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

We had an evening trip with Kenny and Gemma on Friday 15th August 2014 and it was excellent. They were both so enthusiastic to share their obvious wealth of knowledge about the wildlife, the sea, the geology and the history of the area and it's people. We came off the boat with a far better understanding of the area than... More

I undertook the trip to Rona with my 2 children(9yrs) and had an excellent time. The boat is well maintained, the food amazing and the professionalism and knowledge of Gemma and Kenny helped make the trip. I would recommend this to anyone, well done Torridon Sea Tours.

An excellent boat which offers a range of trips for small groups. Very reasonably priced I think considering the small numbers on board. Kenny and Gemma are very knowledgable and great with kids. There is an underwater camera on board which I thought would be a bit of an unimpressive gimmick but actually this is a serious piece of kit... More
