Experience your own private expedition cruise around the stunning west coast of Scotland with expert naturalists to guide you.

We know many of you are fond of boat-based expeditions. They provide a unique way of observing the coastline and an opportunity to see some remarkable wildlife at difficult to get to places. This combined with not having to get in a car makes for an exciting yet relaxing experience.

There is no better way to explore this remarkable region than on your own private boat with two expert naturalist guides by your side, a dedicated crew and a superb chef! It’s the perfect recipe for a dream holiday. We will show you the best of the natural world along the Atlantic coast of Scotland and bring you fascinating insights into the wildlife we are experiencing; all at a very high level of comfort.

Simply get your friends together, tell us what you’d like to see and experience and we will design the itinerary. From St Kilda to Islay, searching for Basking Sharks and Minke Whales to eagles and Otters, we can accommodate your desires to deliver your ultimate Hebridean experience. 

This is the perfect solution for an exciting family adventure or a small group of friends who love to travel together in search of the best Scottish wildlife and scenery. With options of different sized vessels (of up to nine guests) you can decide who you want to share your Hebridean expedition with.

The vessels can be chartered for between 5 and 12 days starting and ending in Oban. There are many sheltered anchorages to be found depending on the sea and weather conditions on any given day.

Have a look at our website for suggestions and recommendations for itineraries depending on the season, how much time you have and what your main interests are.
