The experience was fantastic! It's great to get up close and personal with the seals. Stuart was great at making you feel relaxed and he was very informative. You get a good amount of time in the water with the curious seals. I'd highly recommend, and I'd do it again!

Great trip and a great experience! The online check-in in advance is not necessary, but you should actually be there 30 minutes before the start to get a suitable wetsuit and fins. Valuables can be locked at the meeting point. During the tour we felt very safe and from our point of view we were able to snorkel with the seals for a long enough time.

The guides were super friendly and motivated. Unfortunately the weather wasn't ideal. It was very windy and cool, the waves were high and there were hardly any seals in the water. You couldn't see anything underwater because of the swirling water. The guides can’t do anything about that, but you should definitely check the weather when booking.
