We went on a 2 hour seal trip which was just magnificent; there were so many young seals frolicking and playing in the water. Incredible to see. Staff on the boat were very friendly and informative. Definitely worth it.

When I went off the boat, I was demolished due to the captain that took 2 big waves. He wasted my holidays because I can’t move anymore due to bruises.

We had a great time water was a little choppy which made it more fun. We got to view hundreds of seals at seal rock. A bit of jet boating fun on the return trip. Highly recommended and informative. Thanks

The third time we have done this. Weather conditions different each time and this make for a different experience each time. Staff consistently attentive, enthusiastic and informative. Plenty of appropriate food. A great snorkel in Refuge Cove to end the day. Thanks. K&BNoy.

If it's too choppy and windy they cancel the trip. I think that if your children are adventurous and don't mind being buffeted around a bit they will like it. In June it would be very chilly, so wear appropriate gear!
