After seeing a good weather forecast for Sunday, we called Coastal Connections last minute, who arranged a private charter to include Iona, Staffa and the Corryvreckan. Struan, one of the brothers who owns the company picked us up 100m from our holiday house and took us on our way. Struan was very knowlegable enroute pointing out sights along the way. He even emailed a Google Earth map of our route after he dropped up off. It's not a cheap day out, but for something special to avoid hours of car ferries and windy roads it a great way to see a lot in one day away from the tourists.

We organised a day trip over to Mull from Oban with Coastal Connections - very good service. Cameron, one of the two brothers who own the business, called a couple of days before just to confirm details and provide all the info we needed. The trip itself was great - sightings of seals, sea eagles and lots of different birds en route. Cameron provided useful commentary and information on all the sights and the route itself - very friendly and helpful.
Our trip was full, so perhaps best to book ahead - although this can be difficult due to the changeable West coast weather!

As a highlight part of my 60th birthday celebrations we chartered both boats from Craobh Haven- and took 22 family members, age ranging from 2 to teens, to 60, for the most fantastic day out on the Coastal Connection boats. The weather was rainy and the sea choppy, which added to the excitement on the Corryvreckan, which was bubbling well, with gannets diving into the whirlpool. We then zoomed at high speed up the coast to the Boathouse restaurant at Loch a'Choire. The return trip was even more exciting as the rain had stopped, the swell had picked up and most of us were standing outside watching the amazing sea spray, views and spectacular scenery. Cameron and Struan (what a bonus having handsome identical twins!) and their mother, Heather, looked after us brilliantly. All my family were blown away and said it was one of the best days of their lives. I couldn't recommend a day out with the Coastal Connection boys more highly!
