Throughout the year we run day trips and taster sails for those who want to try out the delights of sailing in these beautiful living waters, watching out for wildlife surrounded by the dramatic, historic west coast scenery. Selkie can take up to 10 guests for a day sail. A typical itinerary sailing from Eigg. We would meet you at 9am for a briefing, don life jackets and head out to Selkie in the dinghy. Once onboard you will be shown around the boat and we would prepare to leave. You can help as much or as little as you want with the boat manoeuvres. It's a great confidence builder learning to hoist a sail, take a reef, helm the boat. Lots of tea and biscuits to enjoy in the cockpit. We sail for a few hours then anchor, enjoy the packed lunch you've bought either onboard, or during a visit ashore before heading to our drop off point. In 2017 our Eigg departures circumnavigated Eigg, visited the Puffin Colony at Horse Island on Muck, sailed to Harris and Dibidil on Rum, and to Singing Sands at Loch Kentra.
