Boat Trips

Boat trips are a wonderful way to explore the Island and coast and offer great wildlife watching opportunities. They include trips to the now uninhabited Monach Isles (which have the second largest breeding colony of grey seals in the world), the Shiant Isles and also to the World Heritage site of St.Kilda (for more information see page on St.Kilda)

 Uist Sea Tours have day trips to St Kilda from the Lochboisdale/Eriskay and also offer wildlife watching trips. Other options include a trip to the beautiful uninhabited island of Mingulay to see the puffins. There is a good chance of seeing dolphins and porpoise on this trip. Kilda cruises and SeaHarrisrun day trips during the summer. All trips must be booked in advance.

Boat trips are a great way to explore the coastline of Uist and see wildlife such Golden Eagles, White tailed Sea Eagles, Red Deer, Seals and Otters. Contact Nick Ingledew to arrange a trip on the Lady Ann Boat.
