See all the highlights of this spectacular volcanic coastline in one hour including, two film locations from the 2nd Narnia movie Prince Caspian and world famous CATHEDRAL COVE. Explore spectacular sea caves and if dolphins take time out of their busy schedules to visit us in the bay, we have a marine mammal watch permit.When the tide is right you will visit an awesome blowhole and venture into a sea cave 80 feet high. Truly a magical place!

An hour long boat trip to the main sites. Try and plan your trip for two hours either side of high tide - so you get to visit the blowhole ! Amazing ...... The boat can only get inside when there is enough water .......More
