Crew were very knowledgeable, friendly and quite forthcoming to feedback which provided for an amazing experience. This was topped with good views of Ben Nevis and spotting of 43 seals during the cruise. what's more, my daughter could maneuver a motor boat for the first time in her life (of course with the crew overlooking her closely). Highly recommended if you are around the area!!

Skipper was incredibly informative on a wide range of topics, passionate about Scotland and went the extra mile to get us the shot of the Harry Potter train over the loch and close to the seals. I honestly didn’t expect that much other than to see some seals, but this blew past my expectations, genuinely very very good & a must while in fort William!

What a super trip ! Carl and his crew were very welcoming. Carl did a superb commentary informing us about the area of Fort William and the history of the Loch. I must admit I can usually ‘glaze’ over with commentaries but I was engaged the whole time. We were very lucky to see porpoises along with the seals. I would highly recommend this trip, 2 hrs goes in no time.
