We booked the lunchtime seal-island tour first week in July. Loved the trip, helped by stunning weather. Plenty of room for social distancing and having just finished walking the West Highland Way we were glad of the oportunity to sit down! The skipper provided a very informative commentry as we went along (including an obligatory Haggis two-short-legs, two-long-legs story) and we had plenty of time to view the seals before turning around. Would recommend this trip to anyone that wants to view the amazing scenery around Fort William including stunning views of Ben Nevis and would like to learn a little more about the loch and its wildlife.

Excellent cruise on Saturday 26 June 2021 down Loch Linnhe from Fort William. Scenery was spectacular on a bright sunny day. We did the 1 1/2 hour Seal Island cruise. Boat was not too busy and we were able to move around to take photographs etc. Commentary was just right with some useful information about the surrounding area, the salmon and mussel farms and Seal Island and, of course, the seals. Not overbearing and with a touch of humour. A baby seal had been born on the island that morning which added to the interest. The bar was open downstairs; a little pricy but to be expected.

We would thoroughly recommend this cruise.

90 minutes trip on the lock to the salmon farm, mussels farm and seal island. It was a reasonably warm day on the pier but became very cold on deck as soon as we set off. We were prepared but many weren’t and moved to more sheltered areas or the enclosed lounge and bar. We stayed on deck and it was considerably warmer after we’d been to our most southern point and then headed north back to the pier. Good commentary and views of Ben Ness.

Amazing boat journey! Had lovely weather, was able to see the summit of ben nevis, really relaxing, amazing views, got to see plenty of seals basking in the sun and even a couple of babies and one learning to swim! They were conciderate towards the seals and didn't get too close. If you look overboard you can also see loads of jellyfish! If you do one thing whilst in fort william do this seal cruise!
