Whether you have a single or return ticket this open air train ride along the sea edge is such fun. The driver even drives into the shallow waters edge at times. I LOVED it....the kids will love it too. Dog friendly ....what a bonus

Our trip was a bit bouncy but enjoyable with considerate driver. At some times dependent upon conditions you can be at a little angle.

Reliable, considerate driver, perfect scenery, and driving through the shallows was quite exciting too. OK, the seats are a bit hard and not much room for old knees, but well worth the discomfort. A memory maker.
