Excellent trip, sunny dry day. Louise was lovely and the Dolphins amazing, got a glimpse of the Minke whale too, thanks for a great day. Would recommend to all x
Amazing view of dolphins
, Nov 2019
During my cruise we were able to see some whales from a distance as they were not interested in our boats at the time. However, being in a smaller boat we were able to move away from the larger boats and found a pod of about 30 dolphins. They were all very interested in our boat and swam very close to us for a long time. It was amazing to see. Even though the weather was perfect that day, we were provided waterproof coveralls so we could handle much colder and windy conditions.

Small Speed Boat Whale Watching Tour

What a thrill! We got to see whales, puffins, and dolphins that would swim by us almost the entire ride. The seats were very comfortable and even when hitting bigger waves, you never felt it due to the hydraulics of the seats. Even went on a cool joy ride after. Highly recommend! Our guide was thorough and fun!
Wildlife galore

We were very lucky to spot Minke whales, harbour porpoise, gannets, puffins, Manx shearwater ... Our guide (Mike) was very knowledgeable and a keen conservationist. Our trip was rounded off by a fast spin in the RIB. Brilliant fun.
Saw whales & puffins from far away
, Aug 2019
The service & equipment was good. We saw a few minke whales & dolphins from very far away. They came up too fast for me to capture any photos. Even seeing the puffins on the cliffs was too far away for me although I could zoom in my camera to take some pictures. I was kind of disappointed. May be I'm spoiled by my experience at the Galapagos islands which we could see all kinds of birds very very close.
So much fun!

We were glad that we chose this cruise. We saw many Minke whales & adorable Puffins. Even if we didn't get to see them, the boat ride was fun & thrilling, so we wouldn't have been too disappointed. The crew was very friendly & professional as well. We definitely recommend!!! :)

We had a very nice boat ride. Loved the RIB boat! Our tour was cancelled due to weather conditions and the staff worked to find another time the next day that worked for us. We unfortunately did not see whales, but did see North Atlantic Dolphins and puffins. Our guide was very nice and had lots of great information. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed a peaceful sea and wonderful pre-sunset. Highly recommend.

We LOVED this tour! The giudes were awesome and the boat ride was a blast. It's extremely cold so bundle up they provide warm items as well. We saw whales, porpoises and puffins. Definitely recommend!

The boat ride was fast and fun and we did see a few whales for a brief second surface. It is a lot of money to take a chance at a few seconds of spotting a whale but if you love fast boat rides and have never been on the ocean this is a great trip. They tried very hard to get a whale sighting. You never do get to see the back fin or them jumping up in the air. That's probably at SeaWorld!
