The chosen route will
depend on the sea conditions of the day. Wherever you go your skipper
will choose the most gorgeous, scenic, photographic locations and
route available, along the way he will point out things of interest
and even tell you the names of his favourite grey seals.
A private family treat
or special occasion can be arranged with a tour around the islands
stopping off for lunch, tea or even a swim with seals, have the
boat to yourselves (with skipper) and go where you would like.
This can incorporate
a trip to the Bishop Rock Light House and then landing on St.Agnes
for collection later if you desire. A trip out to indulge yourselves
watching the seals, bring your wetsuits and swim in a sheltered
secluded spot the possibilities are endless.
