NEW Small Ship - an ex-Cruising Lifeboat

We have just added a third vessel, Gemini Explorer, to our unique little fleet of vessels!

Our new mini cruise ship is a historic, converted cruising lifeboat that went to sea for days in the Western Approaches. After extensive re-fits and modifications (including a new galley, high bulwarks, viewing top deck for wildlife and relaxing, en-suite accommodation and a well lit saloon), she has been converted to a small cruise ship and today sails as the Gemini Explorer. However, there are parts of the insides of the vessel that have been kept in their original state to give an exciting insight in to role she once played as a cruising lifeboat.

As a mini cruise ship she has voyaged as far away as Greenland and, for the last 10 years, sailed as a charter vessel on the east coast of Scotland. In 2020 after a further refit and upgrade she will be sailing the beautiful islands and sea lochs of Scotland’s west coast as part of St Hilda Sea Adventures little fleet.

Our guests aboard St Hilda are currently on an 8 night whisky cruise. They’re heading towards Islay for a guided whisky tour and today they stopped off at Eileach An Naoimch (one of the many uninhabited islands in the Hebrides) for a very pretty walk.
