We had a wonderful experience out today on the Harbour Cruise. A spontaneous decision with our large family group to jump on board resulted in a once-in-a-lifetime interaction with a large pod of dolphins. We were buzzing!!!! The boat was great, the skipper Brendan was knowledgeable, fun, and engaging, and we all had an unforgettable day. Thank you Kewpie Tours, it was amazing and we would thoroughly recommend this trip!!! You never know - it could be your lucky day too :-)

Turned up just as boat was about to leave. Last minute decision to take the cruise. Very happy we did as Dave was so welcoming and informative. Boat is small but comfortable. One hour is the perfect length of time for such a cruise. Good value for the price.

We booked a harbour cruise from the UK a year in advance. On the day of our cruise we found a notice on the harbour to say the trips were cancelled. We found out from Tourist Information that they had taken on a block booking and cancelled everything else. They did not email or telephone and have not responded to requests for a refund. Thoroughly unacceptable.
