Why we are different

What makes us Different

Do you want to sail with the best? The oldest and most experienced company offering something genuinely different and better than the rest? We think that’s us, and these are the reasons why …

We Let You Choose

Your Choice — we offer a choice of daily Offshore Whale and Dolphin Cruises or Inshore Wildlife Cruises.

First for Whales and Dolphins

We sail daily to offshore whale and dolphin feeding grounds.

We have a long and proven track record of whale and dolphin sightings – we are counted amongst the top boats in Scotland!

We have a history of encounters with rare and unusual species and moments of awe-inspiring animal behaviour.

We let you judge – we record our wildlife encounters in public on our Facebook page.

The Spirit of Exploration

We are not one of those companies which takes you on a cruise and just hopes something interesting turns up. We have years of experience and local knowledge which we use actively to search for the great creatures of the sea and the region’s wonderful sea birds.

We visit and continuously monitor the key offshore whale and dolphin feeding grounds. We maintain daily contact with the local fishing fleet operating in offshore waters. We know what’s out there!

We can’t guarantee that we will encounter whales and dolphins on every trip but you can be confident that when you sail with us you have given yourself the best chance of finding them.

Commitment to Conservation

We are committed to sustainable and responsible wildlife encounters.

We are an accredited Wildlife Safe (WiSe) Operator. We are one of the region’s main contributor of whale and dolphin data to the Sea Watch Foundation and we are proud to be a Sea Watch recommended boat operator.

Nick Davies, head of our company, is a researching marine zoologist and was invited to participate in the development of the Scottish Marine Wildlife Watching Code.

Unique Voyages

We make regular cruises to the remote and magical Shiant Islands.

We offer specialist cruises, including Pelagic Bird Cruises which use Nick’s expertise in offshore birds to bring you close to the numerous and diverse species found in Hebridean waters.

A Friendly Welcome

Our clients always come first. We offer cruises to suit everyone, from families and groups to single passengers.

We are always delighted to offer advice and make recommendations to ensure you get the best possible wildlife experience.
