St Hilda Sea Adventures provides small ship sailing and wildlife holidays on the beautiful West Coast of Scotland. Exploring the breathtakingly beautiful islands, sea lochs and mountains of the Inner and Outer Hebrides makes for a truly unforgettable adventure for all ages.
St Hilda’s three small ships are St Hilda, a traditional, wooden ex-Tall Ship (maximum 6 passengers); Seahorse II, an ex-Norwegian Ferry (maximum 11 passengers); and Gemini Explorer, an ex-Cruising Lifeboat (maximum 8 passengers).
All three vessels have been converted to offer comfort and style, anchoring in sheltered, idyllic, safe havens where you can visit world famous malt whisky distilleries and remote Scottish islands such as St Kilda, Mull, Skye, Jura, Islay, Staffa and Iona.
