With your local skipper's excellent knowledge of the area, you will have the opportunity to see the wide variety of wildlife that inhabits the enchanted Scottish coastline. Previous wildlife cruises have saw whales, dolphins, porpoises and seals. There are always plenty of birds to be seen nesting and feeding undisturbed in their natural habitat including puffins, gannets, guillemots, skuas, razorbills, terns and even the white-tailed sea eagle.
Fishing trips are also available, offering the chance to catch a wide range of fish. Previous hauls have produced plentiful numbers of mackerel, pollack, coalie and ling (a very tasty fish related to the cod). Other fish to catch include haddock, whiting, plaice, dab, lemon sole, pout fish and various species of wrasse, dog fish and skate. No previous experience is necessary and guidance will be given by the skipper and his crew. All gear is supplied free and full day charters are available on request.
The skipper, Jody McNeil, has been around the sea and boats all his life, and has worked as a fisherman for over 15 years. During his time at sea, Jody has been privileged to witness extensive sea life in its natural environment and it is this, plus the amazing scenery that he wants to share with you on your North West Cruise.
