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.

The cruise was absolutely amazing, I enjoyed every minute!!! Thank you :D :D Loved the commentary on the way and the option to buy tea or coffee onboard. It was amazing to see Ben Nevis really clearly from our cruise too! We got lucky on our cruise and saw sooo many seals, it was utterly mesmerising and awe inspiring to see them! I will always remember it! We also saw so many other amazing things like a man in a fishing boat fishing for langoustines, a mussel farm among many other amazing things! :D

We absolutely loved our trip! The captain was very nice and super informative. We had prepared to see seals but got way more than expected. We learned so much about Loch Linnhe, the surrounding landscape and Scotland as a whole. We were also able to catch the Hogwarts ecpress as it was driving into the station. Well worth the money. The crew very clearly want the guests to have the best experience possible. Highly recommend!
