“Great trip giving close up views of numerous nesting sea bird types. Friendly crew.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

The boat is capable of taking up to 60 passengers and 2 crew. Trip time was a total of 1 hour and 25 minutes as the sea was a little choppy. It's about an 11km return trip to and around Puffin Island. Great fun for the kids at the front getting some (quite a bit actually) bow wave splash. Cost was £9 pr adult. The commentary was very informative on the views as we proceeded to the island. The boat slowly circulated the island as close as sea conditions allow to permit viewing of many types of sea birds nesting, preening in the sun or flying. The crew turned the boat frequently to ensure the passengers could see particular bird types, including puffins, and to highlight particular features of interest. A local group of seals provide some close up viewing as they bobbed lazily in the sea. Purpoises are also frequently seen.
The crew were very friendly and offered to show charts and navigation information to anyone interested during the return trip.
We really enjoyed it.

“Canceled the boat we wanted to go on”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

It looked like a nice trip and seemed like a reasonable price at 8 pounds per person, but they canceled the boat we were supposed to take out. Don't make a special trip out expecting the tour to go without calling first to confirm.

Hi,
We are sorry you were unable to take the trip on Cerismar Two. Sometimes we have to cancel due to the weather conditions or if we do not reach our minimum number of passengers. We do suggest to people who are travelling some distance to take the trip to give us a call before so we can let them know if the trip is going ahead.
Thanks for your review and once again we are sorry you could not take the trip.

“Fabulous trip and amazing wildlife”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2011

This trip was a great opportunity to see wildlife, we soon caught sight of porpoises, seals and puffins as well as countless other seabirds, and that was without binoculors. Our baby seemed to enjoy it although the young preschoolers on board soon fell asleep! The staff were great and informative. Probably not ideal if you have mobility problems though.
