My husband and I went on the two hour trip. We booked it the same day but at busy times I'd book in advance. Andrew from Stardust was very informative throughout the journey, giving details about the Sea eagles, Seals and Dolphins. We managed to see two pairs of Sea Eagles and Andrew encouraged them closer with some fresh fish.... More

Peter the skipper took us out and managed to find us sea eagles, seals, porpoises as well as many heron, shags and gillimots etc. He was always on the look out for wildlife we had not spotted our selves. He has photos to help point out where you need to look for nests etc and told us lots of information... More

Would never recommend going on a trip with Stardust boat trips. Says on their page they do all year round trips which is abselutely not true! Booked a trip with them while on holiday and had it confirmed with the money taken after Xmas as a present for the whole family and friends only to be left waiting outside by... More

2pm boat trip on a cold early November day. We didn't need to book in advance and had an enjoyable trip! Sadly the seals weren't on the rocks but we did see a couple swimming. Incredible views of 4 sea eagles and we saw 2 golden eagles above the cliffs.

I really enjoyed the boat trip out of the Portree Harbour and around the nearest island. Our First Mate was quite knowledgeable on and shared with us how to spot the Golden Tail Eagle. It was a beautiful day for a trip on the water and especially lovely to see Skye from a different vantage point, the water.

Went on this boat trip not expecting too much as we know better that to raise expectations on Wildlife spotting however they made it very easy for us to spot the sea eagles and we're very accommodating on board. Then as if by magic there were hundred of dolphins swimming alongside the boat and jumping around and under us. It... More

We really enjoyed it for what it was. We saw sea eagles from miles away, they were really difficult to see. We saw seals and that was really cute. Waited too long at stops to stare at the really far away wildlife. But see to be honest it was nice, nice boat ride seeing the stunning scenery and parts of... More

Sailed on the boat skippered by Peter who gave us a voyage to remember. He was very informative & made sure we got the best from our trip. After leaving harbour we soon stopped to get our first glimpse of the sea eagles. Two were perched high up on a cliff face & Peter made sure we all knew where... More

We went on the 2pm sailing. My husband and I are birds of prey nerds and this trip didn't let us down! Throw in some cool sea birds, mind blowing scenery and harbor seals, it exceeded our expectations.
