About Us

Shearwater Cruises

Shearwater cruises sail from Ullapool Harbour on the north west coast of the Highlands of Scotland. Ullapool is set on the shores of Loch Broom and has a long history of association with the sea. Ruins on the shores of the loch date back to Neolithic times along with Pictish Forts, Celtic Christian religions sites of worship and Viking settlements. Ullapool itself was established as a fishing port in 1788 and has been a hub of fishing, sailing, ferry operations and boating activity since. Our locality offers us access to some great features along the coast and the Summer Isles,

Please Note

Weather conditions can affect if we can sail and our route and what we see/encounter. We are in constant contact with local fishermen and wildlife groups notifying us of sightings in the area and have over 20 years experience of the loch and islands so will do our best to view what is out there.
