Dive Boat Charters

With her twin engines, electric windlass and large swim platform aft, Seabird is a safe, comfortable and highly convenient dive boat. Small inflatable tender with outboard also available.

Expeditions To The Top Of Britain

If you're thinking to take some friends and family on an expedition to Muckle Flugga, which is the northernmost tip of Britain, or to the islands of Out Skerries, Fetlar or Yell – we'll be pleased to help.

Evening Harbour Tours

Evenings are also a great time for a tour as quite often the wind falls flat. We can arrange one-hour or two-hour charters to explore the history around Lerwick harbour and use the lights on our remotely controlled submarine video camera, to explore the underwater life of Bressay Sound.

Sea Angling Trips

With her roomy deck and double hulls, Seabird is an ideal sea angling boat. There's good cod, ling, saithe and pollack fishing within half an hour of Lerwick Harbour. Bring your own gear or use ours. Bait provided.

Subsea Inspection Service

Underwater inspections of ships, moorings, piers, etc., at short notice, at Lerwick or anywhere on the east coast of Shetland.

If you have a problem, check it out first with our ROV and view a digital video of the scene – so when your divers enter the water they can go straight to the cause of the trouble and make the best use of their expensive time.

Weddings, Birthday Surprises & Celebrations Afloat

We enjoy planning charter trips for special occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries, surprise treats and retirement parties. Just give us a call and we can talk over your plans for an outing to remember.

Winter Wildlife Excursions

Shetland's winter wildlife is diverse and fascinating. In addition to residents like cormorants, shags, tysties, fulmars and eiders, we can show you great northern divers, red-breasted mergansers, little auks, long-tailed ducks, Slavonian grebes, Iceland and glaucous gulls, lots of wading birds on migration – and always crowds of seals. Oh, and the underwater visibility is actually at its best in winter – when the plankton blooms have died down.

If we have to wait for a 'weather window' we'll put your name and phone number on the standby list and call you as soon as it's possible to sail.

Year-Round Service

We are available for charter all year round for up to 12 passengers (weather/annual repairs permitting), outside our scheduled timetable.
