Boat Trips & Tours in Scotland's West Coast

Scotland's Adventure Coast

Boat trips are an unbeatable way to explore Argyll & the Isles and discover the wonderful wildlife that inhabits the region’s waters and coastline. The sea lochs which characterise Cowal are also fabulous places for a boat cruise, or why not experience Loch Lomond’s magnificent scenery and its varied wildlife with a tailored cruise or catch one of the many water buses.

Whether it’s a gentle sail down the Kyles of Bute or an adrenaline fuelled RIB ride through the infamous Gulf of Correyvreckan or a week-long island hopping sail on a yacht, there’s a boat trip to suit everyone in Argyll and the Isles.

On any Calmac ferry journey, you’ll enjoy incredible sea views, often spotting wildlife. However, to witness some awe-inspiring natural attractions and get up close and personal with a host of wildlife, including dolphins, seals, basking sharks, whales and sea eagles, our numerous specialist boat operators can take you out on an array of wildlife boat trips.
