Very knowledgeable skipper who was happy to answer questions. The one hour journey isn't very far but covers a lot of the feeding spots so it sounds like the chances of sightings is very good. We saw lots of dolphins and a baby seal. We had two toddlers and felt very safe in the boat with them. The COVID secure precautions were very sensible, and actually meant we had a private charter for just us which was lovely!

Very informative trip, excellent guide and saw Dolphins and other marine wildlife, from watching the other tours departing it looked as Dolphin Survey Boat Trips had much better Covid/ social distancing measures in place, would reccomend.

Brilliant trip... boat was extremely clean. Steven and Nettie were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and happy to answer any questions. Lucky enough to see one dolphin and the sunset was amazing. Very Covid conscious which is what’s needed during this unprecedented time. Would recommend to family and friends.

A brilliant trip just before twilight. Very knowledgable crew of the area, sealife and birdlife in the area. Open for questions throughout the trip. Dophins are not guaranteed but we were able to see several during the hour trip. The sunsetting on turning back to the harbour was amazing. An hour is sufficient time to get the experience and we would recommend this to anyone who is keen to experience the coastal treasures of the area. A highlight of the week!
