This was a truly magical experience
Toni Rynne 4 months ago

This was a truly magical experience. The cliffs themselves are amazing and it was cool to see seals up close, but the best part occurred on our way back to land when our amazing captain took us a little bit out to sea because he had spotted something. In the end, we saw over 300 albatrosses and I couldn't even begin to count the dolphins that jumped along beside us. Brilliant! The actual cliffs were pretty amazing and it was cool to see seals up close, but what made this trip so great was that our captain spotted something a little away from the mainland. He steered us to an amazing display of 300+ albatrosses ducking and diving. Then over 50 dolphins put on a show for us. They were jumping right next to the boat. It was fantastic.

The whole experience was well organised
David Ma 1 year ago

The whole experience was well organised, it was fun. During the tour, I was able to see a lot of stunning landscapes and different types of wild animals, both under and above the seal, including dolphins and seals. I would recommend others to join this tour.
