Sailing Information for May Princess

Almost all of our bookings are made through the online system, and please be aware during the middle Summer months we can be fully booked for a few weeks ahead at times. General enquires can be made by emailing us at or calling us on 07957 585200 between 8am and 7pm, if we are not available, please leave a short message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We also have a ticket kiosk alongside the boat located on the Middle Pier at Anstruther harbour, (Postcode, KY10 3AB) and it is open one hour before each sailing and most afternoons between noon and 4pm. If places are still available tickets can be purchased on the day for that sailing or for any future dates, and we accept all major credit cards, debit cards and cash at the ticket office.

We provide two different trips, our regular and long-established May landing Trip, (MLT) lasts for 4.5 to 5 hours and includes 2.5 to 3 hours on the island to explore and enjoy the scenery and the wildlife. The exact time is determined by the tide and weather conditions and gangways are provided both at Anstruther and the Isle of May.

Prices are, Adult £38, Concession (Over 65 / Student / 16 and 17years) £33, Child (ages 3 - 15 years) £18, Under 3 years free

We have another trip option during May and June, (these are the two months when Nature Scot who issue the landing licence and manage the Island insist on one day each week with no visitors to carry out important research work on the seabirds). This is a shorter, non landing sail round the island trip called a May Cruise Around, (MCA) and it lasts for around 2 hours 15 minutes. This trip is ideally suited for anyone in the area that can't get on the landing trip because we are fully booked, for people who do not have the time to take part in the longer trip or for any other reason would just prefer a shorter trip. You still get close alongside the island to enjoy the scenery and experience the wildlife, especially the seabirds at the times we will be operating them, which is most Tuesdays during the two months of May and June.

Prices are,
Adult £28, Concession (Over 65 / Student / 16 and 17 years) £24, Child (ages 3 - 15 years) £ 14, Under 3 years free.

Please be careful when making a booking that you select the correct trip. Both trips include a full commentary, identifying the wildlife, history, lighthouses etc and a sail round the majestic cliffs.
