“The best way to Tobermory”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

5 of us wanted to have a day trip to Tobermory - this included our elderly parents with Mum not being the best on her feet so we weren't entirely sure that this was going to be appropriate transport for her. However the Information Centre assured us 'the boys will look after you' and we need not have worried as Cameron was more than accomodating and helpful and the boat was clean with comfortable seats. Cameron;s knowledge of the surrounding area and islands along with the local history and wildlfe was impressive, stopping several times for photo opportunities of landmarks and seals. Having previously travelled on the alternative transport to Mull we definitely recommend that in future this is the way to get there!

“Fast boat to lovely village”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Cameron was a great skipper who showed us the land and water he loves. It was nice to get out to Tobermory, which we would not have had time for if taking the local ferry. Tobermory is a beautiful and relaxed village with many local artisans. I bought some earrings and my husband a wool cap...which we will treasure because we got to hear about the artists who made them. Strolled out to the end for a nice lunch on the deck. Wish we had had more time to stroll around. The trip back was equally beautiful. These guys give you a great tour.

“A must when in Oban”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Had a great day to Tobermory on the Island of Mull. Amazing value for a full day out.
Tobermory is nice wee fishing with loads of gifts shops and plenty of choice for lunch. We had great burger at the Pier Cafe near the Lifeboat.

“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.
