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.

Booked the boat trip on the recommendation of a friend who is from Arranmore and it was absolutely amazing. Jim was such a friendly tour guide, his knowledge of the island and its incredible history was fantastic. Such an amazing personality who made you feel welcomed. We even got to see some dolphins. Would recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys amazing days out. 100/10 😊

Had a great time, Jim was great, friendly and tentative, the whole trip was very informative as well as scenic. Made a massive plus that the weather was on our side and got to see all the dolphins too. 10/10

Myself and a few friends decided to book the sea safari tour when visiting Arranmore and it did not disappoint! Jim was so friendly and knowledgable and it was amazing to see the island from a different perspective. The views were stunning and we were even lucky enough to see dolphins! It was by far the highlight of our trip and we’ll be sure to book onto this again when we visit next!

I took my friends over from the UK to visit my home of Arranmore this summer and booked onto a Sea safari trip with Jim onboard Elsie Jayne. He gave us a history tour of the surrounding islands as well as showing us the beautiful island of Arranmore by sea! As an islander myself I was amazed to learn new facts about my home town that I hadn’t heard before. Unreal scenery and Jim spotted dolphins during our trip and took us right up close to them which made the trip extra special! Wonderful day out and would recommend it to anyone who is visiting Arranmore or the Burtonport area!!

The best boat trip I've ever been on! Jim was absolutely incredible and so knowledgeable about all of the history of the islands. Plus he even stopped off so we could enjoy the dolphins dipping in and out of the water around us. 10/10 experience, couldn't recommend it enough! Thank you again, Jim!

Myself and 7 friends did the history and sightseeing tour with Jim and it was a fantastic day out. The best thing we’ve done on the island! Jim was so knowledgeable and cracked a few jokes too which made for such a pleasant experience. Thank you Jim!

Contacted the Owner (Jim) a month in advance to book a fishing trip, agreed a date and if weather permitting it would proceed. Met him on the agreed date and time to go on our fishing trip and Jim advised as only our party of 5 had booked he cancelled the trip. Would of been nice if he had given us forewarning as we could of made other arrangements but he just bumped us at the last minute. Speaking to locals the same day, they said they had heard of similar things happening with this operator.

Hi Liam, While some of your review is correct, You did contact me approx 1 month in advance through messenger and I did respond that there would be Fishing and Sea Safari's on during the festival, On the day in question Wednesday the 26th July,The Fishing trip was cancelled due to poor weather ie, strong winds and heavy rain and not that there was only 5 of you in your group, there were others for the trip also that I was able to phone in advance, you at no time provided me with phone number or email, I tried to contact you through messenger but no avail, It's a pity you didn't mention the status of the weather in your review, Other events in the Port were cancelled or relocated indoors due to the weather,

Jim gave us an amazing boat tour around Arranmore Island! He was so knowledgeable about the history of the fishing community on Arranmore and the surrounding islands. In addition, he shared information about the various types of rock formations, jelly fish, birds, caves, diving, people, culture, and geography, all done with an incredible sense of humor. Jim even went out of his way to show me a personal connection to Arranmore on my visit. This was one the best tours we have ever been on: so worth it! - Marc & Krista DeRidder

We had a wonderful trip with Jim on a lovely Sunday afternoon, exploring the island by boat and learning about its history and natural habitats. Jim had a great way of explaining this to the group and would strongly recommend it to anyone visiting the island to ensure you see Arranmore from a different perspective and appreciate it even more.
