Incredible two hours, Simon is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife, He gave us plenty of history but in a humorous way that was so interesting, I am sure even locals to the area don't know all of what Simon relayed. Such a diverse trip. Plenty of skimming over the water at a rate of... More

We booked the two hour ride and were thoroughly entertained the full time. Our guide Simon was brilliant with not only knowledge about the wildlife but also juicy titbits about the area including a live demonstration of the witch's cauldron . We saw herons, ravens, salmon n seals but the grand finale was Simon's demonstration of what his boat could... More

Recommend this trip as Simon was very informative and had a good sense of humour. Along with this it was great fun with high speeds towards the end of the trip.

This was an incredible trip. Simon was warm and welcoming. His knowledge of the area, wildlife and history was fantastic. We got to see an amazing array of birds, seals and some wild goats. There was a particularly memorable end to the boat ride showing just why the SAS/SBS use RIBs! If you are visiting Glencoe I cannot recommend this... More

A party of 12 of us booked for the boat trip. We were 3 families of 6 adults and 6 children aged 8-13. The 1 hour boat ride had something for the whole group including thrills and spills of the speedboat. We all loved it and if we had the chance would do it again. Thanks to Patrick for the... More

We took this trip on October 4th in the morning. The weather was excellent. Captain Simon took us through Loch Leven under the Ballachulish Bridge over to the far side of Loch Linnhe. It was a great combination of biology, history and just being out on the water. Simon was also superb at looking after his passengers.

We went for the two hour wildlife and history tour. Malcolm, as previously stated, is very entertaining and knowledgable. Although we only saw Herons, cormorants, wild Goats and a few Deer, we still had an immensely enjoyable time. Take heed of what Malcolm says though and wrap up warm. Also take a hat from them, best to lose theirs in... More

I booked this at the last moment and it was one of the most exiting two hours we have spent in a long time. The start in Loch Leven is quiet and calm then you go under the road bridge into Loch Linnhe which is an enormous sea Loch so open to sea at one end, the Rib driven by... More
