A very enjoyable 40 minutes heading west almost to Irish Sea. Good informative commentary from the captain and free teas and coffee available if required. A good scene setter.

Great little trip, the running commentary was very informative, interesting and entertaining. Really good to see the Mussel trawlers at work. Good value for money.
