We had the most amazing trip from Ballycastle to Rathlin Island onboard the beautiful Aquaholics V. Richard & Timmy made us feel very welcome and their knowledge of the local area made the trip very interesting indeed. We got up close to the seals, then into Church Bay for a quick coffee, before heading round to see the puffins. We... More

We saw the seals on Rathlin as well as the puffins! Sadly no dolphins .. maybe another time! Richard was very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife and answered all our... More

Richard from Aquaholics was extremely accommodating and set-up a personalized sea-fari for our family. We were on vacation from Canada and found this outing to be very safe and professional. We had a great time getting up close to seals lounging on the seaside on Rathlin Island, and viewing Puffins, and all sorts of other creatures. A wonderful way to... More

Went on a trip to Raithlin island. Richard have full instructions and a life jacket and we were off! It was quite choppy but we loved bouncing along the waves at a fair speed. He's very informative and pointed out all the different birds. The Dolphins eluded us but it's an excuse to go back! A great two hour trip... More

This is a trip worth taking no matter what time of the year, there is always something to see along the coast. Richard was excellent and very knowledgeable, keeping us informed throughout the whole journey. Anyone can take these boat tours, singles, couples, families and groups. Obviously the weather and time of year will dictate a lot of what you... More
