An adventure from start to finish and the 2 Wullies were fantastic at looking after and informing us on the sights and history. More adventure than bargained for with side foam panels coming off on the way out due to design fault but no safety issue. Amazing sea stacks and the island of Hirta is superb. Beautiful warm weather. A great trip. Highly recommended but take sea sick tabs.

Amazing day - great service and what an experience. Recommended. The sea stacs blow your mind and the remains on the island were much more extensive and impressive than I had imagined.

We left Stein in the mist and rain. The crossing out was awful. 4 hours of awful. I'm sure to seasoned sailors it was fine but I felt so, so sick as the boat powered through wind and waves with no land in sight. I had taken sea sickness pills so heaven knows what I would have been like without them. However, as the St Kilda archipelago hove into view, the sun broke through and transformed the day from hellish to wondrous. This what what I'd suffered for; the sea stacks, the soaring birds, finally seeing for myself this achingly poignant time capsule at the edge of the world. The weather couldn't have been better and, although Covid put a stop to the visit to the gift shop I'd been looking forward to (still not sure it actually exists), the guide from our boat was excellent. We toured Village Bay in glorious sunshine trying to imagine the stone age life endured by those only a few generations before us. I paddled in the warm, clear water of the bay while the more adventurous in my party explored Hirta. 4 hours passed too quickly and alas we were back on the boat. More seasickness tablets, but the sun was out and I WAS GOING HOME. To my delight, the journey back was magical. The sun sparkled on the water through the Sound of Harris - surely one of the most beautiful, peaceful places on earth. Our captain showed quite unbelievable seamanship as he negotiated a drop off at Berneray, then we were off again, across The Minch back to majestic Skye bathed in evening sunshine. A trip of a lifetime and one not to be undertaken lightly if you are a landlubber like me. I can safely say I'll never go back, but so, so glad I went. Thank you to all at Go St. Kilda for keeping me safe and sound!

We have tried 4 times before to get our to St Kilda and after a change in the weather our original trip was brought forward by 2 days to give us a chance to get out there and wow we are so grateful and thankful we got the opportunity to do this trip, despite being 12 hours away we moved heaven and earth to get there so if you ever get the chance DO IT you won’t regret it! The Go To St Kilda team are professional and welcoming, the whole experience will stay with us forever. We have done countless boat trips but this one totally exceeded anything we have done before, the people, the boat and of course St Kilda is just awe inspiring. The skippers Mike and Willie make the boat trip so relaxing and whenever any wildlife was spotted they went out of their way to ensure we had the best possible time, we saw minke and dolphins. Thank you so much for a fabulous day...

Visited St Kilda with Go St Kilda on 15 Aug 20. Everything about the trip was perfect. Professional, safe feeling and friendly. Small diversions to take in wildlife (big pods of dolphins and a minkie whale) and very knowledgeable crew. Had an utterly amazing experience.
