Had a ball
Couldn't recommend this any more, everything was perfect!
A great adventure! Lots of fun for all!
Absolutely amazing experience I never thought I would get to do! Jess, Theo and Ben were so knowledgeable and willing to help out whatever you needed. They were fun and energetic and made the experience unforgettable! Perfect day, perfect swim.
Staff on the boat were exceptional in addressing their clients by name and taking care of every bodies needs.
We appreciate all Polperro crew for their generous information but what stands out is there hospitality and infectious friendliness. They make everyone comfortable and have a great fun. We don't want to end the trip. The dolphins and seals are amazing.
It was a fabulous day and experience! The dolphins came up so close to us. The staff were great and so knowledgeable. I would highly recommend it!
Amazing day, this was purchased for my partners kids as a Xmas present and the team that looked after us on t he day where simply incredible and I would highly recommend them.
The Polperro is an authentic, somewhat rustic, smaller boat than its competitor – there was no pretentious vibe to detract from a truly natural and unique experience. The snorkel equipment was excellent. I’d read on the internet how the staff were fantastic – well that’s sooooo true. Totally professional, calm and not at all patronising. The way they explained the safety and procedural stuff was clear and easy to follow. Ben & Theo were really supportive, understanding and perhaps anticipated my physical limitations. I don’t think the experience would have been so easy for me without their support and calming influence. They had my back and I felt safe at all times. The seals were fun to see and be around. In fact after seeing them I thought that even if the trip didn’t include a dolphin sighting I was already satisfied and happy. But then the dolphin encounter happened – WOW – that was something else. What was so special was that it felt like the dolphins came to swim with us – not we swim with them. The guys on board are so knowledgeable and respectful of these creatures – one can’t help but be in awe. Even so, words can’t describe the feeling. BIG THANK YOU.
Dolphins are wild animals and interactions cannot be guaranteed on every occasion. We use a multi-award winning eco tourism business that embraces sustainability principles.
Passenger safety and the dolphins' protection are of paramount importance, and so we purposely limit the size of our trips to guarantee a high standard of customer and environmental care. Our on-board facilities include a galley for serving refreshments, change areas and toilet. Wetsuits, masks and snorkels are all supplied. Reef and seal swims are often part of our trips so be prepared to see and experience much more than just dolphins.
Our season is from October to April inclusively, trips depart at 8:00am and 12:00pm daily. The boat trip will last approximately three (3) hours!
Numbers on the boat are strictly limited to make the experience more enjoyable.
