Private Charters

Selkie is available for bespoke voyages for your family or groups of friends. Book a trip at a time that suits you to explore the beautiful coastline of Scotland’s islands and its lochs, anchoring in exquisite bays each night. Depending on your length of stay aboard, we can visit St Kilda, the Outer Hebrides, the Small Isles, Skye, Col and Tiree, or sail north to the Summer Isles and Shiants. 

The wild life we see is incredible, as are the vistas. It’s a special time spent together, sharing the experience. And everyone on the trip will enjoy delicious, home-cooked food, sourced locally. 

NB: Selkie has no scheduled winter trips. Take a look at the details below to get a flavour of what you can expect when you join us for a private charter or bespoke family voyage in  winter. 

Bespoke Family and Group Holidays

Selkie is a family boat and skipper Celia Bulls son, Dylan, now in his late teens, is an integral part of the team having lived on Selkie since turning three years old. We have together explored many nooks and crannies, beaches, castles and lighthouses of Scotland during our adventures. Each school holidays we plan a few weeks where we set sail to seek out new places and old favourites on our summer adventures. And you and your family can join us! 

The Hebridean sea is fantastic area for responsible marine wildlife watching. We love swimming and jumping in from Selkie, fishing and onboard BBQs, which have to include marshmallow toasting! While you’re with us, you have the opportunity to use a micro plastic trawl. We want our oceans to be clean for marine life and clearing the seas of plastic debris provides a great way to engage kids and parents alike to gain a picture of the state of our seas.
