    These guys delivered everything they promised and more...information, nature, and a life experience wrapped up in one....we were on the last trip of the season, and the enthusiasm was as though it was the first trip....and the bonus was 'wolfie', the skipper (a dog).

    It appears so if you go ahead and try to buy tickets for March. I would suggest contacting them directly if you want to be sure.

    There are regular guided tours of the village, with good history information by the opw. The walk around the island isn’t guided though, but once you stick to the paths you won’t have a problem.
