My wife and I have undertaken at least one trip a year with Callum over the past 14 years. He is very knowledgeable and always makes us feel most welcome, as do his colleagues. The trip is free if there are no seals, however the views particularly of the Applecross peninsula are worth the fare in their own right. There... More

We did calum's trip as part of our honeymoon and we were the only two on board - we had a private cruise. As promised we saw seals and the views were great! We had a great time and would recommend this trip, the staff were very friendly.

We saw all that we would have hoped to have seen, enjoyed a cup of coffee onboard and were entertained by Calum, the skipper. Overall, great value for money. A stellar way to spend an hour. Thanks Calum!

If you've got kids this cannot be faulted. Great staff, brilliant with kids (let them skipper the boat), beautiful scenery, good value. Top afternoon out.

We had been recommended to take a trip with Calum to see the seals and this turned out to be excellent advice. Calum is a real character, quick-witted and with a good sense of humour. The rest of the crew are equally easy going and friendly. We saw seals in their natural habitat and also had local landmarks and bits... More

The seal trips aboard the Sula Mhor with Callum are a must do. A very warm and friendly local character with matching humour. The views of the loch and surrounding area is wonderful.

We went up to Plockton for a day trip while on holiday and went out on the Sula Mhor with Callum, who made it a very special experience! The trip is supposed to last an hour, but on the way out we spotted an otter, so went over for a closer look, before heading off to the seals. Having seen... More
