We have stayed near beautiful St Ives for our summer holiday for the last 3 years. Although we have been on amazing trips to Seal Island regularly, this was our first time on Isla Bea and we weren't disappointed. The trip was incredible and the skipper stopped regularly to point out places of interest on the coastline and shared his knowledge of the wildlife. Seeing the seals in their natural habitat is always an incredible experience. All staff involved in the trip were cheerful,helpful and polite. Can highly recommend this trip if ever you are in the area.read more

We didn't think about going on a boat trip, but were told about it in the street and with 10 minutes to go before it set off, we decided to get on! We're glad we did as it was an excellent trip. Not only did you get to see some of the stunning British coastline, but the boat captain was very knowledgeable and we saw loads of seals, really close up! We also thought it was excellent value, as we were out at sea for about an hour! I'd definitely recommend giving it a go.read more

From start to finish was perfect. Booking was easy and informative. The boat was spacious and comfortable. Adam (the Skipper) and Dougy were very friendly and helpful. We saw plenty of seals, largely due to Dougy's ability to spot them very easily. The journey was smooth and enjoyable. We would definitely recommend this boat company.read more
