We’re looking forward to welcome you on one of our cruises in 2024.

As always we’ll start our season at end-April / early-May with cruises towards the Shiant Islands.

Not only are the Shiant Islands an amazing place to visit for the views, but from mid-April till mid-August this location is one of the most important nesting sites for many birds that visit our area during the summer. During a visit you’ll see over thousands of birds including Guillemots, Razorbills, Puffins, Kittewakes and Fulmars. Chances on seeing the great White-tailed Eagle are also very high! The Shiant Islands also houses Grey and Common Seals.

From mid-May onwards we’ll be running more cruises focussed on Whales and Dolphins as their numbers increase in the waters of the North Minch.

As we cruise the waters looking for wildlife, we have a chance to see Harbour Porpoises, Common Dolphins and Minke Whales. If we’re really lucky, we might even see other species as well, like Risso’s Dolphins, White-Beaked Dolphins, Humpback Whales, Fin Whales and Killer Whales, … and maybe even a Basking Shark or Sunfish.

Glittering Waters

From Gairloch, we look out over the fringes of the Atlantic Ocean. On the horizon are the misty shapes of the Outer Hebrides. To the South, we see the majestic peaks of the Isle of Skye.
