Went on a boat, saw seals and eider ducks. I strongly suggest you listen to their call, sounds like a carry on film But nice boat crew, weather was a bit rubbish, but am guessing they have no control over that.

Great trip on a choppy day to see the seals. The captain really knew his stuff and placed us in a small bay where we were surrounded by hundreds of seals. Outstanding.

Boat very stable, everyone very friendly and I formative. Saw seals and lots of seal pups. Biggest treat was seeing a large group of dolphins s including a baby. I would definitely recommend the trip.

Sorry for the very late reply. We only tend to do them when things are starting to be spotted in the area and so far nothing has. I know I'm probably to late now but I thought would try and answer your question.

Not much to add. It does depend on the tide. Low tide departures involve a lot of steps, high tide is much easier. Check with the operator, one of the boats has wheelchair access, the other has a little door which makes... More

Depeding what island you're going for. You can take an all day trip to see 2 islands or a 3 hour trip to see 1 island.. Overall, the prices are very reasonable! check their website.
