Had a beautiful day weather-wise for our trip to the May Isle but even in less clement times this is a great trip out on a well run boat. Informative commentary, tea/coffee/snacks available throughout and toilets onboard too. Loved this trip and would recommend it...More

We had an amazing afternoon at isle of may! The weather wasn't great but we still saw so many puffins and other birds, as well as some seals, the nature on the isle is spectacular. The boat ride was comfortable and the staff was friendly.

Great weather for our trip out and for most of the time on the island of May. Wet return! May Princess serves the purpose and had a friendly crew but lacks shelter for a good few of the passengers. The island itself, well, maybe there...More
