Cruising the West Coast of Scotland since 1995

Hebrides Cruises is a family-run business based in Oban on the west coast of Scotland, offering wildlife cruises to the islands of the Inner and Outer Hebrides, St Kilda and the remote North West coast of Scotland. Four crew on each vessel show the huge diversity of wildlife and stunning scenery to our guests, coupled with the best of highland hospitality on board. Our two sea-going vessels offer luxury accommodation and the food served on board by our professional Chefs is of the highest quality.

Hebrides Cruises is owned and run by Rob Barlow who has spent all his working life at sea and is one of the Skippers on board. He has been diving for over 20 years and will happily dive for scallops to serve up on board the cruises! A qualified engineer, and a member of Tobermory Coastguard team, Rob has over 20 years experience of running boat cruises and charters around the West Coast of Scotland. Rob’s daughter, Emma is responsible for sales, administration and customer care, communicating with guests from the first point of enquiry until the end of their cruise. 

Hebrides Cruises is supported by an outstanding team of colleagues, expert in working at sea, the natural environment and hospitality. Our Skippers, Wildlife Guides, Bosuns and Chefs are the best available.
