I really found the trip interesting though the boat was very crowded so my kids who are quite small didnt really get any good views out of the windows which is a shame. For this reason I would give it 4 stars and I would also recommend to get there very early as I get the feeling most passengers were dropped off on the same bus. Also to note there is no taxi rank at the end, so you will need to book (only took 15 mins) but just something to be aware of that I wasnt when I did the trip.

Lovely trip around the 3 bridges and small islands. The boat staff were very nice and Anton was pleasant and gave everyone a wee chat and lots of info. We were lucky to get good weather and see the seals and puffins. If you are in the area it is worth taking time out for this trip!

Managed to take this tour with most of the trip in sunshine. Sat outdoors to catch the fresh air and the sights. Good to hear interesting facts about the tour and its history of the area. These were perfectly timed to where we were. All in, a really enjoyable experience for the family.
