Here is a perfect getaway for those who enjoy visiting islands, small ship cruising and the chance to explore on foot. Join the MS Hebridean Sky in Plymouth and visit some of the most idyllic islands of the United Kingdom as we sail north to Oban. During our eight night island hopping voyage, we will explore amazing little contained worlds including Alderney, Sark, Tresco and St Martin’s with their crystal clear waters and fine white sandy beaches that would not disgrace a Caribbean island. We also visit Bryher, Lundy and the Isle of Man which are rarely visited gems and almost never included on cruise schedules before spending a day in the beautiful Hebrides. Our time will be spent walking the nature trails, seeing the abundant birdlife and flowers and experiencing life in these remote communities.
Such an itinerary would be difficult to arrange independently and the MS Hebridean Sky is the perfect small ship for such a venture. A maximum of 100 passengers allows us to explore places otherwise inaccessible to larger ships and with our nimble Zodiac craft, we can land on out of the way coves and be footloose in a way that would be totally impractical for larger groups of passengers.
Our journey offers a portrait of life in our islands and is a wonderful opportunity to see some of our most beautiful places, meet some interesting inhabitants and learn more about both the past and present of Britain. Whether you be an avid gardener, birdwatcher, amateur historian, or simply enjoy sailing past and visiting some of the most enchanting places in the world, this trip has it all.
