“Wonderful wildlife trip”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Thank you so much to the skipper and crew for the trip on Sunday 12th May. This is for all their usual pleasant, knowledgeable and highly professional care, but also for their kindness as this was my first trip to this very special island without my dear husband. I hope to be back in June to see if the puffins are on guard at their burrow entrances and feeding their young! Sunday was especially good for viewing a beautiful shag as she constantly improved her nest around her and tried to shoo away a couple of rather too neighbourly razorbills - but without budging from her eggs! So domestic, and her care so tender, quite moving. Lyn

“Another amazing trip to the Isle of May”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Today was about our 7th trip to the Isle of May aboard the May Princess. The crew always make us feel welcome and always remember us each year. Today was as good as ever and the weather was amazing as well. The service the crew provide and their knowledge is amazing and we can only recommend this trip highly if you are in the Anstruther area. Well done guys and congratulations on becoming the new owners, hopefully we may be able to make another trip with you in the summer if we can get down at the end of our holiday in Fort William. Thanks again Sue and Stuart Greenhalgh who sailed today 5 May.

“Lovely day out”
Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

The best day out in Fife. The boat trip takes about an hour. You can get a nice cup of tea on board. The skipper points out birds and seals and interesting features but the commentary isn't intrusive. Some excellent piloting got us into the pier despite a big swell. The Isle of May is beautiful and we spent a lovely couple of hours watching the birds and seals.

Thank you for your kind review. Being the new owners this year it is very encouraging to receive the positive feedback. I think you were probably on Saturday's trip when we left Anstruther in glorious conditions to be met with the last of the Easterly swell which had been running. It does make the entrance at the May a bit more difficult but for the rest of the trip the conditions were pretty good and the boat had a real happy feel about it as everyone appeared to have a great day out.

“Fantastic Day Out”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

A fantasic day out. The aim was to go and see puffins on the Isle of May. Whilst there were few puffins present today the day was great all the same. Plenty of other wildlife and a lovely little island to walk around. The crossing to the island takes about 50 minutes, it was longer for us as the conditions were worse than expected by the island but the skipper perservered to get us onto the island in what I imagine were very tricky conditions to steer a boat in! All in all a great day and very friendly crew.
