I went on the St. Kilda trip with my 14 year old son.  We are from Los Angeles and were visiting the UK for 3 weeks.  We started in London and did a 2-week road trip through Scotland and Northern Ireland and my son and I both think that the St. Kilda trip was the single best day of our Holiday.  Hiking on St. Kilda and the boat trip around Boreray and the Sea Stacks are awesome!

If you really want to go to “the middle of nowhere” on “the trip of a lifetime”, consider visiting St. Kilda with Sea Harris Boat trips.  The trip takes close to 3 hours each way, even in a high-speed boat.  The archipelago is one of the most important bird sanctuaries in the UK.  And St. Kilda is a look back into pasts human habitation.  Skipper Seumas Morrison and first mate John do everything they can to ensure your comfort and safety.  But prepare yourself wisely for 3 hours on the open sea!

After a bumpy boat ride we arrived on Hirta. The weather was good and we had an amazing time wandering around the village. The trip round the sea stacs where the gannets, fulmars, puffins and other birds nest was awesome. To think that people climbed the stacs to gather birds and eggs is unbelievable. one of the "100 things to do before you die" trip.

Fantastic hosts for St Kilda trip. The boat is wee enough to get in amongst the islands and see the sea birds close up and hear facts and stats from John. A wonderful day!

A wonderful trip on 19th July, Hirta being fascinating but for me as a keen bird watcher Boreray and the stacs was the highlight (although I did manage to photo the St Kilda wren). Seamus took the boat in really close for great views of the tens of thousands of seabirds and John gave an excellent commentary. Just reviewing the hundreds of photos I took will be a labour of love.

We can't praise Seumas and John highly enough for their part in the incredible experience that is St Kilda. June 24th 2013 is a day we will always remember, ....and yes - the ginger cake IS as good as everyone says it is!
We will certainly recommend Sea Harris to all our friends - who after having seen all our great photos will surely want to make the journey for themselves!

  MICHAEL  KEY from LIVERPOOL (St. Kilda, and The Shiants) message 68 on Date: 2013-07-03 08:42
Early this year, in my 70s, I was aprehensive about making a trip to St. Kilda.  Then, Alastair Walker, the father-in-law of my eldest nephew, who had made the trip earlier offered to come with me.

To say we enjoyed the trips to St. Kilda, and the following day to The Shiants, would be an understatement.  We were so exhilarated by the experience of both trips that we have resolved to do them again.

No photo can do St. Kilda and The Shiants justice.  One has to see them for real. Awsome.

An absolutely brilliant trip - it still feels quite surreal. St Kilda and the stacks are unsurpassed in their beauty, and the history of the place and the people is amazing. Thank you to Seamus for his help, and a big thanks to John and Innes on the day for getting us over there, excellent patter and for putting up with our mild hysteria!

Sarah, Fiona and Joan

What a perfect day and what an adventure!
We went to St. Kilda on 10th April, having thought we wouldn't make it because of weather.
Thank you so much to Seamus and John for all the care and attention.
We feel part of a special club - those who have had tea and ginger cake in St. Kilda bay.

The trip out to St Kilda with Sea Harris was a birthday present for my husband and thanks to Seumas and John, it will be an experience that won't be forgotten. We had a fantastic time and Seumas and John were full of information....their care and attention was second to none ( as was the ginger cake !). Thankyou for a most memorable trip.

What a treat this trip was. Every time we turned a corner it got more amazing. Weather was fabulous and we got an April tan!! Visit to the stacs were especially breathtaking and John's stories of the men of St Kilda really helped  us to imagine what they endured to survive. Thanks to Seamas and John for their humour and care and for making this anniversary present very special.

In awe of the place! Walking up to the cliffs looking over to Boreray, gannets and puffins flying about everywhere! So much to explore around the village and going up the hill to the lovers stone. Going around the cliffs and caves in the boat afterwards was great! Well looked after on the boat couldn't feel more at home.

Chris, John and Seumas enabled a lifetime dream to come true on Friday 21st September.
The whole day was perfect from start to finish.  Walking on our own to the top of Conachair and then around the cliffs with only the gannets and wrens for company was superb.  And then followed by a barefoot walk along a pristine beach - sublime! The trip around Stac Lee and Boreray with the gannets wheeling overhead was a fabulous finale.  
Thank you for a truly wonderful, unforgetable experience.

My hubby and I visited St Kilda on Friday 21st September 2012. We were taken care of by Chris who was our skipper that day and John who was his crew. (also made a great cuppa tea and served seamus's mum briliant ginger cake). Once we got to St Kilda we were given 4.5 hours to do as we wished (of course observing health and safety whilst on the islands).  We did what we came out to do and will take back a lot of fond memories of such a special day. thank you all at seaharris.

Ocean glistening with light. Swell swelling.
We thought we had speed until the gannet easily overtook us.
The perfect shape of the islands of Sint Kilda, with the history of these amazing humans.
This skua diving at us, who climbed too close to its young.
The spectacular stacs of Boreray with breeding gannets. Not to speak of all the little black and whites everywhere around us. Becoming one with the birds.

Seumas and Ian brought us to all this beauty. THANKS

A memorable trip by boat to St.Kilda, 'The edge of the world' was an experience i,ll not forget. It was a privilege to visit. The sea stacks covered with thousands of seabirds the swell of the blue sea, along with Village Bay looked amazing in the glorious sunshine. The seasmanship and skill  of skipper Seumus and crewman John was first rate. the sea crossing not for the faint hearted but it must be one of the best boat trips in the British Isles. Thanks to all at Seaharris.

Trip to St Kilda on the 10th of July was the highlight of our holiday.  It is an amazing place. Loved the trip round Boreray and the Stacks on the way back - a must for any bird watcher.Will definately be going again.  Added bonus of a cup of tea and a bit of cake on the boat too.
