We took this trip last week while on holiday and really enjoyed it. Although the boat is a ferry to Eigg and Muck, if it spots something it will stop or even change direction to let you get a better view. We were lucky enough to see Minke Whales quite close to us, porpoise, seals and lots of sea birds.... More

Perhaps we were fooled by the website, or the words "Wildlife Island Cruises" on the front of the boat, but this is primarily a ferry service. We saw seals basking on rocks, but there were no detours, and no announcement either for them or for the Great Skua that flew low over the boat. Having said that, it was a... More

It was supposed to be a bike trip to Arisaig, but it turns out to be a nice cruise to Isle of Rum, with great skipper who was trying to find as much wild life as possible during our two hour ferry crossing from Arisaig. Isle of Rum was amazing, but sailing was exciting as well, as we can see... More

I was going to see an Isle of Rum, but the ferry wasn't just ferry, but cruise to look for wild life. It was so amazing. We saw only some dolphins and lot of seals, but it was very close look, because skipper made it sure we can see them from as close as it was possible to not disturb... More

What an experience! I set of from my home in Inverness at 7.30am when the weather was fine, travelled for over 3 hours only to be told the boat was not sail that day due bad weather. I can understand for safety reason for the boat not sailing but to have taken someone's mobile phone number when bookings months in... More

Had an amazing trip from Arisaig to the islands of Eigg and Muck, watching seals, dolphins, porpoises and too many whales to count. The skipper has been doing this for 30 years and is so enthusiastic you feel it is his first time seeing these wonderful creatures. He goes out of his way to find them and get really close... More

Arisaig is a lovely quaint and quiet place, it has a beach and a spar shop, post office, restaurant, hotel and information centre. The scenery is great and you can get a boat at the end of the small harbour that goes to two isles, im not sure exactly what ones but as there is not alot really to do... More

I booked a trip to Eigg for the two of us after enquiring about the nature of the cruise. It was implied that it was a wildlife cruise, and advertised as such. I was told that 'if the skipper spotted wildlife he would follow it and the schedule goes out of the window'. We picked up and paid for our... More
