Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Views were absolutely sensational. We had to stand at back of boat as there weren’t enough seats for everyone that is the only thing I was disappointed about as I couldn’t hear what captain was saying and I have a dodgy knee!

The barman was such a lovely man and even gave a complimentary drink for not having ice for my first drink! An absolute gent. Would 100% recommend doing this tour

Our family group of 4 adults and one 6 year old took this cruise on a busy Sunday. The crew were very friendly and efficient. We were lucky to have beautiful weather so we enjoyed wonderful views. The information about the locality and history was entertaining and informative. We would highly recommend this cruise when in Westport.

It doesn’t give me many options, and I end up, leaving a one star, but this was unavoidable by the company…
There was a completely full boat load of people waiting, and they could not repair the engine … very little information was given and it was very disappointing as we had had a 4 1/2 hour drive to do this cruise!
I do wonder if your charter doesn’t leave until 4 pm in the evening might it not be sensible to check the boat first thing in the morning and make sure everything is operating ?
Like I said, it was a very long journey, and even if there had have been an inkling that the trip wouldn’t go, I would’ve preferred to have been told .

Hi Traveler221818, I'm so sorry that your cruise did not go ahead as scheduled. At the time we couldn't diagnose the fault but in the end it was found that an electronic switch on the engine had stuck in the on position. This unfortunately meant that despite repeated attempts to start the ship just prior to departure, it would not start. Staff were of course on hand to apologise for the inconvenience and all passengers were fully refunded their bookings. I know this is little conciliation considering the distance travelled to get to us but unfortunately the nature of the fault ( whilst being only a 10 second fix ) was difficult to diagnose. This is the first time we've had a fault of this nature in our 12 years of operation. If we had know at the time was the fault was , we could have given more clarity to you. Once again we apologize for that. The vessel operated the previous day and was back in operation the next day once the fault was identified and rectified. We pride ourselves on ensuring a seamless experience for our customers and it's clear we fell short this time. We sincerely apologize and hope to have the opportunity to provide you with a memorable cruise experience in the future. All the best Tomas

All 10 family members thoroughly enjoyed the tour of this beautiful bay. Many of us appreciated the seating below deck. But some of us stayed up in the salty breeze for the full tour. Our guide was very informative as she shared the history of the area and was able to answer our many questions. I highly recommend this outing during a stay in Westport!
