A Wildlife Guide on every cruise, with escorted shore trips

The amazing wildlife on land, sea and air in the Hebrides is not always accommodating enough to pop up when we want it to! Our Skippers and Wildlife Guides are expert at reading the sea and landscape, backed by years of experience and knowledge in finding and identifying wildlife. We are the only Scottish small-ship cruise company that offers accompanied on-shore guided trips, with a specialist Wildlife Guide on board every cruise. Apart from the wildlife, there is lots more to experience and discover on our cruises; from local history and culture and spectacular scenery to fabulous food, with plenty of time to relax and enjoy life onboard.
