It was excellent. The boat was very comfortable, visibility obviously very high and the two crew members very friendly and knowledgeable. They knew the waters well and the burst of speed was fun.Lots of dolphins right by the boat and then lots of seals on the islands.Again a close up look at them.

we loved it ! funny & informative commentary. we loved seeing the dolphins so up close & seeing the seals on seal island. the ride back was fun with the boat going side to side & donuts in the water :)

this tour was a great way to tick off a few places off the list of things to see and a good way to judge if i want to go back and visit places for longer. the guide had great food recommendations.

The staff were informative, easy to talk to and really helpful! The experience was fantastic and we can’t wait to do it again! Also excellent value for money

Excellent experience. Enjoyed every second. Thank you
