There was a powerful tidal race around between the shore and Godreavy Island and large swells on the outer route around the lighthouse. We saw a total of 6 Sunfish on the journey and a pod of around 20 Bottlenose dolphins.
One word of warning. If you do go on a one way trip, be sure to take the keys of the car that will get you back to the start. I did not! Duh. Fortunately one very kind person helped us out which somewhat dissipated my embarrassment. Lesson learnt!
