There are many boat trips available on Skye, each one offering a different type of experience and opportunity to see wildlife. From Waternish, about 20 minutes away, you can take a boat to the archipelago of St Kilda, the remotest part of the British Isles and home to north-west Europe’s largest seabird colony. From Portree, the Seaflower Skye offers luxury sea tours to explore the stunning coastline of Skye from the water. We would also recommend a boat trip from Elgol to Loch Coruisk – simply stunning. We remember one such outing when the boat was escorted by about 20 dolphins for part of the way. Just magical!
