We had booked through Sea Harris, but unfortunately they had an unexpected breakdown and were out of action for a couple of days. We were so incredibly grateful that Seamus at Sea Harris arranged for his bookings to be transferred to Kilda Cruises for the day. (Apparently they tend to help each other out when these situations arise) Both businesses... More

Visited the stunning island of St Kilda with Kilda Cruises. Fantastic day out and we were lucky enough to have good weather. Boat crew were brilliant, funny, knowledgeable and put us all at ease for the two and half hour trip there. Island is a step back in time with sheer cliffs, imposing stacks and more sea birds than you... More

We really enjoyed our trip to St Kilda, even though it was "a bit rolley" on the way out, Angus our skipper and David were very friendly and did their best to look after everyone on the trip. We were on the Orca vessel it was a very nice boat, just a pity the weather wasn't a bit better we... More

if you're able to get to Leverburgh, South Harris get in touch with Kilda cruises (preferably well in advance) & go to the islands of St Kilda with them. it's a truly fantastic trip, everything you think it might be & more Kilda cruises will bend over backwards to make sure you get to go. they're very professional & have...

We arrived a little late due to sheep and tourists wandering along the road to Leverburgh so were last on the boat. The boat is really comfortable but that didn't stop me feeling a little rough on the way out to St. Kilda. As you approach the island you get amazing views of the stacks and Borereay. The weather started... More

This was undoubtedly one of the best experiences I've ever had. I am so glad I picked these guys, with good boats, really skilful, helpful and really instructive and safe. My wife and myself had talked about it but never thought we'd get there. A Must! and must use these guys Ron Coutts

My wife and I had booked this trip well in advance but knew it was very weather dependent so were prepared for disappointment. But, the day arrived and it was calm so we boarded the small but very comfortable boat at 7-30 am and we were off to St. Kilda. It was about two hours before we saw the craggy... More

Fulfilled a long held ambition with this great trip to St Kilda. Very knowledgeable and helpful captain and crew! Angus even introduced us to dogsitters Nick and Ann. Very well organised. Didn't manage to go the first day, but Angus kept in touch. Only possible improvement would be better weather and slightly smoother crossing!

Wonderful day trip to St Kilda with the knowledgeable Angus and David as our 'crew'. They were interesting, fun, attentive and nothing was too much trouble. St Kilda - peaceful and remote with plenty of time to explore and enjoy the island. Great opportunities for sea bird spotting as well as the chance to see basking sharks - just missed... More

From start to finish I can't fault the staff and equipment of Kilda Cruises. We had a memorable day, not just in St Kilda, but cruising round the stacks after, seeing whales and basking sharks as well as the nesting birds. Just great.
