Having previously been to Eigg on the "proper " ferry we decided to go to Muck on the Sheerwater. It is that closer to the road junction at Fort William than going further to Mallaig. The boat is that much smaller and more of a local pleasure craft than a ferry but unfortunately the crew did not fully exploit this... More

We chanced a trip to Eigg in very poor weather - heavy rain and wind. The sailing was absolutely fine, a little bouncy at times but nothing too serious. I would recommend in these conditions that you sit inside or under the tarp as people outside at the back got very wet when the waves came over! It was not... More

We had a really really good day out with this trip. We started in the shop / cafe which has good food and drink and greate views before setting off in poor weather. But the sun came out and the trip to EIgg was exciting. 30 minutes in the characterful cafe then onto Muck with seals and puffins on the... More

My wife and I took a day trip on the MV Sheerwater in June to the island of Rum. The boat leaves from Arisaig harbour and takes about 1 ½ hours to get to Rum. You can buy your tickets in the harbour shop and we paid £25 each for the return trip. The boat is medium size and takes... More

Our main reason for travelling was to get to Eigg...but in any kind of reasonable weather for watching the world go by, the Sheerwater is an unbeatable way to get to the Small Isles. Wildlife can't be guaranteed, but you would be unlucky not to see seals and a decent selection of seabirds in the summer. We got a distant... More

I would certainly do this again, we see seals, dolphins and many sea birds. The views are outstanding and the weather was perfect in July. We were very lucky it was clear and sunny on our outing.

We took this trip last week while on holiday and really enjoyed it. Although the boat is a ferry to Eigg and Muck, if it spots something it will stop or even change direction to let you get a better view. We were lucky enough to see Minke Whales quite close to us, porpoise, seals and lots of sea birds.... More

Perhaps we were fooled by the website, or the words "Wildlife Island Cruises" on the front of the boat, but this is primarily a ferry service. We saw seals basking on rocks, but there were no detours, and no announcement either for them or for the Great Skua that flew low over the boat. Having said that, it was a... More

It was supposed to be a bike trip to Arisaig, but it turns out to be a nice cruise to Isle of Rum, with great skipper who was trying to find as much wild life as possible during our two hour ferry crossing from Arisaig. Isle of Rum was amazing, but sailing was exciting as well, as we can see... More

I was going to see an Isle of Rum, but the ferry wasn't just ferry, but cruise to look for wild life. It was so amazing. We saw only some dolphins and lot of seals, but it was very close look, because skipper made it sure we can see them from as close as it was possible to not disturb... More
