Explore the Inner Hebrides and the Firth of Clyde

A voyage to experience the rugged beauty of the Inner Hebrides and the jaw-dropping scenery of the Firth of Clyde. Join a small group on an adventure that starts in the Gateway to the Scottish Isles; the picturesque port town of Oban. With a blend of fascinating ancient ruins and vibrant Scottish culture, the town has become known as the Seafood Capital of Scotland. Western Scotland is a rich marine ecosystem which offers fantastic seafood and wildlife watching from the Sea Eagles on Mull to the dolphins and Minke Whales that cruise the deep sounds between the islands. Due to the prolific life under the surface and hundreds of miles of remote coastlines, the Western Isles, Inner and Outer Hebrides and mainland lochs are great places to spot seals, otters, minke and larger whales, basking sharks and dolphins.

The mountains provide inaccessible eyries for sea eagles, golden eagles, choughs, peregrine falcons and the cliffs are homes to many large breeding colonies of seabirds like gannets and puffins.
Islay, Jura and Mull

As you head further north the landscape changes, with dramatic highland and island views dominating the seascape. You will have the option to anchor in pretty bays on the islands and visits ashore to explore will be possible. With beautiful sunsets and long evenings, sitting on deck in the evening light anchored in a small bay, is something not to be missed.

All the cabins have bunks and a space to store your personal gear. You will be sharing a cabin with up to 5 other people depending on which cabin you are in so it is important to keep your personal space clean and tidy. We provide sheets and pillows for your bunk. You will need to bring a sleeping bag. Please take care when we are at sea to properly stow all items in your cabin. Even the smallest item can cause injury, or become damaged. All cabins have a sink and have a radiator to keep your cabin warm on those colder days and nights.

There are UK plug sockets in all the cabins. We ask that you do not leave items charging or plugged in when you are not in the cabin as this causes a fire risk.

  • All meals on board – including daily breakfast, lunch and evening meal
  • Refreshments throughout the day
  • If you have any special dietary requirements it is we need to know this prior to the voyage in order that we can try to accommodate your requirements in the planned menus.

I’ve never been sailing before and I’m worried about not knowing what to do.

The majority of people who sail with us have never sailed before. Don’t worry! The crew will explain things and guide you through everything you need to know to be able to sail the boat. You will get the opportunity to learn lots of new skills and have fun at the same time.

Where will we go?

This totally depends on wind and weather, and the itinerary for the voyage. It’s no good planning to go somewhere if the wind is in exactly the wrong direction – or if the forecast says the wind would be wrong for coming back!

What if I get ill?

At least one of the staff will be trained in dealing with illness or injury at sea; and we’ll get you to a doctor ashore as quickly as possible if necessary. You do need to tell us in advance about any condition you already have. We’ve had people on the boat with anything from mild asthma to serious medical conditions. Bring any medication, inhalers (and spares) you need – and tell the staff what you are taking. We need to know of any serious medical conditions before you book to ensure we can provide you with the best experience possible.
