Our boats

Our Redbay Cabin RIBs are custom-built for the Atlantic conditions we experience whilst looking for basking sharks and exploring the Hebrides. They are fast, strong, comfortable and reliable with enclosed cabins to keep you protected from the elements. These highly manoeuvrable boats are perfect for wildlife watching. Our boats exceed all MCA and coastguard requirements, and have twin engines for redundancy.

Your Comfort

There is ample room onboard all of our boats for your equipment and belongings. Cearban, Rannochmor & Schiehallion have an emergency chemical toilet on board. They have a limited capacity and use should be kept to a minimum. There is no toilet on Cearban Beag. Toilets can be found at the pier for use before and after tours, we also stop for a comfort break during the day. The design of RIBs mean they roll less on the waves, if you are concerned about seasickness sea our FAQs here.
