We really enjoyed our one-hour boat trip with Captain Nick. We had lots of time to snorkel around a small island and see lots of fish. We even held an octopus! Fully recommend it.

Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon out with Captain Nick and his ‘crazy’ sidekick, saw the goats and found all the things we expected in the sea including a very sticky young octopus. Have fun in Liverpool when you visit 😀

It was a fun 3.5 hours. It was really interesting. It also doesn’t matter if you don’t snorkel or even swim you will still enjoy this trip.
