Ardnamurchan Charters was founded in 1985 as a small family business renting out self drive boats. In 1995 we started wildlife tours with our charter boat "laurenca II", a 38' Aquastar.
Today we reamin a small buisness with self drive boats and over 20 years of experince in providing wonderful wildlife experinces onboard Laurenca. In 2001 we started combining our wildlife experinces with our self catered accommodation, Laga Lodge, a purpose built pole building offering bespoke accommodation to support wildlife and water based holidays. In 2003 we became the care takers of the Isle of Carna in Loch Sunart, offering a truly remote getaway in the two cottages, whilst being fully supported and protected by our exisiting marine operation. Since then we have established a comunity interest company, Carna Conservation Initative to support and enhance the wildlife and ecology of Carna.
We have an active role in establishing and promoting the recent Loch Sunart, Sound of Mull & Firth of Lorn marine protected area (MPA). We hope this will protect the Loch for future generations to come and enable sustianable use of the Loch for fishing as well as wildlife tourism. We are now offering a range of tripts to suite many interests; from short, family friendly, introductory 2 hour trips to full blown adventerous private charters.
