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

Well - this was great fun! sitting in an inflatable with 2 outboard motors, bouncing across the waves. There was a bit of a swell when my son and I went out and at times the boat was flying! In between times there is a very good commentary on local history, bird life and geology. Puffins, razorbills, seals. I'd do... More

A truly amazing trip under the massive cliffs and into the caves along the coast south of Wick. Before boarding, there was a detailed safety briefing as we got fully kitted out and prepared for any unlikely emergency. The boat is an incredibly powerful machine, with cushioned seating which protected even my bad spine from any ups and downs along... More

Beautiful, informative and fun experience. We went out with William who was an excellent and knowledgeable host and guide. There was not a stretch of the coastline that he did not have an interesting tale or two about. We will hopefully be going north the next time we go. I need to learn more about the east of Caithness and... More

Northern Scotland. Castles, bays and fishing villages. Beautiful scenery. Try the Mackay Hotel in Wick, and the Stroma, a local single malt liqueur.

This was a fun trip in a small, fast boat. We're grateful that the captain was willing to go out with just me and my husband. It took several phone calls to decide on the trip because the weather was iffy, but we ended up having only a little rain. And it was fun getting into all their cold weather/sea... More

We thought this was going to be good but not this good! On arrival staff were welcoming and helpful, assisted us to get into our waterproofs and into the rib boat. Our on boat "guide" was informative and knowledgeable and as he is local to the area he had lots of anecdotes and was evidently passionate about the area, it's... More
