What a treat. Staffa was wonderful but picnicing with Puffins on Lunga was the most special treat anyone could ask for. The 2 hours flew by. Seeing the seals and the 2 White Tailed Eagles on the return leg was the icing on the cake....More

Had a great trip to Staffa ona very pleasant day. The boat was comfortable, landing on Staffa no problem. The only downside was that dogs are allowed on the island.

Our trip to Staffa and Lunga (Treshnish Isles) was excellent. We were able to land on Staffa despite a swell at the jetty - great skill by the skipper - and walk into Fingal's Cave. The experience on Lunga was wonderful, with hundreds of puffins...More

I have read some of the bad reviews before our trip as anyone would I suppose and some of what I read was really silly like "The receptionist wasn't friendly enough"... Not really a true reflection of the trip on the boat is it? Anyway,...More

Drive to Ulva Ferry (having pre-arranged that they have room on the boat) and get their boat for the 1 hour trip to Staffa. The boat looks into Fingal's Cave, and once you land you walk along a walkway with handrail to go inside. You...More

We're coming to Mull, staying near Loch Ba, for the last week of June. There are 6 of us plus a small and very well behaved poodle. I'd like to book a trip for us all to see Fingall's Cave and maybe puffins and Iona too. Is this a possibility. Should I book now or wait til I'm there? Thanks, Sandie Ps.... I really want to show off my beloved Scotland to my guests !

We had to reschedule from the Tuesday to the Friday as weather was bad but they advised 2 days in advance so they keep a watch on the weather.
Hi, Is there parking for customers vehicles at the departure point in Ulva Ferry? Many thanks.
