This trip was great value. We almost immediately saw dolphins and soon after, the pilot whales. We were given lots of information (in at least 3 languages). I recommend sitting at the top of the Travellin Lady, to the left of the captain. We could see everything as soon as he spotted it

The friendliest boat staff I’ve experienced on a tour. Safety and hygiene minded. We saw pilot whales, dolphins, and even spotted a right whale. Family friendly. A great value for a family outting.

Lovely captain and crew. Recommended for children, they will be fascinated. They could make discounts for families or groups.

It was a very successful morning and they really made the effort to make us happy

Incredible!! We saw many dolphins and pilot whales from the boat
