Summer Queen

Sailing from Ullapool, on the West Coast of The Highlands of Scotland, The Summer Queen offers visitors the opportunity to visit the famous Summer Isles. Our 4 hour morning and 2 hour afternoon cruises take in the beauty of Loch Broom and the Summer Isles, encountering local wildlife. Morning Cruise: 10.00 am, 4 hours Afternoon Cruise: 14.15 pm, 2 hours Through the season we pass the nesting sites of many sea birds and watch them hatch and grow until they leave the nest. We see Grey and Common Seals at sea and resting on the shorelines of the Islands we sail between. Porpoise, dolphin and even whales visit our waters and it is not uncommon for them to pass by and even come to inspect the boat through our trip. We land on Tanera Mhor, the last inhabited Summer Isle and the last place in Britain to print its own stamps, where visitors can relax at the cafe or take a walk up the hill and view the surrounding Summer Isles and Achiltibuie. Our afternoon cruise circumnavigates Isle Martin, passing the nesting cliffs, seal beaches and salmon fish farms. We often sail by working fishing boats creeling and trawling the seas for prawns, and steam by boats heading for or away from Ullapool. Commentary is given at all points of interest and when we encounter wildlife, we try ot translate names where possible (sometimes with mixed results!) and the crew are happy to answer any questions you may have on the sights, wildlife and environment you encounter. Warm clothing is often advisable. A camera and binoculars will prove invaluable (we can not supply these). PLEASE NOTE: We do not operate during the winter due to weather conditions. We also will cancel if there are not sufficient numbers of passengers or the weather conditions are poor. Please confirm with us prior to arriving if you are travelling far. Please take a look around our site for more details of the cruises on offer and pictures of the wildlife.
