    Staff couldn’t have been more helpful and informative. We saw 2 different kinds of dolphins including calves. We snorkelled with the seals and saw weedy sea dragons. We were also educated in a variety of bird life. An amazing day out.

    Can’t recommend this tour enough. Despite the cooler weather that day we were warm in our wet suits which definitely surprised me. The guides were great and had so much knowledge they wanted to share. The dolphins were beautiful but my favourite part was the seals by far. So funny and curious they come right up to you for a look!
