Our exciting new 6-night yoga retreat cruise transports our guests from the stresses of day-to-day living to reinvigorate body and soul. Our “Serenity at Sea” cruise adds a yoga retreat to the relaxation and tranquillity of our cruises while discovering the inspirational islands of the Hebrides. This is an opportunity to start or deepen physical yoga practice, while immersed in stunningly beautiful locations and experiencing close encounters with nature and wildlife.
In August 2023, the Editor and Publisher of YOGA Magazine joined the yoga retreat cruise. Read the article about what they thought of their experience in YOGA Magazine.
Every day, our vessel carries our guests to a new, secluded location. Classes and workshops, led by an expert yoga practitioner, allows guests to connect back to themselves, diving deep into healing, meditation and ceremony. Whenever possible, sessions will take place on the idyllic deserted white sand beaches and rocky coastlines of Mull, Iona and other islands.
The Crew for this specialist cruise are hand-picked to complement the retreat. Skipper James Fairbairns helps choose the best shore visits and sea journeys to synchronise with the yoga programme, as well as identifying potentialwildlife encounters. The Chef provides delicious, healthy meals while the Steward is dedicated to providing outstanding hospitality and customer service. The cruise itinerary visits the lochs and bays of the sound of Mull, before heading to the magical Cairns of Coll in search of cetaceans. The vessel then journeys onwards to the north western coastline of Mull to explore many delightful small islands which are home to teeming wildlife. Finally, the vessel drops anchor in one of the serene sea lochs on the south coast of Mull, on the last night of the cruise, before heading for Oban the following morning.

Thank you to all who worked so hard to make my holiday all I could have wished it to be. The rest of the guests were good company and fun to be around. Yoga sessions well thought out, varied and fun. I especially enjoyed the time our skipper landed us all in remote and stunning locations. One of the most memorable places being the Isle of Gunna. This was where we were surprised after walking the dunes and enjoying yoga, to a birthday picnic of bubbly and cake on the beach. Thanks Sarah for having a birthday at just the right time. I haven’t felt so at peace yet so invigorated for a while I feel so blessed to have had such an experience of wilderness, sea, sand and amazing food. Our skipper was fantastic, scanning the horizon for wild life and things of interest while keeping us all safe. Seeing the area around Mull, Staffa (another memorable day), Inch Kenneth, Cairns of Coll and Ulva in all their glory from the sea was unforgettable. I enjoyed the week so much that I have booked a trip for my husband and me in 2025, on the Emma Jane with the same skipper, can’t wait.
