We are a boat tour company based on the beautiful Isle of Islay. We offer a unique way to explore Islay through our wide variety of trips.
We have five charter boats all offering a range of facilities to suit everyone’s needs. We can cater for all experiences- if you want a gentle cruise wildlife spotting, or a leisurely day of fishing, we have our hard boats with onboard indoor amenities. For those seeking an adrenaline-filled spin, we have both open and closed RIBS offering a faster paced and thrilling ride. Our RIBs and hard boats can also be used for private charters and comfortable journeys for those travelling further afield.
Our amazing boat tours offer you the chance to see the most spectacular wildlife that the Islay shores have to offer. We are based out of Port Ellen Marina and run trips daily April – October where possible.
Are you looking for something really special? Here at Islay Sea Adventures, we offer a range of private charters- from hosting international corporate events to bespoke island- hopping experiences. We can tailor a charter to your needs, whatever the occasion.
We, together with our two teenage sons, had a brilliant afternoon fishing trip out of Port Ellen. Alex and Adrian were great fun, knowledgeable and obviously knew the best fishing spots because had our first fish within minutes of dropping the line and went on to bring in a huge haul. We had a very tasty dinner later of mackerel, coley and pollock. We were even given a dram of Ardbeg on the way home to enjoy looking out over the distillery. Thoroughly recommend for a fun afternoon out.
Brilliant morning out with the boys on a fishing tour - first catch landed seconds after casting out! Very patient and knowledgeable with our mixed ability group, moving to different locations to get a good variety of fish, pointing out landmarks, taking us to say hi to a group of seals, dishing out the sweeties and sending us on our way with a wee dram. Plenty of decent size pollock to cook for our tea, too. Definitely the highlight of our time on Islay.
Great day helped by fantastic weather. Lori and Gus really helped prior to day itself and Harold and his oppo looked after us all day. Time goes by on an Islay Sea Adventure. A wee dram to all. David
Excellent trip, great skipper with lots of chat and information, very friendly. Beautiful scenery. Saw a white tailed sea eagle and plenty of seals. Thoroughly recommend this trip
Sailing round the less-accessible Islay coastline, looking at the distilleries from the sea and spotting eagles, seals, deer, etc. from a boat, with a knowlegeable guide giving us anecdotes and stories (Neil I think his name was), was just great. I thoroughly recommend the experience.
Our high quality, well equipped glamping pods offer a luxurious approach to the traditional camping experience without losing the freedom and tranquility of that “back to nature” experience. Because the pods are heated, they offer warm and cosy accommodation – “camping all year round”!Visit our Website
