Bella Jane Boat trips and AquaXplore are all part of the same business which operates from Elgol in Skye.
My wife and I were on a trip on the Bella Jane in late September. We both work in and around Scottish Tourism. I have worked in support of many Scottish tourism businesses to help them achieve their growth plans. We were on holiday on Skye and decided to go on a boat trip. The Bella Jane was superb in all areas. They did all the basic things right (which many do not). Directions were clear, everyone was immediately friendly and helpful on arrival and then the trip itself was first class. Jan on board was an absolute gem, so enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable. The skipper was great too and spotted porpoises for us to watch on route. We thought the trip there and back was just right in length and commentary and the hot drinks are a nice touch. We had thought we'd spend 3 hours ashore but it was clearly explained that we'd not get right round the Loch in that time. There was absolutely no problem changing to the standard trip although we felt a bit guilty because this meant that the boat was at full capacity. However, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We were incredibly lucky with the weather and of course the area is majestic. We would love to have gone on the AquaXplore too but couldn't do everything and this was the last day of our holiday so the budget had already been exceeded. However, we fully plan to do this one day.
