Whale Watching

The whale watching season has started!  Join in the action with one of our whale watch  cruises which depart daily to search for humpback whales, seals and dolphins.  The skipper and crew on each boat will provide an interesting commentary on the whales and other local wildlife. To cater for all seagoing tastes, you can choose from a 1.5,  2.5 or 3 hour cruise duration.   All cruises offer free tea and coffee and a free return cruise, if no whales are sighted.

Whale Watching FAQs

Dolphin Watching

Don’t forget, dolphin watch cruises operate all year round.  You can enjoy an informative commentary from the skipper, as you cruise around the Bay for 1.5 hours, while keeping an eye out for our resident wild dolphins.  In addition, all cruises offer free tea and coffee and a free return cruise, if no dolphins are sighted.  

Dolphin Watching FAQ’s

Jet Skis

The water is still warm, so for those adrenaline junkies out there, you can still get your thrills, when you speed around the large designated jet ski area for thirty minutes, on one of our Yamaha VX1100’s.   Read more 

Quad Bikes

The quad bikes are so much fun, but they book out quickly, so in the off season, make sure you book at least one day in advance (especially at weekends) and during the holidays, at least two days in advance.  Don’t miss out on this experience, call us on 0249 843 843 to secure your spot.   See Quad Bike King for more info
