About

Raptor Boating provides wildlife & scenic tours, water taxi and private charter services.

Raptor is an 11 metre Redbay cabin RIB powered by twin 300hp Yamaha outboards which is licensed for 12 passengers. All passengers can be seated on the outside seating area and there is additional seating in the cabin.

Scheduled Wildlife & Scenic Tours

Our 90 minute wildlife and scenic tour will take you to one of the seal colonies to give you close up views of our resident Atlantic grey seals.

Wildlife sightings can also include dolphins, porpoise and a variety of birdlife such as puffins (from April – July), gannets, guillemots, fulmars, cormorants and razorbills. Raptor’s speed enables the tour to cover many miles, increasing the chances of wildlife encounters.

Your local skipper will give you a guided tour of the islands and point out sights of interest along the way. Raptor has an outside steering position which is used when in close proximity to wildlife, giving an opportunity to ask any questions direct to the skipper. The trips route will vary depending on weather and sea conditions meaning no two trips are ever the same. 

The trip is fast, fun and suitable for all the family, young and old. Our outside seating area offers a fantastic viewing platform for taking in the wildlife, stunning scenery and beauty that the islands have to offer.

Online booking is available and additional trips can be scheduled to meet demand.
