May — June

Join us aboard our historic wooden sailing vessel for an exploration of the beautiful nooks and crannies on Shetland’s east side on a sailing day trip from Shetland’s capital, Lerwick.

Trip Duration: 1 day, 9.30am - 4.30pm

Dates available: Monday 9th May & Saturday 25th June

Board & Disembark: Lerwick, Shetland

Boarding the Swan at 9.30am, your day will begin with a comprehensive safety briefing including how to work the lines on deck and set the sails. We will then put this into practice, enjoying getting hands-on with the sailing as you head out on a discovery of beautiful bays and quiet coastlines not often seen from the sea.

With a range of picturesque ‘nooks and crannies’ to choose from, our exact itinerary will be decided on the day, to make the best use of the weather, wind, and our incredible wildlife and scenery.

You will be well entertained during your trip by taking an active role in sailing the Swan, including hauling on ropes, taking a turn on the helm, and keeping a lookout, as well as spotting all the wildlife on offer.

If weather and time allows, we may anchor in a sheltered spot to enjoy a well earned lunch of soup and sandwiches, and also launch the dinghy to go ashore in some locations.

We should return to Lerwick around 4.30pm.

Included in voyage

  • Sailing instruction
  • Lunch, tea, coffee and biscuits.
  • Life jacket and safety line.
  • There are basic waterproofs onboard, however you may feel more comfortable in your own wet weather gear.

Please note: You may need to board and/or disembark the Swan via a vertical pier ladder. Ensure you wear sensible footwear, with good grips, and warm clothing, and don't forget your binoculars and camera to catch all the wildlife on offer.
