“A lovely trip in search of seals”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

We went to the main pier in Plockton to go out on a seal trip. The loch was very calm and no wind or rain. We had a beautiful round trip and saw lots of mountains and a lot of seals. We had great fun too with Captain Calum and his crew member. When we one day return to Plockton, we will take another ride! Highly recommended :-)

Thank Birgit B

“must do in Plockton”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Callum and Joy were brilliant. Even if we had seen no wildlife (we did - lots - seals and a wide variety of sea birds) the very reasonable fee was worth it for the Plockton Bay cruise to listen to Callum's patter and daft jokes. A real character, he is delightful and fun, a man seemingly happy in his work - so makes it most enjoyable for the passengers. Joy efficiently make coffee, poured drinks and told us even more about the area, and explaining enthusiastically about the different birds and animals we saw. An absolute must do for anyone going to Plockton!!

“Excellent Wildlife Trip”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Very good boat with plenty room and a little bar for drinks coffee etc. Callum is quite a character and has great knowledge of the area. A decent number of seals and various sea birds were on display. This trip is really good value for money.

“Fantastic trip.”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We picked a perfect day for Callum's boat trip. The sun was shining, the rain had stopped and the seals were out basking in the sunshine. The views from the boat are just stunning, we could have ridden around all day just taking photos and soaking up the beautiful scenery. Callum gave an entertaining commentary and was definitely "in the money" after finding so many seals on the islands! His claim is that you don't pay if you don't see any seals but we certainly did. It was a real thrill to see so many just chilling out on the rocks. Callum invited the children to "drive" his boat and gave them all a lolly too, my two girls thoroughly enjoyed the trip and were desperate to go crabbing after seeing so many large crabs (and starfish) in the clear water around the shores. When you go into the shop to buy your tickets, step outside in the road and look up at Callum's back garden, he has some rather random and unusual garden ornaments scattered around! There are some lovely knick-knacks and souvenirs in the shop too. Callum's seal trip is a definite MUST-DO if you are in the area.
