“GREAT DAY OUT”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Thirty of us rented 3 boats from the guys and we set off to Mull for a couple of hours,the weather was great, in fact so good that 10 of our crew decided to go for a swim-hehe-even late September the water is a tad chilly.
The Captains were very knowledgable and prepared to adjust the itinerary to suit the conditions.
High speed boats are great fun and everyone thought it was a great trip

“Great Day Out”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Sailed out from Oban with some friends and had a wonderful day cruising round the small islands on the west coast of Scotland . The views were fantastic and It was wonderful to have the Dolphins swim along the side of the boat. Cameron and Struan were very knowledgeable and friendly and the vessel is clean and very well equipped Thankyou for an unforgetable day.

“Simply brilliant.”
Reviewed 4 September 2013 via mobile

From the initial warm welcome by the twin brothers who run this 2 hr trip to the sightings of grey seal and their cubs, this was a brilliant way to spend an afternoon. The guys are local and as such are a wealth of knowledge about everything. From wildlife to who owns what property, you get lots of information. They can also spot an eagle a mile off. Highly recommended, great boat, great guys, brilliant value.

“Brilliant experience”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

Fantastic day trip to Tobermory. Small 10-12 seater boat, skippered by Cameron. A delightful young man who obviously loves his job. Very knowledgable, friendly and customer friendly. The puffins had already left the area but he took us to see the seals and tried hard to find the eagles. Would take another trip in a heartbeat. Great outing!

“Highlight of our Scotland trip”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

We had very limited time to see Scotland and wanted to go to the Isle of Mull so we chartered a boat with Coastal Connections. Cameron was a great tour guide and in one day went to the islands of Iona, Staffa, Lunga and Mull which is impossible with other tour operators. Cameron had great local knowledge of the islands and slowed the boat when we saw sealife, dolphins and birds etc. We saw the islands at our own pace and he was very relaxed about our return time. We all had a brilliant time and I would recommend Coastal Connections to anyone.
