This was a great day out over to the Isle of May - a wonderful experience to go exploring and witness close-hand puffins, gulls and arctic terns. Good information both from the crew and on the Island itself.

People might think £25 is expensive, but it really isn't for what you see and do. It is worth every penny. We were on a lunchtime sailing and had good weather, so we got to go round each side of the island before and after landing. The island itself is amazing, with all kinds of sea birds up close.

I decided to pre-book this online rather than risk the long drive only to find the boat was fully booked, especially it being a Saturday! It's not a cheap trip but boy is it worth it. The crew were friendly and welcoming and I commend them on this because there must be days when the job tests even the cheeriest... More

First of all the address is wrong. 21 St Adrians Place is just a normal house, the ticket office is just in front of the The Scottish Fisheries Museum near the RNLI Anstruther Lifeboat Station. The ride is decent and the island itself is simply amazing.

We went as a family group of six adults. We were lucky with a calm crossing and warm sunny weather while on the Island. We saw THOUSANDS of puffins and lots of other birds too. The crew were really friendly and made the trip good fun from start to finish. It was excellent for serious birdwatchers and photographers as well... More

I have nothing but praise to give for this experience. Firstly, the boat grew were very friendly and with an excellent sense of humour. They entertained us during the 45min ride to the island with information about the wildlife in the area and pointed out interesting things as we went. Secondly, while many people go to the island for the... More

We visited the island again this year on sunday 5th July. This is an amazing trip to May island where during the height of the breeding season, over 200,000 seabirds of 14 species nest on the island, including puffins, black-legged kittiwakes, razorbills, guillemots, shags, fulmars, oystercatchers, eider ducks, and various species of tern and gull. The trip lasts about 4... More
