The afternoon boat trip was brilliant! Hardly had we set sail when we were looking at young sea eagles and at the same time had our first sighting of a porpoise. The scenery was magnificent and an added bonus was the beautiful weather. The boat is immaculate and Gemma and her dad make such an effort to make everyone on... More

The boat trip was excellent and the owners really looked after us. Very reasonable prices as well. We were made very welcome on the boat and given a lovely mug of tea and home baked rock cakes.

This family run business have something special. They are extremely professional and yet so friendly and welcoming from the outset. We took an afternoon tour to see the seals just outside Shielding Island and were extremely impressed. Gemma has a genuine love of wildlife and was very knowledgable on all that was asked of her. Kenny had a laminated set... More

We did an evening cruise which included some canapes and a glass or two of wine. The boat is spotless and for anyone that is nervous of going aboard smallish vessels, it is the most stable boat of this size I've ever been on. You should have no fear of getting sea sick aboard the Seaflower. In fact the boat... More

This was probably the highlight of our week in the Applecross peninsula. The Seaflower is a very modern boat, carrying around 12 passengers per trip and sails from Sheildaig. The Seaflower can accommodate passengers inside and out The two crew members, father and daughter are friendly, knowledgeable about the area and so helpful. We had two young babies with us... More

We took the morning tour on a lovely day and really enjoyed it. The captain and the mate were terrific. They told us a lot about the formation of the loch and the surrounding mountains, as well as the wildlife in the area. They went out of their way to find two eagles perched on trees on Shieldaig Island, as... More

Went on the day trip to Rona.Weather turned out to be glorious and we saw the sea eagles, seals and someone said they spotted dolphins/porpoises but never saw them ourselves. The boat is fantastic, there is an upper deck for the more adventurous and inside seating if the weather is bad and you are invited to sit in the 'passenger'... More
