We signed up for the whale watching tour while on holiday in the area and I have to say the whole experience was absolutely fantastic! The boat, the Sea Leopard II, is modern, spacious and safe and the crew were cheery, polite, professional, and very knowledgeable. Even if you never saw a living thing while out to sea, the scenery as you along is absolutely stunning. On our particular trip we didn't actually see any whales - oh well, I fully realise there are no guarantees and these creatures can't just appear on demand. To compensate though, we saw so many porpoises close-up that we didn't know where to look first! Amazing! Add to this, fantastic close-up views of a white-tailed sea eagle, as well as a magnificent osprey and its chick - again, as close-up as we could possibly get without causing them distress. Guillemots, gannets, puffins, shearwaters, cormorants, shags all made an appearance close-by too. Worth every penny, trust me, and I'll be back on board soon, I hope.

Thank you for your review and comments, sounds like you had a wonderful day, we have seen more puffins this year which is not the normal bird for our area, mother nature can do strange things sometimes.
Seeing a whale is always a bonus, Cassie the whale has been in our area this year but seems to be avoiding us up to now.
We are always on the look out and exchanging sightings with other boat operators in the area
Anything unusual or spectacular we post on our facebook page, once again thank you for taking a trip and we hope to see you again
