Fantastic trip from Wick down to Whaligoe Steps. Learned more about the local history, geography, geology and local bird life in that hour and a half than I ever learned at Thurso High. William was a very knowledgeable guide. If you are visiting Caithness or a local - just do it!!

We enjoyed a wonderful walk along the quay and coast road. The old net sheds are colorful. Down the way, you hit Trinkie Pool; an old salt water pool on the edge of the sea. Watch the waves crash against the rocks as you take in the day.

i walked down toward wick harbour the wind bending me double, the rain lashing my face. there is something pleasant about walking in the rain, especially with full waterproofs on, which i had. i looked up at the cliffs nearby and was amazed by the way all the nests seem to be glued to the cliff.. the weather was turning...

We went out on this speed boat tour with just a couple of other people. The office/parking is right down in Wick harbour. We were glad we phoned ahead to check availability as it was four days before conditions were right to go out to sea. The trip lasted about 120 mins - with a really helpful guide telling us... More

We went for a 1.5 hour trip, and it was fantastic. The highlight of our holiday. The guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic, about fishing history, geology as well as sea wild life. The skilled skipper maneuvered the boat into caves & other nooks & crannies, I know this requires a complete & keen knowledge of the sea in the area.... More

Brilliant on a warm day for a picnic for all the family. The beaches are very clean and the area well maintained with excellent public facilities and eating places close to hand.

This was an excellent trip took our three kids age 15. 13 and 11 and from the off it was a laugh putting on the bright orange waterproofs and lifejackets getting in the rather (what I thought ) small boat and speeding out of the harbour up the Caithness Coast. The views were stunning the our guide was so knowledgeable... More

We went out in the afternoon last Saturday, it was an absolutely brilliant tri, William was so knowledgeable and fascinating, from Viking history to Caithness fishing history to all manner of wildlife, he spent the entire trip pointing out wildlife or points of interest and explaining in brilliant detail. I could have spent hours in the boat! The whole team... More

We called on Easter Sunday morning and were told there was only my wife and I looking to go that afternoon but no problem. They could do a reduced time sail. All waterproof clothing and life jackets provided. Beautiful scenery along the coast, stopping in at a few caves, and coves for plenty of photo opportunities. William's knowledge of the... More
