Operate from Elgol and are one of the longest established boat trips on Skye with trips to Loch Coruisk and the “Small Isles”. Wedding parties, film crews and climbers have all taken advantage of the company’s services – from the gaelic introduction at the start of your trip to the “craik” on the voyage from the skipper and crew you are guaranteed a great day out!
Both Bella Jane and Misty Isles trips get heavily booked, especially in the summer so advance calls are advisable as Elgol is a remote but vibrant location. It would be a shame to make the journey to the village and not make it onto either of the boat co.s trips.
