What an unbelievable trip - went on the offshore whale and dolphin trip and it delivered! On the way out we were inundated with porpoises before being greeted by Grassholm with 80,000 gannets perched on it. The view was breathtaking. After that we went further...More

We took a 6 pm trip around Ramsey and were lucky to see porpoises, puffins, shearwaters, guillemots, fulmars, kittiwakes, razorbills, chuffs and oyster catchers. The commentary was well informed and entertaining. The skippering skills were faultless and it was altogether a very well run trip....More

Went with friends young and old on a mesmerising and exhilarating tour with Falcon Boats round Ramsey Island. Wonderful contrast of dark caves with jellyfish and seals, then bright cliffs alive with unusual seabirds. We were expertly introduced to the extraordinarily arduous lives of these...More
