A 4 night cruise around the whale and dolphin hotspot that is the North Minch, one of the best cetacean watching areas in Europe! There will also be plenty of seabirds, seals, eagles and maybe a basking shark or two if we are lucky.

DATES: Mon 1st August to Fri 5th August 2022

The perfect Scottish cruise to relax on and watch the amazing wildlife of the Hebrides, and in particular its populations of whales, dolphins and porpoise. Then there are the beautiful and isolated Shiant Isles which you will visit, white tailed eagles, seals and of course the amazing land and seascapes on the horizon every day.

You will anchor in quiet and remote sea lochs and bays, listening to the sounds of seals splashing and spotting red deer coming down from the hills in the evenings. During the day, sit on one of our two raised observation decks and our experienced guide will help you spot the wildlife that lives and visits this stunning part of the planet.

You can even get involved with our citizen science efforts on board by logging detailed sightings of cetaceans and taking photographs to be used for ID purposes. The perfect slow travel experience with small group sizes of only up to 8 passengers on our converted fishing boat, the Monadhliath, it's a great way to make new friends or to enjoy this experience with your family or friends.
