We arrived for the last sailing of the day. Despite being the only two there, we were taken out for the wonderful tour. Seals spotted, incredible views, the train skirting the shore line all contributed to a great trip. The knowledge of Callum and his daughter was the icing on the cake. All in all, a fantastic trip that we'd... More

From minute one Captain Callum and hos daughter could not have been more welcoming! They looked after my 4 year olddaughter like a celeerily, letting her steer the boat and ring the bell. The tour itself was lovely and informative with amazing views and questions encouraged. We saw lots of seals that of course meant the trip wasn't free but... More

Fantastic tour around Loch Carron and spotted lots of wildlife. Callum is very informative and keeps everyone entertained with jokes and stories. He allowed a family with two young girls to, "drive" the boat making it fun and engaging for children too. You are given a blanket to keep you warm, it was definitely needed in October, so wrap up...

Around an hours trip around Loch Carton and we saw loads of seals....with Calum singing we're in the money! You only pay if you find any seals. An enjoyable trip with Calum keeping us entertained and the weather was also pleasant. Ideal for a family trip.

This was an excellent trip, a real adventure for children. Well worth the money seals and guided tour. Recommend that you take a waterproof if the weather changes suddenly if not there is a covered cabin with hot drinks available.

Late in the season and on the last trip of the day our party of four had a wonderful trip around the bay with personal attention and expert local knowledge from the owner and his daughter. Despite the rain we enjoyed every minute and found it very good value. This was our second visit, the first being 18years ago and... More

A very pleasant and informative boat trip early October around Loch Carron. Captain Callum kept us entertained and trip was highlighted by lovely view of seals basking. We took our 2 dogs with us who seemedto enjoy the trip as well. Good value for money, glad we made the trip.

We had a fine day for our one hour trip around Loch Carron. We saw many seals basking on the rocks and Calum guided the boat up close for the best photo opportunity. He gave interesting and amusing commentary and the scenery was superb especially the views out to the Isle of Skye as the sun was fading in the... More

Callum lived up to his promise and found us seals - lots of seals. I doubt he gives money back very often! We walked across the hills from Kyle, and caught the train back, so we didn't need transport.

Money back if you don't see any seals but doubt that ever happens! Callum has the gift of the gab. Pleasant afternoon sail.
