New for this season
We will still be doing our standard Scalpay Circular trip each morning, Mon-Fri at 1000 and also on Mon and Fri afternoons at 1400. These last for around 2 hours and have a mix of wildlife scenery and local history.
On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from mid May-mid August we will be running a 3 hour non-landing trip to the famous Shiant Islands to visit the huge puffin and other seabird colonies there. As well as puffins there are guillemots, terns, kittiwakes, cormorants, sea eagles as well as many other types of birds found on the Shiants. This trip leaves at 1330 and is back on Scalpay for 1630.
On Wednesday afternoons we will be running a "deserted settlements" trip, taking a number of locations on the east side of Harris and Lewis. The trip lasts around 2 and a half hours and also departs at 1330.
All our trips are weather dependent and so we may need to adapt to the prevailing conditions on the day.
Tailored to the clients specific needs
Our fully coded vessel is well suited for a wide variety of commercial charters and safety boat cover. The removable forward seats add to the flexibility, along with the covered cabin for protection of delicate equipment. A diving platform and ladder on the stern allow for ease of access to and recovery from the water for underwater working.
Among our recent contracts was a 10 day spell providing safety cover to contractors carrying out an inspection of the Scalpay Bridge.
