If you are into sea angling or just going for pleasure trips around Mounts Bay this would be an ideal. The trips are ideal to see dolphins in and around the bay but also to see the mysterys that the Cornish coasts hold.

I took this trip last week on a sunny but chilly day, and the whole family loved it. Adrian the skipper was friendly and welcoming and pointed out points of interest all through the 2 hour trip. He's clearly very knowledgeable and his love of the area shows. The mermaid was comfortable and plenty big enough for everyone. We saw... More

Adrian and Chris did a great job - very attentive - we caught plenty of fish and even got a tiny bit of sympathy for our sickly friend which is more than we had!

Fab trip!!!!! Both very informative, funny and so passionate! We saw porpoise, gannets, dolphins and seals up close and took some amazing photos! If you went on the trip you would be extremely unlucky not to see the wildlife as they go out of there way to make sure you see as much as possible! The tannoy system could do... More

My wife and I went on this trip with our fingers crossed that we would see some dolphins as a similar trip in wales was disappointing, needless to say this trip was completely the opposite, after travelling out to the minack theatre area we saw a few porpoises, then as we set off back we were ambushed by a pod...
