We had a wonderful 2 hours on the sea safari, there are loads of notice boards by the harbour with different trips but this time of year there are not many trips that go out so its best to just ring the contact number on...More
Skipper was very informative and is involved in sea conservation.
He's particularly concerned about plastic waste and chemicals effecting the sea marine eco system and encouraged people to think about recycling and using more environmentally freindly products like soap and washing liquid.
Thats the serious...More
We went on a sunset safari which we booked a few hours beforehand. The price was very reasonable. The boat was great and the captain very interesting,with stories about the history of the area and knowledge of local wildlife. He spotted dolphins from a mile...More
Clearly, with sea safaris and the like you're dealing with the luck of the draw when it comes to spotting wildlife, so we were very grateful when we got lucky last week! My boyfriend had found this company when planning our break away and had...More
Did a last min booking on the sunset seal safari 25/09/18 (5pm-7pm) absolutely fantastic! We went on the Atlantic Diver, the skipper was awesome- clearly very passionate and very knowledgeable about wildlife! Saw loads of grey seals and even got an unexpected treat with a...More

Hi Laura .. it’s a great question , if only we all knew this :0) There is no schedule as tide times vary daily and prey species they follow and forage drift in and around bays at different times of day. I think this is what makes the encounter so incredible special when we do see them . The seals are around most of the time either in the Sea or hauled out so spotting well alongside crew and other passengers maximises chance of spotting them . Whatever comes along it’s a great day out in a rugged wild environment which just can’t be beaten . Fingers crossed the wildlife are actively feeding on your day. We look forward to welcoming you on board
Best wishes Chris/Skipper

Hi and thanks for your question. Our boat is large with safety railings and has a seated indoor wheelhouse as well as out on deck seats so if she gets chilly she can take shelter from wind or sun and still see out through windows. It’s a catamaran so more stable than single hulled vessels so more family friendly. We have a toilet at deck level and safety railings all around boat so she’s not legally required to wear a life jacket but we do carry some fun finding nemo children’s life jackets if you wish and feel happier with her wearing one .. please just ask the skipper:0)
There are a choice of two hour trips and I’m guessing it’s the Seal Cove Safari you are thinking about which is great for children as it doesn’t stop too often so a changing active scenery keeps them interested. It can be a little like a car so if she travels well in a car then it’s likely she’ll have good Sea Legs but to be sure maybe leave it to book until nearer the time and pick a fair weather day for her first trip out. Our booking clerk would be happy to let you know most suitable day. Also if you have a pushchair the best steps to embark and disembark are south quay as there are less steps to negotiate so please advise clerk on booking. Deck is large enough to take wheelchair but you’re advised to apply brakes and stay with pushchair throughout. If it’s the Mackerel Fishing Trip I would advise you to help her with fishing as that might be a little harder for her .
Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any more questions
Happy holidays and maybe see you soon
