Our seal trips are unique because, unlike other boat trip operators who may promise you will see seals on every trip, we don’t. No-one can guarantee this but we guarantee that you will get the trip for free if there are no seals.
As the longest established boat trip operator in Skye & Lochalsh, we know there are times when the seals will have simply disappeared. There could be many reasons — high tide, canoes chasing them off or they have just gone elsewhere; after all it is nature in the wild. You will get a warm and friendly welcome from our experienced and knowledgeable skipper and crew, great commentary, and one that children will love.
