Self Drive Boat Hire

Self Drive Boat Hire

The 16 foot “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.

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.

  • No prior experience or certification is required.
  • Explore the Loch up to 3 miles from Laga Bay.
  • Capacity for 6 persons, including disabled access.
  • Excellent fishing boats for 2-6 people.
  • Fishing tackle is available at £10 per rod.

Equipped with an 8 horsepower 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 the map below for a rough outline of the restrictions.

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.
