Ventured out on the five island cruise and was not disappointed. The weather and water conditions were perfect as we set off from Greenock at 10.30am last Thursday. With pick ups/drop offs at Millport,Dunoon,Largs, Helensburgh etc we eventually arrived at Brodick on the isle of Arran around 3.15pm, just in time for an Arran Dairy Ice Cream! Delish indeed! The five islands were Cumbrae,Bute, Arran and then a tour around Pladda and the Holy Isle(we didn't do that bit) and then back via the various docks we arrived back at Greenock around 9.45 pm. Everyone on the boat was really friendly and service was excellent. Take a picnic or dine inside the hull at one of the two eating areas. You can pop down and visit the engine rooms and chat with the staff who at very knowledgable and willing to answer the kids umpteen questions. It is very warm in there though, so be prepared! Would definately recommend. There are loads of shorter trips if the whole day out is not for you or just want to visit a specific island. Would be a great gift for someone. We'll be back next year!
