Booked for our family of four for a Sunday morning trip to Giant's causeway and was really disappointed when trip was cancelled at 11pm night before due to 'insufficient numbers'. Especially as weather was gorgeous and sea was calm. Nothing on website to indicate a minimum number required to run.

What a fantastic evening. This is THE way to experience the grandeur of the Causeway coast and the wildlife. Crawford and Pearl were relaxing and entertaining hosts, very focused on making sure their clients get the most from their trip. The Stromforce 11 is a fast and comfortable boat and makes short work of the trip to Rathlin. Crawford will... More

Having visited the sights in Portrush on land many times we thought it would be great to see it from a different perspective and decided to take a sea tour. The weather was fantastic and the views spectacular. Went from the harbour as far as port ballintray. The guide/ skipper Crawford was very pleasant and pointed out wildlife - sea... More

A trip we would gladly do again - bought for me as an unusual gift - but one which we both loved from start to finish. Crawford, the Skipper was the best of guides and his knowledge and enthusiasm, care and courtesy made us feel at ease straight away. The scenery was stunning, loads of descriptive detail from Crawford and... More

We went for the 4.5 hour tour to Rathlin Island on the 5th August - it was really good fun, very interesting and Crawford is such an excellent host. From the very first phone call to the last goodbye he was an absolute gent - all his knowledge was communicated with energy, skill and showed his genuine love and enthusiasm... More

We took the 4 1/2 hour boat trip that includes a stop on Rathlin Island as well as views of the Skerries, Carrick-a-rede bridge and Giant's Causeway. Excellent day - we were really looking forward to it from other reviews and it was a fabulous way to appreciate the beauty of the coast and Rathlin Island without crowds! The boat... More

I have done this tour twice within 2 years and both times was incredible. Interesting, enjoyable, friendly, just a fab experience and well worth the money. Crawford is wonderful and knowledgeable about the surroundings and despite having been around the north coast all of my life I learned new things on both trips! I would even go again. He was...

We did the Rathlin tour on Saturday 30th July. This was a brilliant experience all-round - I can't fault it in any way. Free parking in the harbour right beside the shop unit where you can pay for your trip and get tea/coffee before you leave. Crawford is a real gentleman - excellent commentary, thoughtful and kind. Safety features seem... More
