About "Guide"
"Guide" is a 55ft wooden build by J N Miller of St Monnans in 1954.She was originally a pilot boat for the River Humber, then she was taken to Orkney where she was used as a passenger tour boat before arriving in Macduff in spring 2011 to start a new career on the Moray Firth. "Guide" is on the Historic Ship Register and the certificate can be seen onboard.

"Guide" has a license for up to 40 persons (from April – October) and up to 12 persons (during winter months). The boat is fully insured, equipped and certified to meet the safety requirements of the MCA (Maritime and Coastguard Agency).

Lifejackets are provided, but please remember to bring warm clothing and footwear as it can get cold out at sea, even on a warm day!
