Well run trip, all safety covered especially as the weather was not good. Cleared when we got to Finnals cave. 90 minutes inland but if you are not sure footed this is not for you. Did not see much wildlife but as stated weather not good.

A well run and organised operation, very safe and enjoyable. All safety precautions are taken. Was disappointed Puffins had left, this wasn't advised prior to our trip, although in fairness nothing is promised so maybe I should have checked more myself. did see numerous birds, seals & a magnificent amount of Dolphins who swam next to the boat. Fingals Cave is a stopping point & an absolutely breathtaking spot and not to be missed. A little on the expensive side at £55 but it's a one off so you have to accept it is worth it. Trip is approx 4 hours in total.

This father and son partnership really do everything they can to deliver the boat trip of a lifetime. Nothing was too much effort and they extended the trip to ensure we got a close view of common dolphins, this after seeing 6 Sea Eagles in action. Very knowledgable people, a pleasure to spend time with them.

We booked a family trip (including a 16 year old and an 8 year old) to visit Staffa & the Treshnish Isles in August - a trip / experience for which I have nothing but praise. Booking online was very simple and easy but equally the team were contactable and friendly on the telephone. In fact on the day we were scheduled to go I lost my car keys but rung up with only 30 mins until we were due to sail and was immediately moved onto the following days trip (with more concern for me an my keys than their own disruption) On the day access to the boat at Ulva is easy and obvious and with the Covid situation cleanliness, social distancing etc were all catered for and prioritised. At no time did we feel unsafe or packed together on the boat. On the trip we spent the first 30 minutes being surrounded by dolphins leaping around our boat and then on the way to Staffa we also saw several Minke Whales and porpoises off little Corosay . This took much longer than the original schedule given all the wild life on show but the crew were more than happy to take the time and extended the length of the trip to account for this. We had a full hour on the isle of Staffa - plenty of time to see the cave, wander round the island and have a picnic. We then cruised round the various Treshnish isles with the crew pointing out all the many sea birds, seals and other wild life interspersed with the history of the islands before returning on the North side of Ulva and passing several Sea Eagles on the way home. Throughout the crew were very friendly and accommodating and I would highly recommend this tour which you feel has a much more personal and customer friendly approach than some of the other equivalents. We were lucky with the wildlife but will definitely consider booking again particularly if we are on Mull in June / July when you also stop on Lunga to see all the Puffins nesting at very close hand. We had a mixed age group party and all enjoyed themselves thoroughly - thank you very much to Ian M and his crew.
