Islay Sea Adventures

Join Islay’s only 5* wildlife experience

We are Islay's only boat tour company. We offer a range of tours, including wildlife, fishing, seafood and Corryveckan.

  • Looking for something bespoke and personal? We also offer private charters where you can choose the time, destination and adventure.
  • Popular charters include, but are not limited to - luxury seafood tours, transfers to neighbouring islands, Northern Ireland & mainland Scotland, private whisky tours by water, half-day fishing trips, and boat hire for engagements, weddings and birthday celebrations.
  • We have five charter boats, all offering a range of facilities to suit everyone's needs and can cater to all experiences.
  • Our popular wildlife trips last around 2.5 hours, passing three of Islay's world-famous distilleries and Dunyvaig Castle ruins.
  • For those seeking an adrenaline-filled spin, we have both open and closed RIBS offering a faster-paced and thrilling ride.
  • Our covered RIB 'Storo' can also provide comfortable journeys to those travelling further afield, such as Northern Ireland.
  • We also have a larger rigid boat for a more gentle tour, offering large deck areas and toilets.
    Each tour allows you to get close to wildlife, such as red deer stags, white-tailed eagles, seabirds and harbour seals, and a chance to spot rarer species, such as bottlenose dolphins.

We are based in Port Ellen Marina and run trips daily from April to October, where possible. Private charters are available any time of year.
