Friendly and helpful crew. Great support to people with luggage. Well organised loading with human chains on the steep steps at St Mary's, the main hub for the islands. A varied programme for off island visits. A reliable boat!!

Lovely new boat, helpful staff and a very simple service to use. Fully recommend taking the Western Rocks excursion which is great as the skipper is so knowledgeable. We were also accompanied by the IoS wildlife Trust who were able to identify everything we saw.
