Tiree Sea Tours to launch this Easter!
An Tirisdeach is delighted to introduce you to Tiree’s newest business venture, Tiree Sea Tours, which is set to launch this Easter, conducting boat tours out of Scarinish Pier.
Uncle and nephew duo, Donnie and Frazer MacInnes have recently purchased a 12-passenger capacity Rib, named ‘Aurora’ which will be visiting popular locations such as Skerryvore, The Treshnish Isles, Fingles Cave and Iona. Tiree Sea Tours aims to run trips throughout the season from April to October, with set visits for each day and also the opportunity to charter or customise your rib journey.
It’s been over 10 years since any type of organised sea tours were conducted out of Tiree, the last to operate excursions were Iain and Angus MacPhail (also an uncle and nephew duo) who ran Skipinnish Sea Tours. Frazer told An Tirisdeach ‘For many years now, I’ve heard of various visitors and locals alike asking about the availability of sea and boat trips out of Tiree. We are surrounded by some spectacular scenery and landmarks, such as the legendary Skerryvore therefore it made sense to try and satisfy the demand. I’m very excited to kick start the first season of Tiree Sea Tours – there will be a little bit of trial and error as we get going, figuring out what routes work and which are most popular, but enquiries have been positive so far.
The first scheduled trip to take place this season is a visit to Skerryvore lighthouse, on Friday the 30th of March, departing at 2pm. Spaces are limited so please get in touch to book. Other trips will be advertised in due course.
Tiree Lobster and Crab will also be reopening this Easter for its second season. Selling a range of locally sourced seafood and shellfish and freshly prepared snacks.
