We had perfect weather the day we went out on the boat; 70 and sunny and no wind. We saw two sets of eagles and several seals. We didn't get to see any porpoises though. The scenery from the boat was just incredible.

We had been recommended to use this company, and the reviews were good here, so we tried to book by phone before we went. They said they were having trouble with their boat so not taking bookings - fair enough. When we got to Skye...More

We booked by email fairly late, having checked the weather forecast, and got a prompt reply saying we were on the 'Spindrift' rather than the 'Brigadoon', which was fine. It ended up as the skipper and the two of us plus 3 families from Shanghai...More

Wonderful boat tour. Skipper (Peter) was friendly, interesting and informative. Saw the Sea Eagles and then Peter spotted a porpoise and changed the 'routine' tour to follow a pod of Dolphins for over 1 hour. Fantastic!

Captain George gave us a terrific experience! We saw eagles and seals, and he went out of his way to make it a memorable trip for our three year old son. Definitely recommended. Thanks George!
