4 hour boat hire

A 4 hour boat hire allows for a relaxed circumnavigation of Carna, with time to call in to see the seals at the top of Loch Teacuis, or for a casual afternoon fishing.

Ardnamurchan charters Full day boat hire

Full day boat hire

A full day hire will allow room for you to thoroughly explore the area at your own pace, or to spend a day dedicated to fishing.   Please let us know when you would like to arrive, anything after 08:30 can be accomodated, or 09:30 on Sundays.

The 16ft pioneer multi is an excellent craft for up to 6 persons, suitable for a wide range of activities in Loch Sunart. We offer 4 hour and full day hires ideal for exploring the mysteries of Loch Sunart, Carna and Loch Teacuis, as well as fishing and diving support.


Equipped with an 8 horse power 4 stroke outboard the boats are extremely easy to use and come with a full tank of fuel. After a comprehensive tuition and safety briefing lasting roughly 40 minutes you are free to explore the area at your own pace, investigating whatever catches your interest for as long as you wish. Please see map below for a rough outline of the restrictions.


Within the area you may spot otters and seals around Carna along with terns, red and black-throated divers, shags, eagles, ravens and porpoise in the deeper waters.


The pioneer is a perfect craft for 2 or 3 dedicated fishermen or a larger casual group, with full equipment available for hire.

Many species are available for sport fishing in the loch, primarily spurdog, polack, rays, herring, with perhaps even a sea trout, as well as mackerel in the season.
