Lovely trip. Calum and his son Malcolm clearly know the seals and their favourite hang-outs really well, so we saw loads of them, while respecting the animals' need for space.

Thank you so much Calum for yet another amazing trip to see the seals! Charlie especially loved being 'Captain' of your boat and of course the secret supply of lollipops for the children! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Callum the captain was a wonderful character, full of fun and very knowledgeable. Really enjoyed the boat trip.

Besides a lot of seals you'll see the Duncraig castle and lots of unspoilt nature with opportunity for unique photos. Callum and his assistant Malcolm were the best, we learned a lot of interesting facts about the local history.

Nice trip and yes you'll see some seals. Very friendly people who run it and you will probably get a song from the Captain. ( He won't win X factor but he might win you over!)

Callum is a really nice man who, together with his assistant the lovely Fiona (whose main profession is as an opera singer ) runs his boat around the nearby coast in search of seals and other mammals. Callum knew exactly where they were that day...More

Oh yes, Calum would be more than happy to have a well behaved dog on board.
