I was gifted a trip to May island and it was certainly a trip worth taking. We took the fast boat out and reached the island in just under 40 minutes. The captain stopped alongside the seal colony, which encouraged the seals to come and investigate us. He was knowledgeable about the bird species and as on right on cue... More

Had a fabulous trip on the Osprey out to the Isle of May. The captain was very knowledgeable and friendly. He got a great balance between making the boat ride exhilarating enough for the teenage boys yet still feeling safe enough for mum! Saw more puffins than we could have imagined- flying over our heads, swimming in the sea and... More

Had such a blast going out to the Isle of May ! The journeys there and back were fab and fast and iwould reccommed getting this boat instead of the more traditional May Princess if your looking for a bit of fast fun (but good for all ages and still very practical)! The Isle was beautiful and calm. Had the... More

This was a really good fun trip on the 12 seat high horse powered rib Osprey. We left at 2 pm and after approximately 30 minutes arrived on the Isle of May for an afternoon of exploring, which was a really amazing experience. This island is steeped in ancient and modern history, and a sea bird sanctuary. We were there... More

My husband booked this trip for six of us, ages 8 to 75. We had no idea what we were getting into, and when the captain brought out head to toe waterproof suits and life preservers, we almost refused to go. First, the waterproofs were all clean, and fresh, so we didn't mind having to wear them. The ride out... More

We can highly recommend the Coastal Dash trip, which we took from Anstruther in calm sea conditions last Sunday. The advance online booking was very straightforward, and was on the Osprey fast RIB/Zodiac boat - led by Roy. We chose the trip as we wanted to introduce our 4 year old and 8 year old children to a faster boat... More

Fantastic trip on the Osprey today with Captain Roy who was more than accommodating. He gave us great information on the island and even guided the boat into a cave for a sneaky peak. Would highly recommend this to anyone. Will definitely be going back next year to see the puffins!
