We are visiting family in Sketty between March 26 & leave early on the morning of April 9th so would need to be between these dates. I realise you don't start until April and tours rely on the tides but do you have any idea of available trips between these dates as I prefer to book in advance prior to leaving Perth Australia. Also what is the cost as there will be two of us.
