    The staff on the boat Polperro were fantastic - Extremely knowledgeable, friendly & approachable. One of the best things that amazed me they remembered everyone's name for the whole trip ... The only unfortunate thing was the Dolphins went hiding but saw some awesome fur seal action.... We'll be back :-)

    I think we should have been advised of the lack of parking near the pier. Luckily we had plenty of time spare but as it was a long weekend there was no parking for about a km from the pier. For people who were running late this would be a huge problem.
