Skye Boat Trips

Wildlife

Join Skye Marine for a truly memorable boat trip from the shore of Loch Greshornish, Edinbane - on the road to Dunvegan Castle from Portree. You'll head out into Loch Greshornish (originally known as Arnisort = Loch of the Eagle), then on to Loch Snizort (Loch of the Snow) and Loch Diubaig (Loch of the Black Bay) and, depending on the time of year, you'll have a great chance of seeing seals, puffins, dolphins, porpoise, Minke whales, the elusive sea eagles and even otters + an abundance of other marine mammals and seabirds around some of the remote, uninhabited islands that we visit. Our experienced skipper will take you to the very best locations that can only be accessed by boat, like the Eas Tardil waterfall and the Ascrib Islands. Binoculars are carried on board but don’t forget to bring your camera!!

1.5-hour wildlife trip 40 per person (aged 16 or over), £30 per child (aged 3 to 15), under 3s go free (max. 5 persons, min. 2 adult fares).

If you wish to extend your trip once it has begun and no other trips are booked then you can do so by ½ hour blocks for an additional charge of £15 per person. The additional charge can be paid once back on shore.

Fishing

If you’d like to catch your own supper while surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of Lock Snizort then our skipper will use his local knowledge to get you to some of our best fishing grounds.

2-hour fishing trip £50 per person. Rod and tackle hire also available at £10 per person (normally departs 5pm onwards). Don’t worry if you’ve never been fishing before – our skipper will look after you. Minimum 2 people.

If you wish to extend your fishing trip once it has begun and no other trips are booked then you can do so in ½ hour blocks for an additional charge of £15 per person. The additional charge can be paid once back on shore.

Charter

You can also charter the boat (with skipper) for longer and/or exclusive trips and for our optional hands-on underwater drone experience where you can pilot our drone to see what's below the waves and record a video of your underwater adventures.

Charter trip ½ day (4 hours) £300 (single person to max. 4 persons).

For other charter durations please call for price.

Underwater drone hire £100 in addition to charter cost.
