Hebridean Adventures

Scottish whale, dolphin and wildlife-watching cruises.

Hebridean Adventures are a whale, dolphin and wildlife-watching tour operator offering guided cruises, day trips and land-based minibus tours to spot some of Scotland’s most iconic species from sea to shore.

Cruises run from April to October with departures from Mallaig, Stornoway and Ullapool at different times of year, and run from 2 to 6 nights in length.  Sailing around the Outer Hebrides and the Minch, including as far west as the lovely archipelago of St Kilda (Britain’s only dual UNESCO World Heritage site), and south to the famous Isle of Skye and the Small Isles.  Also visiting the Shiant Isles and the Summer Isles on our travels.

They are the only cruise operators based in the North Minch area (Stornoway), an area recognised as being one of the best cetacean watching locations in Europe, and can be spotting porpoises, dolphins and even whales within minutes of leaving the harbour on occasion.

In addition to guided wildlife watching on every cruise, they also offer a selection of cruises that include an additional activity led by an expert guide as well so visitors get 2 holidays for the price of 1!  This includes sea kayaking, photography, nature writing, art, snorkelling and wild swimming for example.  Some of their cruises also raise funds for organisations such as the Hebridean Whale & Dolphin Trust, the Sea Watch Foundation, the RSPB and the National Trust.

Why not leave your car in Ullapool and go as a foot passenger on the ferry to Stornoway and save on car costs and accommodation?

Available to book for private charter by friends and families, special interest groups, for corporate entertaining and retreats, for TV and filming or for research and scientific studies.  Please contact Hebridean Adventures to discuss your needs.
