Small-ship cruising in the Hebrides and west coast of Scotland is a growing phenomenon. More and more people want to try a small-ship cruise therefore we are having an Open Day on April 22nd to show the public our vessels and answer any queries they might have. In the meantime here are five good reasons to take a small-ship cruise with Hebrides Cruises, especially if wildlife is your interest.
1. Wildlife is our speciality. We are the only cruising company in the Hebrides that has a dedicated specialist Wildlife Guide on board and who accompanies guests on shore to find and identify wildlife for our guests. The rest of the crew are also very passionate and knowledgeable about the wildlife, natural environment, culture and history of the Hebrides.
2. A choice of accommodation: Our two vessels provide the choice of a touch of luxury onboard Proud Seahorse, or excellent value onboard Elizabeth G. Whichever accommodation you prefer, you will enjoy the same level of care, hospitality and expertise from our crews.
3. Qualified Crew: We have the highest crew to guest ratio in small boat cruising in Scotland. All our cruises have four experienced and highly qualified crew members, the Skipper, Chef, Wildlife Guide and Bosun, to look after our 10 guests on board. The local knowledge, skills and experience of our crew ensure that our guests are in safe hands and have the holiday of a lifetime.
4. Gourmet food onboard: Our Chef provides delicious meals from the best of fresh local Scottish produce, including scallops hand dived by the Skipper! Be prepared to be pampered aboard our cruises
5 Solo travellers at no supplement: Each cruise aboard Elizabeth G offers 2 cabins for the private use of solo travellers at no additional supplement
