We thought this was going to be good but not this good! On arrival staff were welcoming and helpful, assisted us to get into our waterproofs and into the rib boat. Our on boat "guide" was informative and knowledgeable and as he is local to the area he had lots of anecdotes and was evidently passionate about the area, it's... More

We booked a trip after reading all of the great reviews and were more than happy with the experience! The skipper and the lady who run the trips are really lovely and helpful. It was especially refreshing to see the kind and inclusive way they helped a disabled gentleman into the boat where many others may have turned him away... More

We went on the 75-minute boat tour going North from Wick. We got a great view of Sinclair's Bay and our guide told us some really interesting stories about the sights we saw on the way. There was plenty of wildlife about - lots of birds and some seals. On the way back the boat sped up, which was great... More

We have had many a great trip on this boat. The family who run it are very safety conscious and knowledgeable of the area. The trip is excellent value for money. The length of the trip depends on the route they are doing.

My first seacoast trip was along the south coast from wick. Amazing views of the cliffs and inside some of the caves. We got to see a lot of birds nesting and a couple of seals as well. The first boat tour was so good, I had to go for another one. This time it was along the north coast.... More

The Caithness seacoast is unbelievably beautiful - cliffs, beaches, skies you wouldn't believe! What a drive!

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
