What a great experience this was and so informative. As a local it was wonderful to see the land from the sea, with all its rock formations, caves etc. and to visit the little fishing inlets/harbours. A very informative commentary was given on the history and wildlife. Highly recommended.

As a local I love to see our landscapes and nature from all perspectives. The fact that I get to splash in a speedboat makes these trips all the more fun. I have tried several with this company and yesterday went all the way to the Whaligoe steps. As always safety and consideration for their passengers is premuim. I have... More

Really good, saw sea lions bobbing around the boat, jelly fish, great scenery and really informative guide. 11 year old son was grinning all the way finally got him off Pokemon (briefly).

Having booked at the last minute, we were really pleased to have taken the 90 minute excursion south from Wick harbour to the inlet at Whaligoe Steps. The skipper, William Munroe, was a font of information not only about the various abundant wildlife but also the formation of the cave network and impressive cliffs visited during the cruise. Having visited... More

One of the highlights of our vacation, especially for our teen daughters. I can strongly recommend the 1,5 trip which was very informative and interesting. Wonderful views from the sea at the beach and rocks, caves and falls, wildlife, etc. The skipper should get an award as educational trainer, my daughters learned more in this 1,5 hour than in a...

We did the one and a half hour trip - but it went on longer. The guide pointed out wildlife and had an abundant knowledge of the local history. The boat went through rock formations and into caves - and we finished with a journey at speed back to Wick Harbour. Would thoroughly recommend.

Having been to lybster regularly to see family but always off season we decided to do the boat trip this time and LOVED IT! The coastline looked so different from the sea as the caves and birdlife were amazing. We called on the day to check space and they took our number and called back later to say 2 more... More

From start to end the trip is informative, safe and well designed, took the south tour with 10 visitors inclusing us going south along the sea stacks , cliffs and caves. Wonderful views which you don't appreciate when driving around, wonderful cliffs full of birds , plus seals, with a speedy return to blow the cobwebs away, it was so... More

Being Caithness born and bred I wasn't sure how much I'd get out of this trip but how wrong I was. The combination of the exhilarating speed of the boat with the superb commentary was highly impressive. The access to the amazing Caithness coastline and its animal inhabitants afforded by the boat was also a real highlight. Overall though the... More
