I've been on tour with rockhopper twice now and can't believe that it's not rated as the best thing to do in Fort William. Or the Highlands? Or Scotland. Its that good.
Stuart and Ben have obviously improved since last time, the safety, skills, equipment, techniques and knowledge are all first class, and therefore the adventures and fun have been perfected.
It's a beautiful way to experience nature, to see the parts other tour will never reach, and to spend your precious holidays. Do it.

Excellent overnight where Rockhopper provided all the food, professional guide. We saw seals, eagles, sea birds , castles and shared laughed. The most stunning sun rise and sun sets overlooking the West Coast. A cracking time and we will certainly be back. Thanks guys.

My husband and I had a wonderful day sea kayaking around Arisaig Sound, along with two others, guided by Stuart (who we can't recommend enough). We were lucky with the weather and the scenery was just stunning! Stuart was excellent at judging our wishes and abilities - upping or slowing the pace as necessary. We saw numerous interested seals, who were thoroughly entertaining, and myriad seabirds - including a gannet who dive-bombed for fish right next to one of our group's kayaks. We stopped for lunch in a secluded, sheltered cove with crystal clear water. The whole day was just brilliant. Thank you Stuart!

When we were finalizing our Scotland tour, I found the sea kayaking programme on visitscotland website. As we like paddling, but never tried sea kayak before, I was happy to find a company organising family friendly half day trips for beginners. It was the best decision to make it, however we stayed far from Arisaig (starting point of the trip) and had to drive a lot. Stuart was a great guide, very friendly, explained everything througoutly. We got all the necessary equipment (wet suite etc), and were well informed what to bring. Arisaig is a great place for learning to kayak,with lovely little islands, crystal clear water, safe, not windy, and getting so close to the seals was a lifetime experience!

Amazing 3-4 days kayaking round the West Coast.

Excellent scenery and Stuart and the team were really helpful in planning the trip. Very reasonable and great value for money.

Thoroughly enjoyable - we'll definitely be back!
