Seal Trips

Passengers on the Sula Bheag

Our seal trips are unique because, unlike other boat trip operators who may promise you will see seals on every trip, we don’t. No-one can guarantee this but we guarantee that you will get the trip for free if there are no seals.

As the longest established boat trip operator in Skye & Lochalsh, we know there are times when the seals will have simply disappeared. There could be many reasons — high tide, canoes chasing them off or they have just gone elsewhere; that’s nature in the wild.

You will get a warm and friendly welcome from our experienced and knowledgeable skipper and crew, great commentary, and one that children will love.

A Day with the Seals and Calum and Chris sealed this trip in our hearts for ever

My boy had a fab day watching the seals and the beautiful picturesque ride on the boat. If in Plockton a ride worth every penny you spend . . .

What We Will See

No two trips are exactly the same, but you will always get unrivalled opportunities to photograph common harbour seals, occasional grey seals and otters. Many species of sea birds, eider ducks, heron, arctic tern, guillemots, shag, cormorant, oyster catcher, sea eagle and even puffins early in the season. We are seeing more dolphins and porpoise, which are becoming more regular visitors.

The trip will take you past Duncraig Castle and Heron Island and below the famous Kyle Railway Line.

Sailing round towards the lighthouse for magnificent views of the Applecross Mountains and Bealach Na Ba, the awe-inspiring Cuillin Range on the Isle of Skye and north to the Torridon Mountains.

The trip always finishes with a tour of the harbour, giving you the chance to get some fantastic photographs of Plockton from the sea.
