A splendid way to pass 90 mins! The boat is functional with adequate facilities but the staff are helpful and obliging. The stars are the wildlife and the fantastic bridges. Well worth it

I went there with a group of friends, we took the bus route from the city, took the boat and descended to the island. Really amazing to see the seals and visiting the ruins of the old abbey. Totally recommended!
