Due to a delayed ferry from the mainland we missed an early boat trip with another provider – and boy am I glad we did! When we arrived in Fionnphort we gave the number on their website a call and they managed to squeeze us on. From that moment I knew we were going to have a really good afternoon.... More

Staffa can be visited from a number of departure points, with several operators running frequent trips to see the natural wonders of the island. Some of these trips are combined with visits to Iona or the Treshnish Isles, but we opted for a Staffa-only trip from Ulva Ferry as this was very close to where we were staying on Mull.... More

Sad to say this is not our trip to Staffa. Staffa Trips sail from Fionnphort or Iona on MB Iolaire of Iona twice daily. However I know the trip you went on is also a great day out. You probably saw the brown wooden boat whilst you were on Staffa, that's us. More

Okay, so it's taken me over a year to write the review but this trip still fills me with amazing memories. A fantastic trip out to Staffa with a great humoured and knowledgable captain/crew. Plenty of time on the island as well to truly experience what an amazing place Staffa really is - awe-inspiring and truly magnificent. Good management -... More

We booked at the Visit Scotland centre at Craignure and got the bus at 8.35 to Fionnphort to meet the boat. The guide on the boat was brilliant- so knowledgable. The trip to Staffa was misty until we arrived. Fingal's cave was wonderful and we enjoyed seeing puffins too. From there we made our way to Iona- the coast was... More

We went on this boat trip (Staffa trip, on the Ionaire, leaving either Iona or Fionnphort-Mull) last week. I booked it by email (no depositi required, you can change your mind if the weather is not great or else) very easily. The people on the boat were very friendly and welcoming, telling us everything we had to watch (my parents,... More

An amazing experience to explore Staffa and Iona Islands. It takes a while to get there but it´s all worth it and everything is organized so you just go with the flow and enjoy the scenery :) We bought the tickets with Caledonian MacBrayne and had a wonderful day, Staffa Island looks like it comes out from another world but...

Dear Helene, Sorry again this is not our trip although it is a very good trip. Our bookings are handled by ourselves on Iona by phone, e-mail or by calling at the house on Iona. Sometimes local landlords are very good at phoning on your behalf too and this is a chance to say a big thank you to them.... More

We caught the boat to Staffa to see the Puffins and Fingal's Cave. We sat on the top of Staffa waiting for the Puffins to appear, and then they were flying near us in all directions, so cute. A walk to and then into Fingal's Cave was amazing. Highly recommend this trip!

Great day out watching the Puffins. The crew were outstanding and made our trip very enjoyable. We visited both the puffins and Fingals Cave. We had 2 hours with the puffins and an hour at finals cave. I would highly recommend this tour

This was the best sea trip I have ever taken. The crew were delightful and very helpful. We travelled on a catamarin out of Tobermory and visited Staffa and Lunga where we got to see the most amazing Puffin colony. Fingals Cave was incredible and our skip almost managed to get us into the cave by boaat. The crew were... More

Sad to say this is not our trip although it is a great day out. To sail with Iolaire from Fionnphort it would take 2 hours to drive down through the beautiful scenery of Mull to reach us. Some folk get up early and come for the 10am sailing, go out to Staffa and come back to see Iona in... More

As geologists we were really keen to go on this trip.........and we weren't disappointed! It helped having a very calm day - but David and his crew were friendly, made time for a chat with everyone and made you feel relaxed. Staffa is beautiful in it's own right and being a sunny warm day helped (yes - in April!), but... More
