“Fantastic experience”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

On the day of our trip it was very rainy so only four of us on the boat. We were given full waterproofs, gloves and hats to wear as well as glasses and a really useful bag containing binoculars, and pictures of local wildlife to help us spot them when we were out. We could also put our cameras etc in this to keep them dry. Paul our guide was very friendly and extremely knowledable and nothing was too much trouble for him. He checked everyone was ok throughout trip, provided cover on the boat if required and made sure everyone was included. We saw loads of wildlife and learnt lots about the history of the area and wildlife. A brilliant trip no matter what the weAther is doing. Would highly recommend.

“Amazing family day out! ”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

We are a family of six with 'children' aged 11 to 26 and it was the highlight of our holiday for everyone.

The day we were supposed to go out was very wet and windy, but it wasn't a problem to move the trip to another day. The people at the office and the boatman were very understanding and helpful.

The trip itself was wonderful. Our guide, Charles, was friendly, fun and really knew his stuff (he was singing in the inn that evening too)! We were kitted out with waterproofs, binoculars and wildlife cards to identify birds which was a really nice touch. There was loads of wildlife to see and lots of history about the area too.

This is a must to anyone visiting the area!

“Excellent Boat Trip”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

This was definitely the best boat trip we've ever been on. After putting on our life jackets and handed our bags with binoculars and laminated cards of wildlife we might see on the trip, we headed off across the loch with Captain Paul. Paul has an excellent knowledge of the history of the area and the wildlife. He makes it a really interesting and entertaining family trip. Thoroughly recommend it.

“What a fantastic experience !!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

It was more than fantastic to make the 'wildlife and historic tour' with the fast boat of seaXplorer. Our guide was called Paul. A very nice guy with a lot of humor and ..... he is a great story teller !! Thank you Paul for the ride! I absolutely recommend everyone to book one of the fast boat tours with you.

“Fantastic Boat Trip”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

All we can say is that our trip with Paul this morning was absolutely fantastic. We have never written a review on Trip advisor before but the trip is worth getting the old fingers out to type something up.

The trip was full of facts, fun and speed which made an hour seem like a minute.

If you are in the area please make sure you give it a go and you will have a great memory to take home.

Thanks
