See Scotland from a new angle. Turn your next trip to Scotland into an adventure with a cruise around the breathtaking Hebridean Islands, including St Kilda, with St Hildas Sea Adventures.
Climb aboard their beautiful ship — the traditional, wooden ketch St Hilda — or their powerful, little cruise ship, Seahorse II. Both are ideal for memorable family vacations. Discover a unique way to experience Scotland as you set sail through the stunning islands and highlands of the majestic West Coast of Scotland.
There are a great range of activities both ashore and afloat. On St Hilda you can haul up the sails and learn basic seamanship. In quiet, secluded anchorages you can shoot lobster pots, fish for the evening meal, snorkel, swim and dive overboard. There are kayaks and paddleboards for exploring sea caves or paddling around. On some cruises there are wildlife, art and photographic specialists aboard.
Ashore there are great hikes into the mountains and along the seashore, as well as visits to ancient Scottish castles and breeding seabird colonies. Don’t miss the iconic puffins and sea eagles. The West Coast is rich in wildlife, and families never forget their sightings of rafts of seabirds, golden and sea eagles, puffins, otters, seals, porpoises, basking sharks, orcas and minke whales.
For a memorable way to enjoy that the multi-generational vacation or celebrate special events such as birthdays and anniversaries, both ships can be privately chartered.
Throughout your voyage you will be served delicious local food by your dedicated chef and looked after by your knowledgeable crew.
