Thanks. Glad you enjoyed the caves and the fun. As you say, dolphins aren't guaranteed but we have had quite a few sightings of late and it's always breathtaking.

Having tried on past holidays to book this it was a case of third time lucky. The previous two bookings were cancelled due to the weather (obviously nobody's fault). It was well worth the wait, the crew were really friendly and the trip was great...More

We are very lucky to have very friendly and knowledgeable crews. Of course there's nothing we can do about the weather and we'd rather cancel than give you a miserable trip. Glad you made it in the end!

We went on the Herm explorer and had an amazing time! Well worth the money. Such an amazing experience when they power the rib out of the harbour and who doesn't love a couple of donuts! Plus we got to see seals! Sadly no puffins...More

Thank you. I'm afraid the puffins can sometimes be a bit shy but great that you saw the seals. Juggling with schedules when the weather turns bad can be challenging but we always try to find suitable alternatives rather than give you a miserable or...More

We did the seals and puffins one day and the caves the following day. Brought trips were great fun. The staff were brilliant and I'm still amazed at the amazingly small caves we were manoeuvred into to.More
