Had a fantastic trip tonight. Went on the Lynton tour with Sophie and Alex. Cannot thank them enough. They were extremely knowledgeable of the area. Great guides. They made everyone feel relaxed. Great safety brief to start with. Being local, this coastline is where I have grown up and live but to see it from the water was a great evening. Thank you Ilfracombe Sea Safari. Keep up the good work. Highly recommended trip.

Oh man this was amazing! Tour guide Jacob was very interesting and funny and Hannah drove us very fast and even did doughnuts with the boat! The views were spectacular and we were lucky to see some porpoises in the sea. Unforgettable.

Well worth the money. The staffwere professional and informative, giving us history, geography and wildlife lessons. We saw seals, porpoises and a bright green buoy. 1.5 hours of educating fun – the icing on the cake was how much our little boy loved it. They kindly let him look at the GPS and wear the captains hat. We'll done fellas 👍

Went on a dolphin safari with the family. Spent £49.50 per person and this gives you a great fast ride out to the dolphins jumping the waves which was great fun, this takes about 40 minutes . The 2nd boat found the dolphins so radio through to us to go to them. We were very close to the dolphins and it was brilliant. Spent about 30 minutes with them and then headed back on a fast ride. As the boat was running late heading off we didn't go until 18.25 so we were lucky coming back in the sunset. Then the driver did a couple of fun doughnuts. The whole journey took just under 2 hours. The only thing we were sad about was there were 13 of us and they said they could only take 12 on each boat so had to split up. The rib did seat 14 but it was less for a better ride.
