The peace and relaxation amidst beautiful scenery was special. Pat Long

Visiting the Treshnish isles and seeing the playful puffins at work. Burrowing their holes and flying to be near their friends; spotting a centuries-old tree in the edge of a mountain; fingal’s cave surrounded by dozens of curious porpoises … for me, personally, it felt as if many of the locales we visited were unchartered as most often, there wouldn’t be any other boat or human being in sight - - the entire experience was so incredibly peaceful that i gained a great appreciation for not only gorgeous scotland, but the world in which we live. I appreciated learning from martin how many of the sea maps he followed have been nearly unchanged since they were first pioneered and surveyed by skilled technicians who lived almost a world ago - - i was deeply moved by everything i experienced and learned from our crew and my surroundings. Margi English & Brett Sales
