"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.

Had a wonderful trip out on the fourth. Perfect for anyone who gets a thrill out of speed and water. My husband and I have been out a few times and have enjoyed each trip immensely.
