Many thanks to Lewis Mackenzie, the thoroughly excellent skipper of Hebridean Fish n Trips. The absolute highlight of our visit following a fabulous day on Luskentyre beach, Harris, we then went for a 5 pm 2 hour wildlife spotting/fishing trip with Lewis. Setting off from Keose, Lewis gave us a thorough safety briefing and decked us out in oilskins and life jackets before setting off on his comfortable and very clean boat to try and spot some seals, and do a spot of fishing. We were delighted to hear about the salmon and mussel farming, and then spot a lovely family of seals including pups nearby, but imagine our delight to come across a pod of around 50 common dolphins all criss-crossing in front and behind and alongside the boat, leaping and somersaulting all around us. We couldn't have wished for a more memorable experience and had no idea that we would see a few never mind such a vast number of dolphins so closely. We then enjoyed a spot of mackerel fishing just dipping our rods in where Lewis stopped and immediately pulling out baby pollock and about 20 mackerel in just 10 mins and putting most back and a couple hand fed by Lewis to the persistent Skua that followed us on our trip hoping for some spoils! A family memory which will last forever of a fabulous day on Lewis and Harris. Can't recommend it enough. Thank you Lewis.
