I would like to thank you all for our amazing time on the Elizabeth G trip to the Outer Hebrides. From boarding to leaving, all the crew went over and above to make our experience so memorable. Chris made sure that every day he took us to places we never thought possible. His knowledge of the islands is superb. Craig worked extremely hard to make sure that he was always at hand so that everything went like clockwork. He was always very supportive of Trish and I. What can I say about Stevies food... better than a 5 star hotel!! Every meal without exception was superb. Nigel, our wildlife expert, taught Trish and I so much. We were so lucky to have seen an orca , seals , dolphins!! We hiked higher, walked further and laughed till we cried. Memories of an adventure that will last forever and friends we have made for life. Thank you Emma for all your help and expertise which made this a trip to remember. Hope to see you all again Raydene x

One of the best holidays we've ever had! The remote overnight anchorages were stunning and our visit to the Shiants was unforgettable! It was a great privilege to visit the bothy and read the visitor's book! We visited amazing, beautiful, wild places that not accessible except by boat! The crew were all fantastic and couldn't do enough for us! Thankyou - we will be back. Jane and John

What a wonderful experience! From the first day to the last there were plenty of opportunities to see iconic Scottish wildlife – from White Tailed Eagles to Dolphins and Minke Whales. Interesting and varied trips ashore highlighted how different the islands are. All this made possible by the crew of Elizabeth G who did everything they could to make sure we all had a fabulous time – Rob, Alexa, Stevie and Kevin – thank you!

Our cruise on the Emma Jane was wonderful., thanks to the crew, Chris, Emma, Laura and Ian. With the careful planning of the captain, Chris, we were able to see everything we had expected. It was all good, and we would recommend the cruise to anyone. We were very comfortable, and enjoyed the company of the crew and the other guests. Thank you!

Hi It has taken some time to get around to writing this review - partly because I moved house 10 days after returning from my adventure! I thought long and hard about 'to go or not to go' and eventually took the plunge finally having chance to set foot on Hirta - the island I had first heard about some 30 years before - it was amazing to be there - and on Canna and Sanday, Harris, Vatersay, Rhum and the rest. The food was incredible and the fact that so much care and attention was taken of individual difficulties and allergies was such a relief as I was never worrying if something I abhorred or could eat would turn up on the table! Our skipper (Chris) and Bosun (Craig) were a wealth of knowledge and information which they shared freely and being allowed into the wheelhouse to see Hirta on the horizon and to be able to find out about lighthouse flashes, shipping lanes, navigation and weather reports was fascinating. I have never seen people work so hard and yet maintain such a pleasant, courteous and helpful manner. I had a wonderful time - basking sharks, Minke whales, dolphin bow racing, sea eagles, puffins and wild otter as well as the wild deer on Rhum - magical! I have come back with a diary and head full of memories and an i pad full of photos as well as the deep desire to save my pennies and adventure off again at some future date. Thank you, thank you for making my dreams come true

A wonderful trip in every way. The Elizabeth G was an attractive ship, and all the crew were superb; knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. We visited a range of very different islands- all unique and beautiful. The wildlife was amazing, and the food delicious. I can't wait to go again in the future.

FAN-TAST-IC. EXCELLENT 10 days, really lucky with the weather on Kilda and Shiants and even luckier with the crew - James Skipper, Yvonne Chef, Emma Bosun and last but not least Linsey as guide. The operation of the Emma G was excellent, food yummy, enthusiastic guide and very hard working bosun. The guests were all quite different but the environment and sheer fun of certain members of crew, no names, but in particular Emma and Yvonne, created a relaxing atmosphere that led to everybody getting on very well. We covered a large distance but visited some wonderful places, the only downside was that long distances had to be covered which meant lesser time ashore. However it was very worthwhile and the communication and daily briefings kept all of us fully informed Can’t wait for next years brochure!

The whole cruise from start to finish was amazing. The crew were attentive, fun, professional, fun, good sports, fun. I could go on. We were very lucky to get two days of sunshine for St Kilda and the Shiants and our timing was impeccable. Thanks James. He remained professional and was great company at dinner. The nightly briefings showed how much thought went into planning where we were to be the next day. Lindsay was great, there was not a minute of the day when she didn't have her eye out for whales, dolphins and birds. We were richly rewarded by having two minky whales swim under our boat. What a sight. We were all a little emotional. Emma our bosun. She was an absolute delight. Hard working and lots of fun. Nothing was too much trouble for her. What a treasure. Lastly but certainly not least. Yvonne, our chef. My husband is still talking about your salmon pie! The food that was produced in your small, rocking kitchen was stunning. I wouldn't have changed a thing. I think everyone on our cruise felt the same. Cheers! Lyndy and Clyde Ronan
