Day Trips and Overnight Taster Sails

 Call us on +447827888321 to find out if we have any availability to charter Selkie for a day or overnight sail during the dates you have in mind. 

Sailing is such an amazing and powerful experience and this is your chance to discover the joys of handling a world class sailing yacht and navigating amongst Scotland’s beautiful west coast islands and lochs. We will show you how to hoist the mainsail, unfurl the jibs and harness the wind to move the boat. Have a go at the helm, steering the course. Selkie’s twin rudders mean that everyone, even kids, will enjoy a stint at the wheel. Depending on the voyage, we will drop anchor and go ashore to explore a remote bay. You can see how you do with the oars rowing the dinghy, or have a go with handling the outboard. There is fishing tackle onboard for the hopeful angler, a deck BBQ – and it’s not unusual to make a beach fire to cook your catch and toast marshmallows.

Selkie sails from Eigg and Mallaig though we can accommodate other ports and bays. You can charter Selkie for a few hours, a night or a few weeks.  Experience anchoring in a remote and sheltered bay, share a delicious meal with Selkie’s crew and hear tales of life on the ocean and the islands. A unique and edifying adventure that will leave you with golden memories. Our voyages are suitable for all ages who are keen to give it a go.  For those who want to spend more time onboard please just ask.

If you are holidaying on the west coast of Scotland, in Lochaber, on the Road to the Isles and Ardnamurcan then a trip with Selkie is an immersion in the beauty and grandeur of the Hebridean and Small Isles scenery, a way to be in nature surrounded by the incredible Scottish wildlife. Watch out for the sea birds and mammals that live in, on and by the water.

For those on our overnight taster sails the food on Selkie is an important part of our voyage and we use local produce as much as possible both from the skipper’s croft and other local Eigg crofts and businesses.
