Took the fast boat to Isle of May. A lot of fun. Passed the normal boat on the way out. Saw lots of wildlife - seals on shore and in the water. Lots of puffins, terns, gulls.

I grinned from ear to ear all the way out and all the way back from the Isle for May! Roy is a fantastic, highly experienced Skipper and so there were no worries even though it got a wee bit choppy! Absolutely LOVED every minute!...More

If you want to visit May but think the Princess may be a little pedestrian for your tastes this is very much the way to go. Skipper was top notch, professional knowledgeable and fun. We will be over again, and I'm sure we will use...More
