We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 hr voyage with Marine Discovery. From the warm welcome over the phone, followed up with the welcome on board, Hannah and Duncan do their best to make their guests feel at ease. We were delighted that, despite there only being two of us, they were still willing to go out looking for wildlife, and with no attempts to cut the voyage short either. We saw plenty of sea birds, but sadly no seals, dolphins or sharks, perhaps scared away by an orca reported in the area. However, the thing about looking for wildlife is that it is wild, and does not operate to human timetables.... if it did, it would be a zoo.... and it gives us another excuse to go sailing again some other time. Frankly, Marine Discovery is good value just for sailing at sea.
Pointers that might help others:
* Marine Discovery is a small business operating with the weather and wildlife, so cannot schedule departures long in advance. Phone to find out, and be flexible. If they are out of phone contact, leave a message.
* It's always colder at sea: wear layers.
* It's often sunnier at sea: use sun-screen.
* Enjoy what you see, rather than mourn for what you didn't.
