Went went on the boat trip during a stay in woolacombe it was very interesting and informative with stunning views . The beaches across the coastline were unspoilt and beautiful, and we even managed to see "Dave" the dolphin several times. Well worth the money. Book in advance as at peak times its very busy.

Good value at £12 pp for 1/half hour tour, the tour guide was very informative and we got to see a dolphin. Enjoyable.

We have been on holiday to North Devon for the past 3 years and made it part of the holiday to go on a boat trip this holiday we went twice. This time we managed to see 'Dave' the dolphin which was a lovely treat. We saw a sun fish a first for my other half. The coast line is stunning and we got into Watermouth bay. The skippers commentary was interesting and informative. The sea was a bit choppy but i just love the thrill to me it's like a ride at the fair.
The trips are wild life cruises and you MAY get to see seals, seabirds, porpoises or even a dolphin but don't be disappointed if you don't get to see any of the above as like all wild things they are unpredictable just like the sea, enjoy the scenery and the friendliness of the crew.
Thanks for making my holiday a little bit more relaxing hope to be joining you again next year.

We booked the day before and was glad we did as it was very busy!!!
Interesting commentary along the way .
My only gripe would be that because of the fascination with Dave The Dolphin ( yes he's lovely) we spent a long time just hanging around for a glimpse of him .

Went on this "Wild Life" trip. had been advised there were dolphins in the locale, wrong!!! The only dolphin (Dave) was on holiday, and we had to be content with 4 seals and half a dozen seagulls, but apart from this the trip was very informative and correctly priced.
