Spindrift Boat Trips

Boat Tour

Portree Harbour, Portree, Isle Of Skye, IV51 9HR

    Come aboard Spindrift for a wildlife watching and island visit. Visit the beautiful Isle of Rona or the Isle of Raasay from Portree pier.

    Bring along a packed lunch for your Rona trip and wear sturdy boots to enjoy the rugged landscape. Visit the ruined settlement at Dry Harbour, take a hike up Meal Arcasaid to the viewpoint and enjoy the views to Skye and the mainland on a clear day.  Church Cave is also accessible and a unique remnant of the old community.

    On Raasay you can stop for lunch at the hotel or visit the local shop.  Take the opportunity to walk up Dun Caan and enjoy more views toward Applecross and to Skye.

    Spindrift is an extremely comfortable boat.  Come aboard and enjoy the passage to your island destination, either from the vantage point of the fly bridge and foredeck or from the comfort and warmth of the saloon. You have the freedom to move about the boat as you wish. Refreshments are available on each trip, free of charge. 

    On your way to the island destination, look out for wildlife including minke whales, white-tailed sea eagles, dolphin, porpoise, basking sharks, seals and numerous species of seabirds including puffins, gannets and skua.

    Make the most of the numerous photographic opportunities, or just sit back and enjoy the ever changing scenery.

    You will return to Portree in good time for dinner, depending on departure times. Perhaps take the opportunity to extend your sea time and enjoy an evening sunset cruise.
