Fantastic boat trip while staying at the Kylesku hotel. The two captains were very friendly and knowledgeable - and they bake great shortbread! Added a couple of photos I took in case you want to add to the website.

Don't miss this trip if you are in the area. The views are fantastic and the seals lay on some great pictures. The crew of the boat are real enthusiasts for the area and that is really powerful.
