Well worth getting up early for! The staff were so enthusiastic and full of interesting facts and information. Going on the early trip was made better by the fact we were the only boat on the Sound at the time so it was peaceful.

It was a very nice cruise but we did do a kayak trip the day before and nothing was going to beat that!

Small boat than Real Journeys, well organised, a bit cheaper per person. Everything went without any problems.
