A Wildlife Guide on every cruise

We are the only Scottish small-ship cruise company that provides accompanied on-shore guided trips, with a specialist Wildlife Guide on board every cruise. Our Skippers and Wildlife Guides are expert at reading the sea and landscape, backed by years of experience and knowledge, to find and identify wildlife in the west coast of Scotland. Our excellent crews, who have been with us over many seasons, ensure the holiday of a lifetime for our guests - our ratio of 4 Crew to 8 or 10 guests is the highest in small ship cruising in the Hebrides.

Get a taste of the fabulous food served on board our cruises

The meals served onboard our vessels by our onboard Chefs are legendary. All food is prepared from fresh, local ingredients, creating delicious dishes that get rave reviews from our guests.  A speciality of Hebrides Cruises is hand-dived scallops, often provided by the Skipper on board actually doing the dive!
