My friend and I had a great afternoon on the "Sealife" with Richard who was very knowledgeable and not only did we see what was under the boat but also saw harbour and grey seals and many different sea birds. It also turned out that my friend and I and Richard were all at the same college in the 1970's... More

Went on this with my boyfriend and two kids. We loved it. It was a glorious day. Ric's knowledge is just mind boggling. He knows so much. The kids had a great time spotting all the things on their list that they were given. We saw lots of underwater life as well as lots of bird life, chicks and seals.... More

This was simply Brilliant, with our knowledgeable captain Richard who shared so much interesting information throughout the trip. With loads to see, both under the water and above, and to our great delight we also saw seals, naturally frolicking - rather than being lured! The youngest member of our family got to steer us back, which she greatly enjoyed and... More

We loved this trip around the loch, Richard was a wealth of knowledge and the young lady in the office was great at kitting us all out with warm coats for the journey. Can definitely recommend a visit.

We chose the most glorious day for this cruise; perfect weather and the loveliest guide. Richard shared his knowledge of the area and the marine life with enthusiasm and passion. We saw seals, dolphins, gannets, sea urchins, star fish....... The list goes on. Thoroughly recommended.

My husband and daughter went on thick cruise and could not talk highly enough about it. The said it was so entertaining, informative and very much value for money. Our 10yr old even got the drive the boat. She also got a certificate and they give the kids a checklist to tick off when they things on the list.

We fitted this into our North Coast 500 trip. It was very good but as it was overcast it did get a bit chilly while out in the open They did tell us beforehand We saw a variety of fish crabs etc and we're lucky enough to see a couple of seals too

We booked on the last trip of the day (16:00), despite this our 'skipper' was enthusiastic as he informed us of some really remarkable facts! We saw a whole host of sea life, which yes some you could see in a rock pool, but you would not get the stunning views or excellent wildlife knowledge. I went with my 16... More

We went on the morning trip and were not disappointed. The scenery is amazing and the rain even held of too! Lots of seals to spot, different types of birds and the glass bottom allows you to see starfish, seaweed, crabs and jellyfish. Richard was extremely knowledgeable and really made the experience. All in all a must do when in... More
