I thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. The staff were very friendly & helpful as well as looking after my mum when she suffered from sea sickness & checking on all passengers several times throughout the cruise to ensure nobody was feeling unwell. They were also very knowledgable regarding the surroundings & the history of the area & its inhabitants. I would do this cruise again. I loved it.

We had a very enjoyable time on this cruise. It was amazing seeing all the seals up close. We would definitely do it again. Thank you.

I went on this cruise with my partner and 3 year old. All of the staff on the boat were lovely and afternoon tea (cake, fruit, biscuits, tea & coffee) was provided. The trip over to seal rocks was quite rough so if you suffer from sea sickness (like me) make sure you take some preventatives. The gorgeous seals come right up to the boat and there are thousands of them. A great cruise if the motion sickness doesn't kick in.
