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

I have to say we really enjoyed this trip. Very, very welcoming. Blankets offered and Calum chatted happily with everyone. What a lovely guy he is! Also, he has a lot of knowledge of the area and told fun stories. He included the children which I thought was really nice. Even after our trip he offered my mother in law... More

Very welcoming, blankets provided, great patter and excellent value. Everyone was included in conversations and excellent information as tour progressed. Boat comfortable and hot drinks available if needed. Calum is a gem.

The crew are excellent. Very helpful with (much needed) blankets and happy to chat with the visitors. Captain Calum has lots of knowledge of the area shared with fun stories.

Like it says on the tin, see seals or you don't pay, no guarrantess but at the least you get a free boat ride- you can't and won't get fairer than that. We've been on a few seal trips with Callum, I haven't personally - not a good sailor (!), plenty of seals have been each time. Callum is a... More

I couldn't agree more with all of the other reviews! We loved this trip not just because of the seals but also due to the spectacular scenery and the great company. You can tell when somebody loves what they do and that really showed from the start. It was great fun and a really lovely atmosphere! It lasts about an... More

We saw seals! Not many due to the weather and time of year but we did! Calum and Douglas were excellent, funny guides happy to answer questions. And very exciting to see the actual inspiration for J.M. Barrie's "Island of Lost Boys." The drive to Plockton from Kyle was worth it alone! Highly recommend the seal tour!
