Scottish Cruises: 

A Unique Way To Discover Western Scotland

We take our passengers (couples, singles, groups and families) from Dunstaffnage Marina, near Oban which is the gateway to the majestic Highlands and Islands of West Scotland, to the Outer and Inner Hebrides - beautiful, unspoiled coastlines of spectacular sea lochs, stunning Hebridean landscapes and incredible wildlife. In the summer months the days are long and the nights are short allowing even more time to enjoy the wonderful wildlife and scenery. 

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, play golf, visit famous malt whisky distilleries or just go ashore and explore.

We see incredible Scottish 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!

A Small Ship Cruising Holiday With A Difference

Our three small ships offer 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 our unique small ships. 

Our Scottish cruises will take you through a pristine environment, spectacularly rich in wildlife and breathtaking mountain and seascapes. A cruise aboard St Hilda, Seahorse II or Gemini Explorer is a voyage of discovery.

Book Your Scottish Cruise

Our 2021 calendar and our 2022 calendar is now availableAny un-booked cruise in the online calendar can be booked for a private charter. As soon as a cruise has just a single booking a private charter is no longer possible for that date - so early booking for a private charter is recommended.

Book The Whole Boat

All our Sea Adventures are perfect for family cruising holidays 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 especially enjoy fishing, sea kayaking, swimming, snorkelling, learning basic seamanship, hoisting the sails, rock pooling and the dinghy trips.

Solo Travellers

We host many solo travellers. We have single cabins available on Seahorse II and Gemini Explorer and various cabin-sharing options in twin cabins on all three small ships.
