We had an awesome experience out on the water with Skipper Gordon and his son. They knew just where to take us to see sea eagles and seals. But the highlight of the trip was being escorted for 15 minutes by a pod of playful dolphins! A fabulous experience!

Hello, we're coming up next week and wondered if dogs are allowed aboard if in a dog carrier bag? She's tiny :)

We booked on the 3.5 hours Stein to Waternish point wildlife trip and we were not disappointed. We saw Seals, Porpoise, minke whales and a fantastic array of seabirds. The skipper and his son were excellent hosts. The friendly skipper was particularly knowledgeable about the wildlife and the local history of the area and made the trip very enjoyable. Plenty of hot drinks were offered too. We would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to see wildlife and the amazing Skye coastline from the sea.

My boyfriend's family have a gorgeous cottage near Stein, and since it was my first time visiting the island, I was eager to see as much as I could! We recieved a lovely welcome from the people within the house when collecting our tickets - we were even allowed to use their toilet in their home which was very accomodating. We then boarded the wee boat, and the things we seen were breathtaking. The waterfalls, the views and the many sightings of the porpoise, puffins and many more were amazing. The captain was extremely knowledgeable and had funny stories, giving the experience a lovely personal touch. We are coming back to Skye this year at some point - will pop in and say hello! Thanks for an amazing experience.

The boat trip was just amazing! Our captain was not only very competent, because of him the trip was also very funny. Moreover he told us some interesting facts about the isles history. Within our 3 1/2h boat tour, we saw eagles, seals, dolphins and whales! We can also recommand the trip for families. The kids on boat had the chance to drive the boat on their own. You also get some tea or coffee on board. We would definitely do the trip again!
