If you don't have your own boat, or don't feel confident to go out on your own, but would still like a trip on the water, there are many boats offering trips of varying duration, details for which are given further down this page. For some this is an opportunity to go wildlife spotting, whale watching, visiting the world famous Corryvreckan whirlpool, sight seeing or just for the joy of it.
