The excitement of the adrenalin rush, the drama of the cliff scenery and the awe of squeezing the boat into the caves all combine to make this a memorable trip. Glad you enjoyed it.

Really well organised, really friendly staff, felt totally safe. Great way to blow the cobwebs away, see some fantastic scenery and wildlife with a bit fun thrown in. Special and memorable way to spend a birthday thanks to all.

That's the thing about the sea - it's never the same twice and there's always something different to experience. When you get around to booking the right trip I'm sure you'll enjoy that too!

Interesting and fun sums it up. What appears to be a wild ride is completely safe and at no time are you out of balance or having to hang on. The worst that can happen is you get a bit wet!

Your concise review says it all. Children as young as three are thrilled by our RIB rides, as are adults in their eighties!
