Owner description: See all the highlights of this spectacular volcanic coastline in one hour including, two film locations from the 2nd Narnia movie Prince Caspian and world famous CATHEDRAL COVE. Explore spectacular sea caves and if dolphins take time out of their busy schedules to visit us in the bay, we have a marine mammal watch permit.When the tide is right you will visit an awesome blowhole and venture into a sea cave 80 feet high. Truly a magical place!

We went out on xmas eve with these guys as a bit of a present to each other, and had a great time every second of the trip. It was first thing in the morning when the water is usually calm, but it was unexpectedly really really choppy, so we laughed constantly as we bounced up and down with the waves. Although the coastline and islands we passed might not be spectacular (depending on your experience of spectacular coastlines) they looked great, and the commentary was insightful.

Be warned: as you're wading out to a boat offshore you're going to get wet (perhaps entirely drenched) before you even sit down. It's all good clean fun though!

70 bucks per person.
