Mallaig Wildlife Boat Trips

If you do nothing else whilst visiting Mallaig you must do this. Our One-Hour Wildlife Cruise has become the best attraction in Mallaig!

Designed to fit in with the Jacobite steam train and Scot Rail, this trip leaves Mallaig at 12:45, 14:30 and 17:00 daily April to October returning with plenty of time for the trains back to Fort William.

We leave the harbour with the isles of Skye, Rhum, and Eigg to our right. Crossing the entrance to Loch Nevis, we travel to Green Island on the Knoydart Peninsula. The waters are frequently visited by a variety of birds, seals, porpoises, dolphins, whales and basking sharks.

The MV Western Isles has toilets and a whisky bar aboard. You are welcome to bring your own food from the chippy or a sandwich from one of the local shops.

Children under five and dogs travel free.

All customers must arrive at least 5 minutes before sailing. Cancellations must be made more than 24 hours before to receive a full refund.
