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. 😁

Excellent trip around the Lin of Lorn with a very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating skipper (Alistair). Local business, local knowledge- worth every penny. We did our trip in beautiful weather and we will go back on a less fair day to see the seascape in...More

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.

Alistair's boat tour has been the highlight of our holiday. So much to see, so much knowledge to share, a great storyteller and marvelous with young and old alike. Thank you so much Alistair. We'll be back!

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.

We managed to get a tour with Alistair last minute of the bay surrounding Port Appin, Lismore and Castle Stalker. Very reasonably priced as there were 6 adults, a 4 year old and a 2 year old. Alistair was very informative and very interactive with...More

We enjoyed our morning boat tour with Alistair at the helm so much that we took another one going the other direction in the afternoon! No trip to Port Appin is truly complete without spending some time on the water with Alistair. He is definitely...More
