Small Boat Cruising Holiday - Private Charter

Private Charter

The St Hilda (maximum of six guests),  Seahorse II (maximum of eleven or twelve guests) or Gemini Explorer (maximum of seven or eight guests) can be privately chartered which is a memorable way to enjoy that extra special holiday or celebrate those very special events such as birthdays and anniversaries.

Any 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 essential.

Private, mini cruise, charters come with our full hospitality package, which includes the onboard skipper and chef.

Family Cruising Holiday In Scotland - Whole Boat Charter

Family cruises during the school holidays are very popular and book up very quickly, so if you have a special date in mind, please contact us. Children of all ages love a small boat cruising holiday on board St Hilda, Seahorse II or Gemini Explorer - every day is a new adventure, often learning new skills and with activities on offer to find out about the environment and wildlife.

Charter For Groups

There is simply nothing that is as much fun as relaxing, dining, travelling the islands and lochs of the Hebrides and just generally messing about on a lovely boat with your friends. Choose your own itinerary, stopovers and activities and sail away on your Scottish Hebridean cruise for the trip of a lifetime.


Guests who book for private charter will get a 10% discount on any of our Scottish cruises.

St Hilda Sea Adventures is very aware of the special nature of the environment in which it operates and makes every effort to run the boat in a way that protects the pristine places it visits. Please note that your voyage is weather dependent.  Weather doesn't just mean good or bad weather. There are many considerations such as tidal gates, wind direction and strength, the strength and direction of currents, overfalls, and fetch.
