Staffa and Treshnish Isles Cruise

Staffa and Treshnish Isles Cruise

Staffa and the Treshnish Isles cruise

From Craignure it's a scenic transfer across Mull to Ulva Ferry for departure to the unique geological phenomena of Staffa. Walk inside impressive Fingal's Cave and enjoy panoramic views as you explore the island. It's a quick crossing to the Treshnish Isles for an extended, usually landing, cruise with plenty of time to enjoy the rich bird and sea life as we cruise.

Late August/early September brings the Atlantic Grey seal pups with over 1000 born each year. Passing the Carnaburgh islands we have a chance to spot sea eagles, dolphins, minke whales, basking sharks, porpoise and otters. Watch our video of this tour

Please note that the season for viewing puffins on this trip runs until early August when the puffins will leave. From August wildlife you may encounter includes Atlantic Grey seals, dolphins, seal eagles and other local wildlife. Landings on Staffa are subject to favourable sea and weather conditions.

For lovers of
