Great boat trip. Alistair if very knowledgeable and fun. We saw seals, porpoises, loads of interesting birds and Alistair even made all the jelly fish interesting. A great way to spend an hour or so at Port Appin. Don't hesitate...you will love it. 😁

This boat tour was one of the highlights of our 2week stay in the Scottish Highlands. Make sure to put this on your “must do” list. We were able to get really close to Castle Stalker too.

Had a lovely tour of the bays around Appin and Lismore. Alistair was very knowledgable and had loads of great stories to tell. Stunning views, seals, wildlife and friendly chat. Not expensive either. Well worth every penny.
