When we phoned to book we were a little disappointed as the seal trip wasn't running due to the weather so we booked an hour long trip down the coast instead. It was worth arriving early for the tour as we had great seats upstairs on the boat. The trip commentary was interesting pointing out local landmarks, places of interest and giving a little history. We went down the coast to Coombe Martin, and then into Watermouth Harbour on the way back up. The highlight was when we saw the porpoises which boat slowed down for and circled so we could all spot them. We saw some fabulous scenery and took some beautiful photos as it was a fine day. Highly recommended, our girls aged 4and 7 sat still for the duration and enjoyed spotting things too!
