My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The guides were really friendly and made the tour funny and informative which was great. We got to see some fantastic sights of the coastline and got to see lots of seals in their natural habitat. We sat in the middle of the boat and had great views, we also weren't too affected by any motion sickness. We also ate at the cafe afterwards (both had the smoked ham baguette) and we really enjoyed it. Would recommend this tour

Very lovely stuff that is extremely knowledgeable and helpful! I recommend taking a morning bus and going down the hill
