Fantastic trip. We were lucky enough to see Risso’s dolphins, some puffins and sunfish. What did I enjoy most? Steve did not approach the wildlife and left them to do their thing. This is so important for conserving our wildlife and so respectful of their...More

Lovely coastal views and interesting commentary on our 2 hour trip from Falmouth. We saw some seals but the highlight was the pod of dolphins which swam right beside the boat. A fantastic experience.

A great 2 hour trip with a great sighting of a large pod of 20 dolphins which swam around us for 20 mins or so. Very interesting commentary on the sights in and around Falmouth. A great morning.

They just said wear warm clothes. We had tshirt, jumper, jeans, Trainers & a rain coat. They gave you a proper wet weather coat & trousers. It was warm in Falmouth but when we got out in the sea it was colder.
