We went on the hour ride around Hurn to see the Seals Puffins and may be dolphins. Sady we didn't see the dolpins but plenty of seals and puffins. The guys who run it are very nice and make you feel very welcome. Also its nice they give you some history about the sites that you see. Nice that they... More

Thank you for your comments. Glad you enjoyed our mix of eco-tour and thrills. We like everyone to get off with a smile on their face! Dolphins are an occasional treat but they're totally unpredictable. See you next time. More

We went on the Herm tour and had a fantastic time. The tour guide was friendly, punctual and knowledgeable and I'd definitely recommend the experience to anyone visiting Guernsey- provided you don't mind getting a little windswept!

Thank you Eve. Glad you enjoyed it. The 'windswept' bit is all part of the fun. With the puffins having just arrived and the seals active it's a great time to be out there. More

We booked this trip via P&O Cruises as this was a port stop on a recent 6 night med cruise. Excursions booked this way are always more expensive due to the cruise lines mark up, but this is offset by the certainty of knowing that any issues will be dealt with by the cruise line (inclement weather, running late etc)....

Glad you had a great trip. We do a lot of work for visiting cruise liners and inevitably they will mark up our prices substantially. It's possible to book direct with us but often we will have all our boats tied up with cruise liners on that day. More

Just had the most amazing, thrilling ride, over to Sark to see the caves with Dan and Laura on their rib. There were 12 on it. The rib is extremely safe. Dan showed us his skills behind, steering and using the throttle to show us a few 'doughnuts'!! Navigating into and out of the caves was quite awesome. Laura gave... More

We did two rib trips this summer and loved them both. We were not organized enough to book the puffin viewing trip at the height of the season. They all took off a few days before the weekend we finally booked and we were given the option of either a refund or an alternative trip...which was very nice. We did... More

Did the Sark coast and cave experience. Great fun and thoroughly recommended. The guide was very informative and the boat operator very skilled to get us into the caves below the Sark cliffs. Great value for money.

Did the Herm tour with my husband and 3 kids and we all thoroughly enjoyed our trip!
