Boat trips and water sportsLate spring, summer and early autumn are the best time to get out on the water because of favourable water conditions. The 300 miles of Mull and Iona coastline have beautiful sea lochs and offshore islands to explore with the help of specialist operators. The Treshnish Isles and Staffa with Fingal’s cave and nesting puffins are popular destinations, or choose to search for cetaceans at sea or sail to seldom visited secluded inlets and islets. A new watersports facility in the Ross of Mull offers guided kayaking, paddle boarding and dinghy sailing.

The best way to encounter the various wildlife species, often rare, which live on Mull & Iona is by booking a specialist tour. This provides the best chance of sightings without disturbing the wildlife, while getting an insight into the natural environment, including plant and insect life as well as mammals and birds.
