SeaSkye Adventures sail from Stein, Waternish, in the dramatic seascapes of northwest Skye where WILDLIFE WATCHING is exceptional! With regular sightings of whale, porpoise, dolphin, occasionally basking shark and a diversity of birdlife, including sea eagle, puffin and breeding seabird colonies. Seals are the children’s favourite, and they also love driving the boat and the relaxed manner of Gordon the skipper! GO ASHORE & EXPLORE, SUNSETS, CASTAWAY DAYS, FAMILY FRIENDLY’S, FISHING, WILD SWIM & SNORKEL are detailed on our website and fB page, with timetables, wildlife photos and video. Choose from 1½ hrs - Away Day Explorer, cost £20- £60pp or a Family Tour at £70/4 people. With a passion for wildlife, skippers are WiSE accredited, and with 30+ years experience at sea locally, we know the coastal ‘nooks & crannies’ best. Add a friendly island welcome, and our visitors frequently tell us ‘we’ve done the rest, you’ve been best!’ We hope to welcome you aboard for a SeaSkye Adventure!

Agree with the other favourable comments. We could not have enjoyed our trip more, despite not being able to see any whales or porpoises. We saw eagles, sea eagles, gannets and other birds and loved seeing the coast from a boat. Gordon was a fantastic...More
