David and Charlotte were fantastic hosts. They really went the extra mile with hot drinks, binoculars and waterproofs. Very knowledgable. Wonderful trip. Saw sea eagle, porpoises, otters, jellyfish and seals. Well worth it.

Fantastic boat trip even if your unfortunate not to see the wild life that your hoping too. Its a pity that the wales, porpoise don't appear as we would like "on cue". David and Sara, where very informative, and tried to involve everyone. If you have, take your own binoculars you will find them very useful, although there are some... More

We, my girlfriend and her mother, booked on the 5 hour trip and it was simply breath taking. Now I am a wheelchair user and getting on and boat is a slightly daunting task, but the slip to the boat, although steep, was just fine for the wheelchair. David and Charlotte were both very helpful. I can transfer easily enough... More

David is caring for customers and passionate about wildlife. Charlotte kind and informative. Lou also very helpful. These guys are brilliant at what they do and makes you question your own job and career. This makes you want to provide people with this knowledge, enjoyment and visionary beauty. Thank you again. Money well spent. Dont consider, book.

A marvellous 5 hour trip off the beautiful west coast of Scotland spotting marine mammals and eagles - a real bonus that it was a warm sunny day! Exciting trip through the heart of the Corryvreckan whirlpool, but waterproofs are an essential accessory even when the sun is out and the Atlantic Ocean is calm. David and Charlotte (Marine Biologists)... More

A wonderful day out with David and Sarah! A wonderful, interesting and knowledgeable commentary. No whales unfortunately but lots of porpoises and sea birds including puffins! But the highlight of the day was seeing a pair of sea eagles. Close enough to be visible to the naked eye!! I never knew they were so big!! Almost pre historic in stature!!... More

Five hours seemed more like one. The information from David and Charlotte was great and the boat perfect for its purpose. All the things outwith their control were superb too. The sun shone, the wildlife had all read the script (well apart from the dolphins and otters who seemed to have developed camera shyness) but the sea eagles and porpoises... More

Brilliant trip yesterday. Was disappointed not to see any dolphins but seeing the whales was breath taking but that's nature for you and the commentary by David and Charlotte showed just how much they love their job! Sounded an expensive trip but was well worth every penny.

Wonderful experience taking a 5 hour marine wildlife boating adventure with David and Charlotte! They both knew so much about what we were seeing and were excited themselves at spotting wildlife. We were lucky to see the first minke whale of the season as well as seals, porpoises, wild goats and a sea eagle. The free cups of tea and... More
