It was way to book but I want keen on needing to download the app. On arrival there staff were friendly. The skipper even made the safety briefing fun. The trip was great fun. My children and I both enjoyed it. I’d definitely recommend it.

Skipper, crew, food, boat & whales were excellent.

Enjoyed every minute of the day. The skipper was tops with her commentary & guiding of the boat. The young crew couldn’t do enough for us & the food was number one. I would not hesitate to recommend the trip to anyone.
