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.

This trip was one of the best days of our holiday. Seeing the dolphins swimming along the boat was amazing. Definitely a must whilst in Cornwall!
