My first trip to the Orkneys and first holiday with Remote Adventures. Fantastic few days exploring these ancient Isles on mountain bike and boat.

Mahi was the perfect base for experiencing all the 70 magical islands had to offer, from the pre-historic remains of Skara Brae to a very different Orkney style heavy rock festival. Every day was an adventure as Andy and Sian's knowledge of the area means that they could 'tailor make' the days for every level of experience, fitness and interest.

The combination of sailing , hill walking and mountain biking with a pint of Scarpa Special at the days end was the perfect holiday combination for me so I’m already looking forward to the next 'remote adventure' with such experienced, relaxed and welcoming hosts.

A truly fabulous week with Andy and Sian aboard the Mahi, took a couple of days for Kate to find her sea legs and not sure the day out on a mountain was the cure she had in mind ! However nothing was ever too much effort, great boat great food and even an episode of Black adder !
Highly recommended for a week away from it all doing something very different.

Had a fantastic week of great sailing, great mountain walks, great wildlife spotting, with great hosts, who cooked some great meals. In a nutshell had a great week.
Thoroughly enjoyed the week feeling very safe in some big seas. Shame the weather was not like the following week.
No need to have second thoughts, just book it and enjoy.

Second time on Mahi with Remote Adventures and it won't be the last! An excellent week of sailing, munro bagging and wildlife spotting all washed down with great food and of course the odd drink. Andy and Sian are great company as well as being expert guides whether it be sailing the seas from Ullapool to Cape Wrath or trekking from the shore of the loch to the top of Ben More Assynt or Suilven. And after all that fresh air and exercise, Mahi provided a most comfortable retreat for a good nights sleep.

I had a great time. Foremost I always felt save on the fantastic boat Mahi - and enjoyed exciting Sailing in the Hebrides/Skye/Scotland. Andy and Siân made me feel like a guest and friend. Not to forget the excellent food (and always a hot beverage ready...)

Awesome ! I've enjoyed every bit of the super days on Mahi. Andy and Sîan are really professional in all regards : sailing, cooking , story telling, security and sandwich making I loved discovering the outer Hebrides -Lewis and Harris- as well as the Isle of Skye . We even saw whales and porpoises as well as a fantastic rainbow ... I'll try to come again

It has been a revelation adventuring in the outer Hebrides with Sian and Andy. The trip has been beautifully paced and we have been eating like kings! I leave with the taste to return.

A very memorable trip to a most beautiful part of the world. St Kilda is so atmospheric with a fascinating history.....highly recommended!

The name says it all...... I joined the yacht Mahi in Mallaig in June for a cruise around the Hebrides - a true remote adventure. If your sailing experience has been mainly the English South Coast, or perhaps chartering in the Med, then this is in a different league. No marinas, shore power and fancy restaurants here but instead superb scenery, wildlife, good wind, interesting navigation and a real sense of adventure in the good humoured and capable company of Andy and Sian whose combined sailing and outdoor experience is considerable (including, in Andy's case, an ascent of Ama Dablam!). The Ovni is probably the perfect yacht for this type of trip: solid but swift, seaworthy and comfortable. With its lifting keel it can get into places fixed keel yachts can't, which is the whole point of sailing in this part of the world, and also a significant safety feature. We had a perfect mixture of short island hops and longer passages (out to St Kilda and back); we anchored in the (relative) civilisation of Barra and Canna as well as as the wilds of Scarp and we climbed to every available mountain top. If you get acute anxiety symptoms when you lose you mobile phone signal for longer than five minutes then a trip with Remote Adventures will certainly be the cure.

Andy and Sian are fantastic hosts. They make either the novice or experienced sailor feel very at home. The programs are adjusted based on the clients needs and desires. Oh and the weather!
Food on board is really good and snacks plentiful.
Regarding sailing their splendid yacht. They let you do as much or as little as you like, all with calm support and humour.
A holiday you'll not forget. Recommended

I spent two days with Andy and Sian on the yacht on the Norfolk coast. We were based in Wells-next-the-Sea (a really fantastic fishing village) but did take the yacht out to sea too! Andy and Sian were great company and we had a really good time. We explored along the Norfolk coast on bicycles, including Blakerley (to the east of Wells), another superb fishing village. Andy and Sian’s yacht is great and if you book a trip with them I feel sure you will not be disappointed. Enjoy!
