Lovely boat. Amazing tackle. We caught so much fish. Mackerel, pollack and crab. The fish itself would have cost the same price in a supermarket as the cost of the trip. Such good value for money. The trip to the fishing site was awsome and beautiful. Our host was knowledgeable and absolutely charming. We really enjoyed his company and he made us feel so special. My daughter Oona and I agree this is the best highlight of any holiday we’ve had. I couldn’t recommend this boat trip more.

The couple of hours we shared on Lewis' boat were simply stunning. Not only is he a keen skipper/fisher/fotographer - he really respects and loves the loch, the animals and their natural habitats. We were lucky enough to see eagles feed, watch seals play - and catch some fish. All this to much welcomed Information about what it is, that we are witnessing. And last but not least - it seems that Lewis loves what he is doing. So it's not just a case of him taking people out on a boat - but an invitation to share his passion!! Thanks a lot Lewis - we'll come again!!

My husband and I took a trip out with Lewis about 4 years ago and had such a brilliant time that when we came back bringing our daughters, I absolutely knew that they would have to experience it too. Lewis is so knowledgeable about all the wildlife and fortunately for us, we had one of the few sunny afternoons in late August. We saw so many amazing birds and the white tailed eagle came and took quite a few of the fish we had caught. There were quite a few great skuas who swooped down and almost took a fish out of my daughter's hand. We saw seals, caught mackerel and saw the largest crab imaginable. I cannot begin to recommend this trip highly enough. No trip to the Hebrides is complete without a couple of hours on Lewis's boat and his delightful company.

At 20 weeks pregnant, I wasn’t allowed to do the rib boat tour my husband and I had originally planned. In search of a bigger boat suitable for pregnant women, my husband found Lewis and Fish ‘n’ Trips, and I’m so glad he did! What a remarkable experience! Lewis is extremely knowledgeable about wildlife and all things aquatic in the Outer Hebrides. We got to view a salmon farm and experience wildlife first hand. Some of the wildlife included 2 eagles, multiple skua (and feeding the skua), a dolphin, a seal colony, razorbills, and guillemots . My husband even caught 2 mackerel! Thanks for everything, Lewis!

We had a wonderful time and Lewis really is an excellent guide and a very nice and interesting man. We went on his boat through beautiful bays, with little green islands and cliffs all around us. Lewis showed us ( and explained) the salmon farms, the mussel farms, and then took us on a boat ride to observe many young seals laying out on rocks. Nature at its best! We then had a wonderful time with mackerel fishing - our 9 year old daughter had a great time and we caught lots of fish (Lewis cleaned the fish for us, so we had lots of excellent dinners). P.s. we kept a few for the older seals in the harbour. Then Lewis showed us many different seabirds ( we fed some fish to them), and we saw 3 white tailed eagles! Two adults and a baby eagle, who was just standing on a little island very near us. Amazing! We also went to check his lobster cage in the Ocean and freed the lobster that was in it since it was too small. All of this in only 3 hours. You can not miss this boat tour!
