“Cruising with quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

This is an excellent sea tour with two very pleasant, knowledgeable and informative individuals in the father and daughter team of Kenny and Gemma. The weather was mainly sunny and and dry i the half day trip we went on. If wet, you can always shelter in this fabulous boat. if dry, sit out and enjoy the scenery. Half way into the trip, we were offered coffee (and it was ground not just the quick brew ) a homemade cupcake and later some homemade tablet. All very yummy. You get to visit a seal colony, we even saw some mountain wild goats and of course a while range of sea birds. At one point of the trip, Gemma and Kenny drop anchor and throw the underwater camera overboard and you have the opportunity of viewing life on the seabird - starfish, sea urchins etc,, This is a well run trip - no cheating on the quality of service or care - definitely would take another tour with Torridon Sea Tours - follow them on facebook!

“lively!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2011

Having sampled a gloriously calm and blue sky half day cruise in 2010, we set out on the full day trip to Rona this year. Only the weather disappointed although this made the trip across excitingly lively but very secure with the boat in the experienced hands of Kenny. The cloudy grey day made the surrounding hills look so atmospheric. The hospitality in the form of home-made cakes and seafood lunch served up by Gemma was delightful, and the excellent spirits on board were further boosted by a good wine. We're looking forward to an evening champagne cruise next year. Thank you so much, Kenny & Gemma, for giving us another memorable experience. Alan & Pat

“Spectacular trip,well worth the money, a must for visitors and locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

The trip to Rona was far beyond our expectations. Kenny and Gemma are so knowledgeable off the area and wildlife. The "Seaflower" is beautifully appointed with all the very latest equiptment. As for the hospitality it was like flying first class. Morning and afternoon refreshments plus the superb seafood lunch were beautifully presented and tasted just as good.

“Back for a second year ..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

Last month my family and I drove for 10 hours to get to a holiday house in Shieldaig for a week, with the hope that our efforts would be rewarded as well as they had been the previous year. We were not disappointed, and the highlight of our stay was a day trip with Torridon Sea Tours out to the Shiants. We were wonderfully well looked after on board the Seaflower (seafood lunch & wine in the bay) & spent a good hour watching minke whales and dolphins in the waters between the islands and the mainland.
Kenny and Gemma are the best of hosts - welcoming and informative - and always equipped with cake ! My children, aged between 8 and 19 all loved the experience and will be keen to return next year. I hope we will.

“Awesome experience coupled with thte warmest hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

Kenny and Gemma provided an exceptionally warm welcome for this great trip around the fantastic Loch Torridon. The scenery is amazing and we were lucky enough to see all sorts of wild-life including a Sea Eagle. The knowledge of our hosts was spot on and they helped us identify the various bird life that we saw.

The boat itself is extremely comfortable and we can highly recommend a visit up to the flying bridge for even better views. We were well looked after throughout the whole trip and were treated to the very best of Gemma's home baking.

All in all we cannot recommend this trip highly enough and are looking forward to a longer excursion when we go back in September.
