Outstanding service.

Unfortunately our vessel had to have repairs so the friendly team upgraded us to the four hour hole in the rock cruise which was beyond my expectations and would recommend doing both trips and the dolphin discovery as they are amazing. My partner had the best time ever and memories forever.

Brilliant 'quick' trip

We had a great trip out to the hole in the rock. We were pushed for time and hubby gets a little seasick, so this was the perfect trip for us. I was dubious at first when booking through Bookme as I had not heard of them before. I actually phoned the tour company direct to find out if it was legit and they confirmed it was. Great price and we were well looked after by the tour company. I would definintely use them again!

Weather was rough so unable to get to the hole in the rock, however the quid did her best to give us an enjoyable ride.
