Excellent tour. Knowledgable and friendly captain and guide. We had a great viewing of both a pod of dusky and common dolphins. The walk to the top of the hill was interesting and the views nice. Weather wasn't great, but no one can be blamed for that!!!

I did both the dolphin half day cruise and rented an electric moped. Can’t recommend these guys enough. The group for dolphin cruise was small and personal not packed up to nines like a few I saw leave harbour and the staff were friendly and passionate about their work along
