From meeting point to boat

Your guide will escort you to the boat. This is usually a short 5 minute walk. Sometimes, depending on the tide, you may need to walk 10 or more minuets to departing location. 

Arriving onboard

Your guide will brief you on the trip and safety as we leave the harbour.

For your comfort

We have 4 twin bench seats at the back and 4 jockey seats at the front of our spacious deck layout. This combination gives comfort while retaining the ability to move around the boat to get a better look at the wildlife. The jockey seats give the front passengers extra support as the boat rides over the waves. 

Each passenger has an area by their feet to keep their belongings out of the spray (30l).
