Overview

"Fantastic Experience" Fast rib trips to spectacular Isle of May, sailing from Anstruther. We offer landing trips which give 2 to 3 hours ashore or alternately shorter 2 hour trips which gives plenty of time to view the world renown wildlife around the island from the boat. Osprey is a big 10mtr Rib which has bench seats, comfortable and safe, fully licensed by the MCA and SNH. We operate the boats from the ticket office at the following address. The Middle Pier Shore Street Anstruther KY10 3AB

We try very hard to make it as relaxed as possible especially for people who are a little bit nervous. As you have seen she is a great sea boat and gives you confidence. Thank you very much for your kind words.
