Oh what a great day. We saw a large pod of dolphins, a sea eagle, many birds and seals and learned a lot about the area. Hugely knowledgable guide who shared information with humour . Loved it

Great trip today. Noel was very welcoming and provided entertaining and informative commentary. Saw seals, porpoises, gannets and 3 Sean eagles which was amazing. It had been a very wet morning but brightened up after about 15 mins of leaving so got some amazing views. Very well worth the money and thoroughly enjoyable.

We enquired about the trip in advance and was given loads of help by Annette provisionally booking a trip. In the afternoon of our visit. We had to change last minute Annette promptly came back to me and we sorted a morning trip. We got to meet her at the booking office she was as lovely in person. The trip itself was excellent really don’t think about not doing this if your there and have time. The bit was spacious clean and modern it had a toilet (important if you’ve got little ones!) and lots of different locations to view the amazing scenery. We had the most spectacular time with dolphins - really special seeing baby dolphins and all so close almost to touch - and saw an sea eagle, seals and loads of bird life. We got a
Real sense of commitment to environment and history of the place too.

On a beautiful clear day such as we had, the mountain views throughout the whole trip
are spectacular.
Sea life, bird life made enjoyable with the pilots fabulous informative commentary.
Lots to see!
The dolphins put on a great display weaving around the boat and beyond. So lucky at last minutes to be see a Minke whale emerging from the waters.
Very comfy and roomy boat with choice to sit in enclosed cabin or be out in fresh air, or choose both
Fabulous time

A brilliant morning. The weather was great and we enjoyed two well informed crew inform us of the geology, local history, environmental issues and it was all topped by several pods of dolphins keen to entertain us. If I was in Ullapool longer I would take another trip.
