    Your Booking
    We operate a booking system. If passengers turn up without a booking, we will be able to take them out at short notice only if we have boats available.

    We must highlight to you that although we leave a gap of 30 minutes between trips, sometimes, if the booking previous to yours arrives late, or if the boat is held up due to weather conditions, or other navigational or safety issues, then this might impact on your booking time.

    We will do our utmost to make sure that you get out on time but ask your consideration if on the very rare occasion you are held up due to circumstances outside our control.

    Vessel Safety
    All the boats are  fitted with the very latest safety equipment and all of our crew members are fully trained and qualified to meet the requirements of Marine Safety Regulations.

    Departure Point
    All sailings depart  from Kirkibost Pier unless otherwise stated in our timetable, or if you wish to be collected anywhere else at extra cost.

    Please note that Marine Safety Regulations deem that the vessels unsuitable for wheelchairs

    Please note that we reserve the right to cancel even at short notice any boat ride if the weather conditions make the sea state very unsafe to take you out. We cannot control the weather and when this happens common sense must prevail.
