...David and Charlette did a really great job and took us to a really great trip out. Of course it's wildlife and you can't expect the animals to just show up because you're there now. But still, we saw alot of animals and everything was explained and showed to us. Thank you so much

Everything was perfect and very impressive, really. The boat trip was unforgettable, as a marine event in the first place. David has so much knowledge about this piece of nature that you'll get the idea you just entered inside a documentary, seeing otters, seals, red deer, porpoises, eagles, buzzards, wild goats with your own eyes within just a few hours

Dawn and I had an excellent trip with hosts David and Natalie yesterday. Their care and attention to us and the other seven passengers were first class, and our 4hr trip could not have been better. The boat is superb - clean, well maintained and perfect for the weather we had (a mixture of sun and rain). Tea, biscuits and... More

Had an afternoon trip with David and Natalie....had amazing views of otters, porpoises, goats and the like. What made the trip so great though was David and Natalie's friendly and knowledgeable approach. Even the biscuits are good.

Great trip and staff really helpful helping me on and off the boat. I wouldn't have been able to get on or off the boat without them. This sort of fabulous help to people who like me are disabled is so wonderful - thank you!

Took a 4 hour cruise and it had everything. We saw Otters, Sea Eagle, Red Deer, Porpoise, Feral Goats, Seals and Sea birds galore. Only thing missing was a Whale and a Goldie. David and Natalie were very friendly and welcoming, with knowledge of the wildlife and the area second to none. Suffice to say it was so enjoyable i... More
