 6.50am: Meet at Stein Jetty, Skye for a briefing prior to 7.00am departure.

Our fast and comfortable boat, Infinity will take you across the Minch and through the Western Isles, arriving at St Kilda after 85 miles and around 4 hours later (3 hours 30 mins on good days).

On arrival in Village Bay, we will make the short transfer by Zodiac dinghy to the main St Kilda island of Hirta. We will have approximately 4 hours free to explore the Island. The St Kilda museum, school and Church provide a fascinating insight into the way of life of the St Kildans prior to their evacuation in 1930. The remains of the village, the graves and 2nd World War gun are all open to view.

A guided walk may be arranged at a cost of £5 per person. Please add this when booking your trip.

Upon leaving Hirta, we will cruise to Boreray and its Sea Stacs with their impressive cliffs and bird life.
