There was bad weather so in my case we had to skip the seals but nonetheless the crew were very good at giving us a good experience and making us have a good time. We had good talks about historic events that transpired there and the bumpy ride even made things more interesting. It was great!

We joined the 2-hour cruise at the end of October, so it was a little cold up on top deck, but we loved it. The extra information on route was a bonus learning about the history of the loch, Lairds and local industry! We also spotted seals and porpoises - and added extra. Thanks for the experience

A worthwhile experience with an excellent commentary on the local geology, history and wildlife. Hot chocolate, coffee tea and alcoholic drinks available on board. Warm inside cabin if cold. We saw seals close up, red deer feeding and heron, and guillemots. The skipper spotted some porpoise but we did not see them. Well worth the trip.
