About Islay Sea Adventures:
We are a boat tour company based on the beautiful Isle of Islay. We offer a unique way to explore Islay through our wide variety of trips, including Wildlife, Fishing, Seafood, Corryveckan Whirlpool, Mull of Oa, Dawn, Dusk and Private Charter tours.
We have five charter boats all offering a range of facilities to suit everyone’s needs. We can cater for all experiences. If you want a gentle cruise wildlife spotting, eating local seafood or a leisurely day of fishing, we have our hard boats with onboard indoor amenities. For those seeking an adrenaline-filled spin, we have both open and closed RIBS offering a faster paced and thrilling ride. Our RIBs and hard boats can also be used for private charters and comfortable journeys for those travelling further afield.
Our amazing boat tours offer you the chance to see the most spectacular scenery that the Islay shores have to offer. We are based out of Port Ellen Marina and run trips daily April – October where possible. Private charters can run any time of year, weather depending.
Our popular wildlife tour takes you along the south-east coast of Islay, seeing castle ruins along with Laphroaig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg where our crew will give you some history. Then we head to a Special Area of Conservation where we see most of the wildlife, including harbour seals, red deer, fallow deer, seabirds and even sometimes white-tailed eagles, bottlenose dolphins or otters.
Our Seafood tours follow the same route as our wildlife trips but with the added luxury of local fresh seafood. Enjoy a Islay Lobster and Islay Crab platter along with fresh bread, salad and homemade dips. The star of the show is Islay hand-dived scallops available raw whisky-marinated and freshly cooked on a BBQ onboard the boat, in a delicious garlic chilli butter.
