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.
