Skipper kept up an entertaining, and informative commentary through... More

The way into the cave is a little bit slippery and there were a lot of people sitting inside the cave. The next stop was Treshnish Islands were... More

We had a great time on our trip to Staffa Island and Fingal's Cave was amazing. But what we will never forget is the amazing service we received from the Turus Mara staff. After having some car trouble the night we arrived on the Isle of Mull we ended up car-less the morning we had our boat trip booked. Our... More

This trip was part of my 'package' Wildlife Holiday. I was expecting a boat trip to Staffa and Treshnish, but was already having great fun as the members of the party were assembling. Steve, who drove us and Gaston and Daniel who were also guests had me in good high spirits before we got on board. The crew were very... More

We booked Staffa & Treshnish Isles tour and what a fabulous day out we had with them. Staffa was brilliant and the day out was topped with the sighting of the white tailed eagles on Ulva

The Captain and crew on the boat were very friendly, polite and informative. During the cruise, we saw many seals and different birds such... More

My husband and I took the combination Staffa and Lunga Tour on Turus Mara on August 1st. We were blessed with a glorious day! The captain provided narration as we sailed,identifying landmarks and pointing out wildlife. Fingal's cave on Staffa is a geologic wonder! I have not seen anything to compare with the basalt columns. Walking along the narrow walkway... More

We chose the perfect day, bright sunshine, calm sea. Crew of 2 were friendly and knowledgable about the wildlife and the views, told you all about what you were seeing. We had an hour on the island. I could have done with half hour more in the sun, but we had time to walk to Fingles cave and up to... More
