We have three different general departure times for our tours. The general departure time will depend on the day that you choose to book-in and can be viewed when you check the availability. Your specific pick-up time will be confirmed once we know your preferred location (see above). General departure times are based around the high and low tides in order to ensure you will be learning during the optimal time for the day. General departure times are shown below:
