      A great family boat trip and you get up close to the grey seals. The trip was about 1 hour 15 minutes and we seemed to get to the island very fast, overtaking a couple of other boats and we had around 15 minutes of watching time.
      Just one warning that we did get a little damp from the spray of the boat, but on a hot day that didn’t matter.
      Highly recommend this as an outing.
