A great trip, it was cold but we were well wrapped up. Tom, our skipper, was really interesting and made sure we had a great experience. Well worth doing even on a cold February morning.

We booked a private trip for the family (2 adults and 3 children) for 1.5hr which was great value for money. Excellent communication from first enquiring over Facebook, to discussing over the phone. Really impressed with the flexibility too, as a few days before the weather changed and so we got to go a day earlier. Also with the weather... More

It is essential to wrap up warm, even on mild days, as the... More

We had a great trip with a fantastic captain. He got the right changes between speed and pauses. We saw lots of seals around puffin island.
