This trip was the highlight of our time in Skye, and that says something as Skye has so much wonderful things to see and do, which we managed to do some over our week in Skye. We took the trip from Elgol harbour on the Misty Isle boat called Eilean a Cheo which means Island of Mist or Misty Isle.
We wanted to go to Rum and choose this trip as it just felt right, there are so many ways we could of gone to Rum, so glad I stuck with my gut instinct.
The trip out to Rum was brilliant, steady and fast, I had no concerns for my two children and felt we were in safe hands. We had a great time ashore on Rum, we had four hours before the boat came back with the other passengers who choose to visit Canna and see the Puffins and other wildlife.
We were picked up and had a hot drink and biscuit which was very nice and then what did we see, a ORCA.!!! The excitement was incredible for all on board, and Thomas the skipper steered us towards this incredible sight, we tracked it and were side by side so close that we heard it as it surfaced many times. Even though it was the homeward journey as we had all had our trips the boat keep going and we had so much fun and we in awe of this magnificent site and felt so privileged to have witnessed this animal before it made its way out to sea.
We were really impressed by this family lead company, they make you feel so welcome from the time we arrived until we left and we just wished we could of stayed longer on Skye so we could experience some of their other boat trips.
We will definitely be back and will choose the Misty Isle Boat Trips every time, they are worth every penny. Thank you Thomas and Seamus for being just great hosts, you made all your visitors very happy indeed.
