the gannet colony. For those holidaymakers who wish to be lazy and simply take it easy

swimming, and snorkelling.

like to have more available to you as part of a large group, contact us. We can then
organise the hiring and delivery to the Sounds Great Holiday home of your choice.
Costs will depend on the season, peak or off- peak, and on the number
of boats or kayaks you would need to hire. Sounds Great Holiday Homes would charge a
nominal fee for delivery and collection.
