Reviews for South Argyll wildlife cruises in Scotland


review 12 Jun 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The weather was amazing but even more so were the wonderful crew - Steve, our chef - so inventive and creative. He went out of his way to make sure we all had food we loved, but also stretched our taste buds in the way he cooked and displayed the dishes. Iain our skipper made sure all needs were catered for. For example I made an off-the- cuff remark about another hook in my cabin. When I came back from my walk there it was! Another passenger had difficulty walking- he took her in the tender to find seals.Booking the vacation was a treat too - Jamie was always willing to give information. Beautiful country - right on our doorstep - I'm so pleased I took a chance on a boat trip!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Go and enjoy. I am not a sailor but I loved it. I found sea bands (for travel sickness)really worked. I even read books while the boat was moving.Good walking boots, sun cream and insect repellant for the midges!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - very much so. We visited local communities who rely on tourists. We were able to learn and find out about local conservation projects and how they are helping this fragile environment survive. The small boat enabled us to travel with less disruption to sea life. The crew were responsible and made us aware of how to respect the sea, and places we stopped at.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Expect the unexpected, travel outside your comfort zone - this vacation was a sheer delight. Coming away I felt enriched - I felt better physically, emotionally and mentally!
