On this cruise we will swim in company with up to 6 guests and swim guide. Full support and safety cover by paddle board and or inflatable tender. Swimming twice a day. Sailing between breath taking locations and anchoring every night in a different spot.
Trip will be over 7 days /6 nights and you’ll get a chance to swim around Island castles and visit and swim to the islands of Skye, Rum, Eigg, Canna, Soay and Muck as well as some hard-to-reach mainland swim spots in Moidart and Knoydart.
Whether you’re an experienced swimmer or just want to give it a go and see what all this fuss is about, come join us. We can’t guarantee you won’t be hooked.
After an introduction to the boat, crew and a safety brief, we will have a short sail to a local anchorage to get our sea legs and let you get to know your home for the next week.
The format for the week will be that after breakfast we up anchor and sail to our first swim site, enjoy a group supported swim, returning to the yacht warming up with coffee and cake while we sail to our second swim site and overnight anchorage.
Where else could you swim stunning locations and get straight out into a warm shower, before settling down to a home cooked hot meal of local sustainable produce, sit back watch the sunset, recall stories under the blanket of the stars.
Of course, you can opt to sit out any swim and stay aboard or hop into the safety tender during the swim.

We want to welcome you aboard Stravaigin, our 44ft 8 berth yacht charter that sails from Oban in Scotland. We are a small family run business that offers boating holidays, sailing excursions and adventures along the stunning West Coast of Scotland, taking in the idyllic coastline, islands, secluded sea lochs, and sheltered coves.
Stravaigin is an old Scots word meaning “To wander with no particular intent” and we like to think that encapsules our ethos of immersive, slow adventures, exploring and discovering new landscapes, experiences, foods, cultures and creating meaningful experiences and memories that linger.
From a days’ yacht charter exploring inner Hebridean islands to a full week sailing holiday spent cruising the West Coast as well as enjoying other outdoor activities either as a couple, with friends or a family group cast off with Stravaigin to discover new and exciting horizons.
With more than 10,000 miles of spectacular coastline, you are sure to enjoy a boating holiday along Scotland’s rugged West Coast. We pride ourselves on providing our guests with the best quality experience where they are free to relax and enjoy the journey as we explore the breath-taking beauty of the Scottish coast.
