We enjoyed a day trip to St Simeon and return on this ferry, very friendly staff and good food served on board, washed down with a nice cold alcoholic drink. Only wildlife to be seen were some seals, unfortunately no whales today.

The ferry is a means of transportation. You may be lucky to see cetecean but don't count on it Get a ticket and pay the fare onboard during the crossing. Seating inside and out. Basic service.

On this ferry we saw Belugas, Humpbacks, Orcas, Dolphins and many others. A complete success by the captain. Yes it is cold, but with the view you almost forget. This was an amazing sightseeing adventure.
