just right we have to abandon it More

Went to see the puffins earlier this month. Was not disappointed. Saw lots of the little birds and managed to capture several decent images although the zoom lens was essential. Will go again next year.

An expensive but reasonable trip. On the website they talk about giving binoculars to everyone on the trip and having a bird expert who can point out the various birds for you, this is all fantasy but they will give you a good speedboat trip including a few doughnuts if you are lucky, and you will see puffins. Feedback to... More

Thank you for drawing the matter of binoculars to our attention. We did issue binoculars but found that it was impractical on an open boat. I have amended the website accordingly. We mentioned a 'bird recognition guide' which is a book of photos of local seabirds. We don't claim to have a bird expert aboard, just knowledgeable guides who try... More

Delighted you enjoyed our caves trip. It does require a lot of skill and we can only do it when the tide's just right. Hospitality and punctuality are very important to us More

Booked on the "Puffin Patrol", and the name was quite correct. Loads of the little darlings, coupled with a fun trip out and back. Highly recommended.
