HOW TO BOOK DURING COVID-19 REGULATIONS
Scottish Government regulations require a social distance of 2 metres between social bubble groups on boats.
Our boat is the largest in the area and big enough to accommodate up to 4 social bubble groups outside in the fresh air with 2 metres between each group and ourselves. Please book online following the instructions below.
If you are a single passenger, please phone us on 01852300203 before booking. Our booking system does not accept single bookings, however we regularly have single spaces available.
COVID-19 REGULATIONS DO NOT ALLOW PEOPLE INSIDE THE WHEELHOUSE OR USE OF THE TOILET. There are public toilets available at Cuan Ferry. PLEASE BRING WATERPROOF JACKETS AND TROUSERS, WOOLY HATS AND PLENTY OF WARM CLOTHES. You are welcome to bring food and hot drinks, binoculars and cameras. We serve hot drinks and provide wrapped biscuits.
For short periods, such as when casting off ropes, our wildlife guide will need to be near guests back to face and we ask everybody to wear face masks at such times. Please observe the 2-metre distance from other groups and sanitise hands before boarding. Sanitiser is available on the pontoon and boat. The boat will be cleaned and sanitised between each trip. The leader of each group will be asked to confirm that nobody has Covid-19 symptoms.
We have our own secluded private parking and pontoon.
Please understand that we may have to cancel due to weather or insufficient numbers.
