"Top Trip. Completely wonderful. Perfect hosts (Fliss and John). Boat ride fun and not scary. Definitly needed the warm layers and provided waterproofs for the late Septmber trip. Bonus view of the 1930s Lydia May - a steam driven sidewinder trawler. Lots of seals. Camera with long range lens recommended for good pics. Plenty of curious seals came over to see us too. So peaceful while bobbling around in the ocean when the engine was off." - Carron J, TripAdvisor

"What a fabulous trip- we took our 78 year old uncle for his birthday treat and he loved it. It’s exciting but not frightening, fast but exhilarating,. We felt like royalty firing up the coast in such an awesome craft and the skipper, John made it very entertaining, as did the seals (slightly cuter than the skipper). Well worth every penny and one for the bank of memories." - Ianto B, TripAdvisor
