We were picked up by Lewis from St Mary’s in the morning on the RIB (rigid inflatable boat) which in itself was a fabulous adventure. Arrived on St Martins a little wind blown but very excited. There were 4 of us in our party 2 swimming with seals and 2 observing, we met up with another couple who were swimming with seals at the island. Back on the RIB and Anna and Lewis pointed out some lovely interesting sights before navigating to an area where they “thought” the seals might be. They were so right! You are completely at the mercy of the animals. They are not bribed with food or anything else. If they want to come, they come, if they don’t, hard luck. We were so lucky, the weather was amazing, the sea was calm, and the seals were playful. The swimmers had the most amazing experience interacting with these amazing animals. I can’t recommend this trip enough. One of our party was a little overwhelmed with wearing the heavy wet suit, but both Anna and Lewis were very patient and helped her to get the best out of the experience. This was a day none of us will ever forget!
