Western Isles Cruises ltd operate the Knoydart Ferry Service, 1 Hour Wildlife Cruises & Private charter for Weddings and special occasions, plus fast remote drop off and pickups in our RIB.
We operate a daily all year round Knoydart ferry service between the Scottish fishing village of Mallaig, to Inverie and Tarbet in Loch Nevis. This is a life-line service to one of the most remote places in Scotland and only accessible by sea or a two day walk.
The transfer from Mallaig to Inverie, takes between 25 and 40 minutes depending on the boat you catch. Children ages 5 to 13 travel half price and children under 5 and dogs travel free. We also accept highland travel cards.
Operating daily from Mallaig throughout July to September, this trip is designed to fit in with the Jacobite Steam Train. Leaving Mallaig we travel out to Green Island on the Knoydart Peninsular where you will see seals relaxing on the rocks.
The waters are frequently visited by a variety of birds, porpoises, dolphins, whales and basking sharks. Relax with a drink from the bar and enjoy some of the best scenery you will very see anywhere.
The Big Dipper provides comfortable and safe transport to, and from, Knoydart and the surrounding areas. Charter our boat for a one hour wildlife adventure, a half day or even a whole day charter.
Perfect for fast transfers and drop of in remote locations.
This is one of the best thing you will do on holiday this year.
