From the start the captain engaged with everyone and made the whole trip entertaining and informative. We were lucky enough to see dolphins and the whole trip was amazing. Being at sea at a good speed is a great feeling. The kids even got to steer the boat which made their day.

Absolutely fabulous experience for all the family. We had a great time watching the dolphins then a great experience looking at the caves. Our guide was amazing giving us constant information about what we were seeing. They stopped to let us have a dip in the ocean which was a fantastic experience for all the family even the youngest 4 year old. Couldn’t fault the whole experience which was made all the better by the crew we had.

The trip is very good value for money and not to be forgotten. Thank you X Ride staff for such a pleasant evening xxx
