COVID-19 Notice

It is with great sadness but we must announce the temporary closure of Stonehaven Sea Safari. COVID-19 and the government’s recent advice and restrictions on travel and social contact made the decision inevitable. We have a responsibility and duty of care to you our customers, our friends and people who work with us and the close community in which we all live.  We are determined to re-open as soon as possible and we will review weekly.

All our boats are ready for the season and our on line booking will be available as soon as we are able to safely operate. Our staff have worked hard to make sure we are ready to go and are looking forward to seeing you in Stonehaven soon.

To our customers old and potential, please keep safe.  We will be contacting all our customers who have bookings with us explaining refund or re-scheduling options.

The Buchanan Family

The Buchanan family operated fishing boats for 5 generations from the Firth of Forth until Andrew settled with his wife Rachael in the North East 20 years ago. The sea is in their blood and since then their family of 4 boys have grown up enjoying this amazing seashore and rich diversity of the Kincardine coastline in their own boat. With a desire to share this well kept secret and allow others the chance to view this stunning coastline the idea for Stonehaven Sea Safari was born and along with it came 4 Brothers……

4 Brothers is a custom built British RIB which uses modern technology to transport you safely at speed to some of the most dramatic coastline on the East Coast of Scotland. She is very manoeuvrable and whisper quiet when running slowly amongst birds, seals and dolphins. 4 Brothers is much bigger than a similar type pleasure boat and built to handle the North Sea. You can be assured that with the years of boatbuilding experience from Ribcraft, and the reliability of two 300hp Suzuki outboards, combined with our expert local knowledge we have the best possible platform for our trips. Our crew and skippers (2 of whom are RNLI helmsman) hold all the relevant qualifications to ensure your safety at all times.
