lovely calm water, harbour porpoise jumping out of the water, jelly fish swimming near the boat, minkie whales and humpback whales, Got plenty of pictures, just wish the 6foot plus people would be a little more considerate to children and more vertically challenged adults.
Breathtaking creatures…

From start to finish the trip was a very relaxed affair…. Having a two and a half year old we were a little nervous how he would be and we weren’t disappointed. The staff were all so friendly and welcoming, the boat (Andrea) gave plenty of comfy seating and a great vantage point inside to see anything, was a massive added bonus to be able to have a hot chocolate and waffles on the way out. Never believed we could be so lucky to see three humpbacks and they were in a very playful mood, as if this wasn’t enough already, we saw plenty of white beaked dolphins who w ere more than willing to pose for the cameras. Couldn’t recommend the trip highly enough.
Great short trip

Had a great time on this 3 hour tour. Saw a couple of humpback and several minke whales along with several dolphins. Crew was very informative on whales and other wild life and was quick to point out any sightings. Well worth the time. Dress warm!

The chance to see humpback and minke whales and the dolphins up so close was fabulous, recommend the tour to anyone, well guided by Iris. And watching the puffins fly by flapping their wings like crazy is excellent!

Most memorable seeing two Humpback Whales. We also saw a Minke Whale and Harbour Dolphins. Puffins were feeding we didn’t realise how small they are. The Captain and guides were extremely knowledgeable on marine life and the damage pollution is has caused. Would definitely go again

We were so lucky to see orcas and humpback whales! They explained how they try to find the best spots without using harmful methods such as radar, and the guide was educational and very passionate about the animals. The boat also has a small kitchen where instead of just having pre-packaged snacks, they can cook sandwiches and waffles, which also made the experience very cosy. Would recommend!

Well organised trip and we did manage to see two dolphins, a humpback whale and one Puffin. Shame it was raining, but there's nothing we can do about the weather. But the hot chocolate was excellent as a warming up drink.

It’s always blustery and freezing on the choppy Arctic waters but had a great time- managed to spot a pod of dolphins and a humpback… it was like an audience with an emperor in his kingdom…. The team knew where exactly to get the best experience. Much Recommended
