It was really enjoyable! The pre-recorded audio guide was very interesting and added to the whole experience. We got to see many seals and even some little puffins as we accidentally timed our trip for when the puffins are in mating season. We were blessed with the weather, sat outside but obviously if you get cold make sure you are wrapped up warm as the wind can probably be a bit biting. There are some coffee shops nearby, as well as a shop/bar in the boat that served hot drinks. The public parking nearby is limited so if you are driving, make sure you get there early to ensure you get a space, as the public car park serves 2 boat companies and the restaurants nearby. All in all, it was a wonderful day out. Would recommend, and I would go again!

A great experience with opportunities to see seals, cormorants and puffins as well as spectacular views of all three bridges. No need to exchange voucher as described. Trip only slightly let down by the recorded commentary that was repeated in a few places

Efficient, easy, friendly, informative. Everything one could wish for. I appreciated the efforts of the captain , to turn the boat around slowly at times, permitting all passengers to view or photographs animals or points of interest

Excellent, could walk about the boat taking in all the views which were spectacular, also serve tea and coffee !!!

Lovely experience. Super friendly staff. Very interesting and beautiful sights. Made my deal to see seals
