Boat Trips

For many of the visitors to Iona, whether on a day trip or an extended stay, the highlight of their experience is taking a boat trip around the immediate area. Find out more and book your trip now!

There are several boat trip operators working from Iona, and you can be picked up either at Iona Pier, or across the water in Fionnphort, if that suits you better.

You can make a trip to Staffa, to see the world famous Fingal’s Cave, or a slightly longer trip out to the Treshnish Isles. Both destinations offer an excellent opportunity to see delightful puffins and other seabirds at very close range, if the time of year is right.

There are both sailing boat and motor boat trips available, and some of the boat operators follow strict timetables, while others will tailor your trip to your own requirements. All trips are weather dependent.
