Fabulous day out in sea bird breeding season. 42000 breeding pairs of puffins, arctic terns which attacked to protect their bestselling, wider ducks besting next to the paths, shave, razor bills and seals. What more could you ask for? 1 hour on the boat, was quite cosy as it was full, 3 hours on the island, and an hour back.... More

We could not have had a much better day for our trip on the May Princess - a good sized vessel with coffee bar and toilets once out to see. The weather was good the sea calm and the crew fantastic. It all made for an excellent day out. But .. the Island is the real star. Largely unspoilt and... More

What a treat. Beautiful weather to a truly stunning place. Such an unspoilt haven for wildlife. 3 hours on the island was barely enough The trip across was a pleasure, the crew were great guys and the Skipper gave us an informative chat throughout An absolute must

On a beautiful Spring day we took a trip with these guys to the Isle of May - hugely knowledgable on their subjects (The Sea, The Wildlife and the Island) nothing was too much trouble - can't wait to go again and spend a short time on the Magical Isle of May

We had an amazing day on the Isle of May. When I phoned to book they were very helpful and honest about the poor weather forecast! The gentleman on the phone took my number to call and inform me if the trip was cancelled before we left home. The breezy weather made for a choppy crossing but we were rewarded... More

I made this trip on Monday afternoon the twentieth of April, hoping to see puffins last seen on Skellig Michael in Co. Kerry. The puffins were mostly in their burrows, out to sea or on their way. But, after a briefing from caretaker Becca we were allowed to wander, keeping to any of many paths. The tranquility and solitude force... More

We had a wonderful day trip on the May Princess to the Isle of May. We booked the day before and collected our tickets on arrival at Anstruther, when we were also given maps and information leaflets about the island. We had picked a glorious day of calm seas and blue skies with virtually no wind, so the hour boat... More
