"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.

Inflatable power boat, seats 12 + 2 crew. Led by experienced, competent local skipper who knows about the island and his boats! The 1-hour trip gets to the island in about 20 minutes with about 20 minutes around and 20 minutes back to harbour. Other...More

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.

I would thoroughly recommend this trip. Our skipper was clearly extremely experienced and his pre-trip chat went a long way to reassure an anxious 16 year old daughter. The boat is very stable. You will get wet but you are given full waterproofs. The Isle...More
