Had a really good trip with these guys. We'd had a disappointing customer service experience with one of the other companies on the pier and decided to book a same-day tour with this company instead. Had a group of 6 girls and at the time of booking, were the only people signed up. Inquired if we could bring a bit... More

An excellent choice to view the wildlife and sea-life in this area. The owners are so knowledgeable and make the trip even more enjoyable. Very relaxing. Highly recommended.

My partner and I were so impressed by the pleasant helpful service we received from booking this trip until we left the boat. Richard was so pleasant and very informative and the whole trip was a wonderful experience. I would recommend Sealife Glass Bottom boat to anyone considering a boat trip - especially those with children. Thanks guys, loved it.... More

Great trip around Gairloch harbour, with young kids who really enjoyed it too. Richard's knowledge of marine life is clearly second to none, and his partner made us feel very welcome. Saw different examples of marine life on the seafloor, and basking seals on the adjacent rocks. Kids enjoyed taking turns steering the boat on the way back in towards... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip on the glass bottom boat . Richard was very informative and entertaining and next time we're in the area we will definitely do this again , we loved every minute of the 2 hour trip and the look on the kid's faces when they got to drive the boat was priceless

My 7 year old son loved our trip around the harbour in the glass bottomed boat, especially getting to steer. The skipper was very friendly and extremely informative. He also had a great way with the children on board - not patronising but not talking over their heads either. Highly recommended for inquisitive, observant children. :-D

This is such a wonderful experience for children & adults. The children are looked after so well & made to feel really important ~ our two got to steer the boat & our 7-year old daughter actually steered it into the harbour. The trip itself was enjoyable & Richard answered every single question we had for him whilst also pointing... More

A brilliant day out! Richard was an excellent host and was a very friendly and knowledgable guide. We all had a ball, especially the kids who were delighted to be given the opportunity to steer the boat. They will treasure their certificates!

Myself and a friend went on this boat trip and we both really enjoyed it. Richard and his wife are so friendly. We didn't see as much as I'd hoped however it was still a really enjoyable trip. Also on the boat were a couple of families and Richard was really good with the kids answering their questions and letting... More
