What a fabulous experience! We sailed to the Isle of May on a lovely sunny day, but the sea was still in a bit of a 'swell' from recent high winds. The crew were excellent, giving us confidence in the 'high seas' and coping with poorly passengers. At no time did I feel insecure despite the pitching and rolling and... More

We've lived here all our life and never visited the May Island. I got such a shock. First of all your well looked after on the boat by the crew and from a non land lover that's a comfort. You land at the island in about an hour and get 3 on the island. There is so much wildlife and... More

We booked the trip to the Isle of May. The staff was helpful, friendly and professional. We went a little late in the season and thus missed a couple of bird species on the island. We did get to see some Puffins which was our main objective. The Isle of May is worth visiting for every person in the area.

The trip and the island are fantastic. Sadly our trip was too late for the puffins (first day they said that no one had seen one), but a beautiful island anyway. Staff are helpful and entertaining. A great day out.

We went on the boat trip yesterday and it was fantastic! Friendly crew, good facilities on board and attentive when a couple of our party were sea sick! We were lucky enough to see Puffins on the Isle of May, just coming up to the end of the breeding season. Could have spent much longer on the island and we... More

From the moment we got on the boat, the crew were excellent, funny, informative and above all professional. There is hot and cold drinks, and food on board. There is nothing on the island, so if you don't have a packed lunch, the boat is your only option. The island is amazing with the variety of seabirds, there were puflings... More

At first we were a little hesitant about the price but believe me the £25 pp is so worth it for an amazing day on the island. All the information you need is given to you and they even give everyone a map on the boat. The island is great and if you don't stop loads you can easily walk... More
