Join us on a day sail from Shetland’s ancient capital, Scalloway. We will sail through a range of beautiful isles and stunning coastal scenery on our round trip to Skeld, a beautiful haven on Shetland’s West Side.

Boarding the Swan at 9.30am, your day will begin with a comprehensive safety briefing including how to work the lines on deck and set the sails. We will then put this into practice, enjoying getting hands-on with the sailing as you explore the fantastic range of small isles, coastal waters and aquaculture farms between Scalloway and Skeld.

You will be well entertained during your trip by taking an active role in sailing the Swan, including hauling on ropes, taking a turn on the helm, and keeping a lookout, as well as spotting all the wildlife on offer.

We will anchor in a sheltered spot to enjoy a well earned lunch of soup and sandwiches before setting sail back to Scalloway to disembark at 4.30pm.

Included in voyage
  • Sailing instruction
