Shearwater – Formerly ‘Summer Queen Cruises’

Operating from Ullapool Harbour, Shearwater cruises offer trips to Loch Broom and the Summer Isles. Cruises are approximately 2 hours 15 minutes taking in the region’s wildlife and scenery. This is a more sedate form of transport for those who like their comfort. The rout of the trip is similar to SeaScape.

Both trips aim to spot a wide variety of the marine and bird life found in the area. This will include, seals, dolphins, porpoise, whales, sea eagles and much more. Both crews are very knowledgeable and provide a commentary.
