The manager did refund our fish and chips so they did what they could but what a disappointment. We ordered calamari, Caesar salad, mussels and fish and chips and wouldn't come back for any of it. Fantastic view, good house ale.More

The staff and crew were friendly and informative. It was a beautiful but windy day to be out on the water. It was disappointing as we mostly saw no marine life.....just one glimpse of a whale jumping. But they gave bread to feed the seagulls,...More

I would give this a 4 out of 5 for overall value. Price is a little steep for families with a tight income however if you are looking to do something entertaining and fun for the whole family (and have disposable income), look no further!...More

Great experience, fun for our young visitors, ages 7 and 2. Interesting information was provided which was age appropriate. Friendly staff. Sail could have been a bit longer considering the price of tickets. Fun experience, children enjoyed it.

Had an amazing time. My wife and I lived in the city for a few years now and this was our first time going on the hopper. We went on during The Hall ships festival and seen all the boats without having the crowd.

You should be able to get tickets when you are about to go on the tour. As stated in my review, this attraction DOES NOT provide a chance to see whales.
