So I had the bright idea to go on the Sealife Safari. We saw one seal and a sunfish - look Mum, there's a dead fish, said my 8 year old daughter, LOL. I hate rides, but my kids and partner love them - this trip was like a ride that would rival anything Alton Towers had to offer. It was exhilirating (for them), scary (for me), but really worth it. Certainly made me feel alive!

Have been on thIs trip 3 times now and very different on each occasion. Particularly liked the trip tp Port Isaac. Dont worry if you dont see any wildlife, the scenery alone makes it worthwhile. Can get v bumpy , which adds to the sense of adventure. It will be always be on our holiday agenda ( although we would never desert the Jubilee Queen!)

An excellent trip, we saw seals and then went looking for dolphins. The skipper was very knowledgeable and we came across a pod of 30 dolphins with babies! The rib was very fast and we enjoyed every minute, worth every penny and the best thing we did on our holiday, thank you!

We have returned to do this trip again hoping to see one or two dolphins . The weather was kind to us , warm & still. On the way out we saw many of the local bays, we saw seals , cormorants and birds of prey! . Then all of a sudden we speed off out to sea, Ian our skipper said that we might see a dolphin - we did not see one or two, we saw well over 50 !!! We spent around 40 mins in their magnificent presence with the dolphins both swimming along side the boat & jumping next to us. There were several young dolphins with their parents too

This was the highlight of the whole holiday - everyone one on board were totally mesmarised
- especially the young girl from Yorkshire

Its always a gamble what you may see regards to wildlife, but on this occasion we saw the lot

A great boat trip which we highly recommend. No dolphins though which was a shame, but plenty of seals and other wildlife and a really lovely way to see this stunning coastline. Did the one hour seal experience during the day and the Port Isaac trip on a warm sunny evening - unforgetable! No safety issues with two small children as life jackets provided, but lots of fun too - our four year old actually said it was "better than Legoland"! Definitely going again when next in Padstow - thanks Ian!
