Went to Isle of May on Friday 8th July in a party of three adults and three small boys. Wasn't expecting too much, but in the event turned out to be a truly wonderful day. Three things 1) the wildlife was astounding. Thousands of colourful puffins everywhere, it was like being in a David Attenborough film. 2) the Isle of... More

Great weather, wonderful boat trip, 2 hours exploring a magical island and its wildlife. The crew and the island staff are fantastic. Even got to release a puffling on the return journey. Worth every penny. Thanks.

All the staff on board were very good and told us all about the birds and wildlife on route. I would recommend this company to everyone. The staff were brilliant and made everyone very welcome.

It poured with rain the whole time during our trip and it was still well worth it and good fun. Very knowledgeable crew and I was well up on the current birds before reaching the island. Skilful boat handling to get us to the pier on Isle of May. Good advice from wardens. Hot drinks on board on return trip.... More

We had had many holidays in Fife over the years and don't know how we missed this! Must be we of my best days out ever for bird lovers with a camera. Admittedly got one of the best days for it at about the best time of year for seeing puffins close up. Good also for arctic terns, guillemots, razorbills... More

Had a fantastic trip to the island to photograph the puffins. The trip takes approx 1hr and on arrival you are greated with the staff from the island. The skipper tells you some interesting things about the island and how the various birds live etc. With light refreshments on the boat this is a good time to stock up before... More

While planning a vacation, I bought tickets beforehand online, arrived the morning of the trip to the Isle of May, picked up tickets, and boarded the boat. I am not sure if they regularly sell out, but if you know you are going, I would encourage you to buy tickets ahead of time to ensure that you get one. The... More

Found out recently that the Isle of May housed the puffins we were desperate to see. Looked online and read about the May Princess ferry to the island and we were lucky to get a booking on this very popular sailing. The weather was reasonable and on the way out the crew gave us a lot of information about what... More
