“A Fantastic Trip”
Review of Orca Sea Safaris

Orca Sea Safaris
Ranked #10 of 29 Tours in Falmouth
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This trip made my summer, I could not stop smiling all day. It was exhilarating to be on the RIB, and the Captain took us out to try and see wildlife, he gave a very interesting commentary. It would still have been fantastic if we had not seen Dolphins, but we were lucky enough to be honoured, and the Captains skill in keeping us with them was much appreciated. I would highly recommend this attraction as a must whilst in Cornwall. Thank you to the lovely people at Orca Sea Safaris.

Friendly, professional and fun from start to finish. We were all provided with waterproof (and wind proof!) jackets and trousers and a life jacket before boarding. As we set out through the harbour, Steve gave us lots of information about the harbour, what we were passing, what was in the docks........all interesting and as an ex-local I still learnt a lot. But the real experience began further out to sea......we were shown gannets, cormorants, shags, had a glimpse of a porpoise but the seals evaded us. Further out though, we found ourselves in the middle of about 50 dolphins who swam and jumped alongside the boat. It was amazing, and Steve stayed out a bit longer so we could watch them for a while. The RIB went faster on the way back to the harbour which was great fun though you'll all end up with the same hairstyle! Well worth the money and good for all ages!

Organiser of the sea trip was very helpful and the sea trip itself was informative. Quite expensive, £39 each for 2 hours, which for 2 senior citizens was hard to find but if we had seen any orcas or dolphins would have been well worth it. Had to get dressed in waterproof trousers and coats, no very large size available so had to leave mine open, then you have to straddle a seat horse riding fashion. Saw a few shags and cormorants on leaving the harbour and possibly a sun fish. Saw a couple of dolphins in the far distance but apparently there had been a bad boat accident 6 weeks earlier involving 2 baby dolphins who got killed then the mother dolphin had died from shock, so were told the dolphins were avoiding boats at that time. It was disappointing not to see any orcas/dolphins/sharks which we had gone to see but it was an enjoyable sea trip just the same. As it was it was an expensive sea trip but had we seen them it would have been wonderful. Price of £39 also included admission to the museum.

Although it was a warm day we were advised that it's cooler on the water & kitted out against mishap. We sailed on time & headed south while learning a little about the coastline & some of the wildlife.It was exciting to think we might see something amazing & we did. A pod of about forty dolphins who came really close and played around the boat for a good while. Wouldn't have wanted to miss it for anything!
