I felt that I was on a gourmet tour and it was often hard not to waddle out onto deck with how much we were given
We take our passengers to the majestic west coast of Scotland: the Outer and Inner Hebrides and Argyll - beautiful, unspoiled coastlines of spectacular sea lochs, stunning Highland landscapes and incredible wildlife.
We anchor in the most sheltered, idyllic places, in some of Scotland's world famous islands such as Skye, St Kilda, Mull, Jura, Islay, Staffa and Iona where you can observe the wildlife, fish, swim in the sea lochs, visit famous malt whisky distilleries or just go ashore and explore.
We see incredible wildlife - soaring sea and golden eagles, basking sharks, minke and killer whales, porpoises, dolphins, myriads of seabirds and common and grey seals. We have even seen a breaching humpback whale!
The St Hilda offers you a truly unique experience. People of all ages can learn about the sea but also find out about nature and explore the local marine environment while enjoying the exhilaration of cruising the wonderful west coast of Scotland on a fine, sturdy ex-tall ship.
Our small ship cruises will take you through a pristine environment, spectacularly rich in wildlife and incredible mountain and seascapes. A Scottish cruise on St Hilda is truly a voyage of discovery.
Since we started St Hilda Sea Adventures, we have noticed increasing interest from our guests for extending our cruising range to visit the wild islands and remote anchorages of the Inner and Outer Hebrides. For easy access to these spectacular islands and lochs in 2017 we have decided to base ourselves during the high season in the Isle of Mull, in Tobermory Bay, off the picturesque village of Tobermory.
St Hilda Sea Adventures is perfect for a family cruising holiday in Scotland. Families and groups of friends often charter the whole boat. The school holidays book up very quickly: if you have a special date in mind, don't delay. We operate a system of flexible booking for small groups of friends and families who can choose the start date and length of trip, always assuming there is availability. Children on board love the nature activities we organise for them.
We receive fantastic feedback from our passengers who think that the St Hilda, and our cruising areas, offer something truly unique at very good value.
